I find it disheartening when I run into people who continually blame everyone around them for their situation in life.  I mean, come on – you are where you are because of choices you have made.

I am sure you have all run into those people – you know the ones. “I would be a nice person if ________ just understood me.”  “I would act properly if ________ would treat me right.”  Blah, blah, blah.  Get a clue – your mistreatment (real or imagined) is not a sentence or excuse to be a jerk, be mean, or be a blamer.  If you do something wrong – own it, fix it, move forward.

Maturity is not only knowing the right thing to do, but doing it even when know one is looking and even though you would rather blame others.
