It's YOUR Fault

Every man is the architect of his own life. He builds it just the way he wants it. However, after he has built what he wants, he sometimes decides that he doesn't like what he has built and looks for someone or something to blame instead of changing himself.

My favorite line in Shas [maybe]: "Ain hadavar talui ele bee" - It is up ONLY to me [to change], [Avoda Zara 17 - check out the context of the gemara!].

THANK G-D [!!!] there are so many other people in the world. A person can blame his wife for their problems in marriage, his boss for the problems at work, his children for the problems at home, his Rabbi for the problems in the shul - and the list goes on and on.

Sweetest friends - take life into your own hands. Personal responsibility. A sense of achrayus. No more blaming, no more passing the buck. THAT - is the beginning of change.

Love and blessings!
