Who the Hell is Responsible?

"Damn that guy, he really spoiled my mood"

"I am gonna kill him, It was due to him I did not get the promotion"

"How dare he? How can he treat me like this?

"How can he do this to me? I had so much trust and faith on him!"

How many times have you felt this way? How many times have you heard any of your friends feel this way?

Is it fair enough to blame others? Does it makes any sense? Honestly, No

It is always you, who let your mood to be spoiled by you.

It is always you, who was lethargic, din't do the right things and you are the reason why you did not get the promotion.

It is always you, who made him to treat you that way.

It is always you, who misplaced your trust.

If you think deep enough, this could be applied to all situations and at the end of the day, it is always YOU and ONLY YOU, who controls your destiny.

p.s
Inspired by quotes from Seven Habits of Highly Effective People

"As Eleanor Roosevelt observed, "No one can hurt you without your consent." In the words of  Gandhi, "They cannot take away our self respect if we do not give it to them." It is our willing  permission, our consent to what happens to us, that hurts us far more than what happens to us in the first place."

Yep. At the end it all boils down to you. chances taken or missed, risks taken or missed, money earned or not. You are responsible for your actions taken or not taken.
