Last week, I talked about how futile it is to blame others and to simply focus on what you can do. However, I did not mean to say that one should blame themselves for everything. There are undoubtedly things that are out of our control. While there is a possibility that we could have prevented certain unfortunate failures, it is simply impossible for us to predict everything that could go wrong.
Sometimes, we just have to understand that some things were inevitable or even if they were not, they are events that have passed. All we can do is learn from those mistakes and try not to repeat them. Although, it is not uncommon for people to repeat their mistakes over and over again. After all, change is not as simple at various main characters in entertainment mediums make it out to be. Or at least, I do not believe that it is something so simple and easy to accomplish.
To be able to analyse one’s own faults and weaknesses without letting it prevent you from moving forward is definitely not an easy task. In fact, it’s something that I struggle with a lot. Many times, I find myself simply accepting all my flaws like people tend to tell us nowadays and find it easy to identify myself as worthless and insignificant.
After all, if we are forced to look at the “bigger picture”, we are bound to feel a sense of how small we are compared to the size of the world. We aren’t like anime characters who bravely stand up to the world due to their personal convictions and beliefs. We aren’t so rebellious as to go out of our way to destroy and go against the system that has been laid out in front of us. Or at least, I am not. Perhaps there are many out there. Many people trying to change the world, believing that they can change the world. Perhaps, people who have already changed the world. If you think about it, there are definitely people like that… Just, not me.
I know for a fact that to stand up to the world and inspire change isn’t something that I can do. Why? I don’t have the mental aptitude for that. I don’t have the commitment, willingness or passion to do such a thing. Thus, I will forever be my very worst enemy… Except that I have accepted this self of mine.
I’m sure you can guys can see what I’m talking about, can’t you? Realising your weaknesses and blaming yourself isn’t enough. People should learn from people like me, what not to do. Basically, don’t bring yourself down just to live at rock bottom your whole life. Blaming yourself for everything without doing anything will solve nothing. It will only make you feel worse. Not only that, the people around you who care for you would start to worry for you as well. When you are dejected and blaming yourself for faults that those around you may not even be able to see, those who care for you would likely feel at a loss as to what they should do.
Of course, I’m not one to tell anyone how to live. Each and every person should decide whatever they want to do with their lives and take responsibility for it.
That’s all there is to it.
