We all like to make excuses when life goes wrong.
It’s easier to blame others instead of ourselves if we make mistakes and really, we should hold our hands up and admit that sometimes we take the easy way out. We shift blame and responsibility so that we don’t have to feel bad about any decision but there’s no point berating yourself if you’ve made an error or two, it is part of the human condition after all.
