Facing Reality

Sometimes people try to escape their reality by changing jobs, moving to a new city, or even changing partners. These measures may be necessary at times, but escapism is only a temporary solution.

If you are not willing to face the source of your problems, running away only makes solving them more difficult. Moreover, you will find yourself experiencing similar challenges down the road.

We also fall into the trap of blaming others when we’re part of the problem. Our problems don’t go away with a change of scenery. Often, it requires a change of heart and an adjustment of our ego.

Blaming Others

You cannot run away from yourself, so blaming others is worthless. You are responsible for your thoughts and actions, as well as what unfolds before you. As long as you blame others, you will continue making the same mistakes.

It is not uncommon for us to shift the blame to someone else to avoid feelings of guilt. Unfortunately, this doesn’t solve the underlying issue. When you encounter trouble, take inventory of your attitude and behavior and see if that could be the source of the problem.
