Self-Reflection — Say What!
Can you see yourself?
Self-Reflection… too often we see the failings of others without seeing the same failings within our own lives.
Too often we say things, do things or act in haste or with selfish motivations and then blame others for the outcomes resulting from those things we’ve said, done or acted upon.
What is the mechanism within us that deflects our own personal responsibility for our own choices; things we’ve said, deeds we’ve done or actions we’ve rendered?
Are you talking to me?
Why do we find it so hard to admit when we have done evil, selfish or willful acts?
Is it cowardice – in this instance – the lack of ability or courage to see one’s self honestly?
Why must we blame others for when we have voiced hateful remarks? “Oh, they made me say it!” Own up! You said it from your own heart and as we know, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. That means you said it because your heart agreed with it.
