Stop Blaming Religion, The Government, The Weather Or Your Neighbor's Dog For Your Messed Up Life

Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

Stop blaming religion, the government, the weather or your neighbor's dog for your messed up life.

Yes, the government should be giving us what we deserve from the tax they collect from us every freaking time we receive our salary or spend our money.

Yes, the government should not be stealing from us, should be fixing the problem of our country from poverty to education to healthcare to infrastructures. 

But, the government can't throw our trash for us so as to avoid clogging of drainage which eventually causes flood. I think no matter how well constructed our roads are, if we keep on treating our streets as garbage areas it will always clog.

The government can't pass your exams for you. You have to do it. Study.  

Stop partying, and spending your allowance on drugs and booze until you've got none left to pay for your tuition fee.

The government won't make your resume and look for jobs for you. You have to move your lazy ass.

The government can't save a portion of your salary for you and invest it to secure your future.

If you let your tax end your dreams, then you're doomed.

If you didn't sleep because you partied all night, who's fault is it that you feel crappy waking up?

Stop blaming religion. It's okay if you don't believe in higher power, that's your choice. No one's questioning your faith, or the lack thereof. 

But to blame religion for your poverty? For war? For you acne breakout? Are you saying other people's belief is messing up your perfect world? But, your beliefs aren't messing up their lives. They're not blaming you for their tribulations, aren't they?  
They're taking responsibility. 

If you expect ONLY the faithful, ONLY the government or ONLY the church leaders/organizations to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless and clothe the naked, isn't it passing the responsibility to others?  

Aren't you saying "that's your job, not mine. I've got nothing to do with that?" 
What makes you different from the rest of the world that you're criticizing. 

What makes you better?

I believe peace begins inside all of us. Like happiness, it's an inside job. You can't expect to live in a quiet world, when your inner world is in pandemonium. Because you can't give something you don't have. 

You can't demand a peaceful workplace when you don't want to live harmoniously with the people around you, when you look for trouble constantly and you love conflict, when it's your hobby to provoke others.

You can't demand for a great life if you're living in mediocrity. You can't ask for an abundant future if you don't even have the self-control over your finances. You can't blame the world for your illness if you haven't been taking care of yourself.

If you keep on pointing fingers and blaming others for your mishaps, it's like saying your life, your destiny, everything about you is controlled by others. It's like saying you're helpless and you can only improve your life if they will change or improve it for you. It's saying they are responsible for you.

You can't change the world, but you can change yourself.

You can't control the government, but you can control yourself.

It's not the government's, the religion's, the weather's or your neighbor's life to live. It's yours.  

Why will you let your life be controlled by these external factors?

Why will you give them an authority to shape your destiny?

Are you that helpless?

Life is what YOU make it. Not what the government, the religion, the weather or your neighbor's dog make.

Please.Grow some balls and start taking responsibility.

Look at where you are contributing to the situation. You can't be that innocent. It takes two to tango.

Wait! I've got more stories for you...
