Making excuses is a defense mechanism in which perceived controversial behaviours or feelings are logically justified and explained in a rational or logical manner in order to avoid any true explanation, and are made consciously tolerable – or even admirable and superior – by plausible means. This process ranges from fully conscious to mostly subconscious. Sometimes we don’t know why are we making excuses. Why are you making excuses? What is it your reason doing that? Sometime we couldn’t control our thought, action because we just can’t. When time to change and I couldn’t coop this situation I try change everything with my thought, attitude and action, sometimes working, sometimes doesn’t. I really don’t know when and how, I just want escape that situation, than I always use my “favourite” excuses = good news is I’m not perfect, bad news is I won’t to be perfect 😉 I can’t say this is helping everytime, just help for me surviving until I find the solution and a reason why am I stuck that’s situation, and when I find the root/s after much easy get out from that. What is it your excuses and how helping for you?
