I really didn't want to stoop that low. But I was running out of time, on my phone, in a parking lot, exhausted from a massive day of driving and reaalllllllly not in the mood to write. Alas, I joined the dark side. Such a shameful act of cowardice! Lol, it's silly but hey, it's allowed! I didn't break the rules. Best of all, I didn't break my streak 😀.
Anyway, I made a bunch of excuses above ... But really, they don't mean anything! What do I really want from those excuses ... ? A pat on the back? We all make excuses so we can feel better, right? We make it clear to others what it's like to feel our pain.
Professionals don't make excuses. They may fail or make mistakes, but then they move on, step up and rise above it all. To me, excuses feel like a lie - they are the kind of lie you tell yourself to feel better, but deep down know you could have actually done better, or risen above the challenge.
So in that case, when does making an excuse actually make sense? And is it possible to legitimately feel good about an excuse you make?
