Excuses are character flaws in us. They are an expression of justification for failure to do something.
People who tend to make excuses view the “reason in their mind” as an uncontrollable event that justifies why they can’t do or complete something.
- Excuses exist to justify, blame, or defend with the intent to absolve oneself of accountability.
- Excuses are never followed by positive, goal-directed, or solution-oriented behavior.
A reason EXPLAINS but stays in control and reroutes someone’s actions.
