Time was when I had nothing, my rich friends fled and left me all alone, I accused them of pride, heck I even called them wicked
Time was, I had a lot, I fled from my friends who had nothing and did to them what I accused my rich friends of doing to me.
Time was when I was a child, I saw my father as a mean man, I said he maltreated my mother. I swore to myself that when I grow up, I will not allow anyone treat me unfairly.
Time came I grew up, I even got married. I perceived that my husband will maltreat me so I maltreated him first. I did to him what I accused my father of doing to my mother.
Time was when I had no job, I blamed my teachers for not teaching me well, I blamed my father for not sending me to school at a younger age, I blamed the Government for not providing the enabling environment.
Time came and I got a job but I did not really like my boss. He was always scolding me for coming late to work and for doing a shabby job. But it’s not my fault. My home is far from my work place and since I did not graduate from a good school I can’t really do much.
So you see, the problem is always out there and it’s always other peoples fault. We hardly accept any blame when things go wrong but when things go well, we take credit for it.
Would it were that I remained poor, I would still be humble , would it were that I did my job well, I would still have a job, would it were that I was nicer to my husband, I would still be married,
WOULD IT WERE THAT WE ACKNOWLEDGE OUR OWN FAULT.
