No matter how many times we convince ourselves that we have fully internalized this lesson, it always seems to find a way of creeping back into our life. It’s always easier to explain away our woes as being the result of another ones carelessness. While at times this may be true, never does it warrant dwelling upon the agency of someone or something over which you have no control. It really is a hollow feeling, when you’ve finally run out of scapegoats, and are forced to look squarely in the mirror. I have learned to take the approach of trying to gain what you can from a situation, work at the things you’re able to and try harder next time. But with that being said, this plan certainly isn’t foolproof. Constant vigilance is required to keep that weed from growing, and laziness breeds only discontent.
