OUT THERE

time was, time came

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.

  4. It makes a lot of sense, just wish that many out there, will be privileged to READ this. Is just like, a student WHO got carryover…… and said my Lecturer gave me; but if he pass…… the language will change I pass the course. Knowingfully well that it was is fault that gave birth failure. By so doing, instead of correcting himself for perfection, he blaming others and making more mistake life. So so so messaging, good inspiration and life helping wire. Keep it up

  5. Nice work my dear friend.
    It’s in the character of man not to see his own faults but blame every misfortune on others. It’s of late I learnt to see my own faults too…. It’s funny
