Sometimes when in the midst of crisis we tend to have our vision clouded under pressure. I am reminded of a story of a man who was critically ill in a hospital bed with his wife at his side.
He looks up from his hospital bed and says to his wife, “You’ve always been with me when I have had trouble. When I lost my shirt in a poor investment, you were there. When I had the car accident, you were with me. When I got fired, you were there. I’ve come to the conclusion that you’re bad luck!”
It is always easy to blame others for things for which we might take responsibility. It takes a person of character to assume his share of blame—especially when it is our burden to bear.
