Don’t blame the system

When I was younger, I’d often blame “the system” instead of myself.

I’d say things like:

  • I don’t fit in
  • I don’t like school
  • I don’t want to get a job
  • I don’t need a job to be successful

Recently, I realized how unhealthy of a mindset that was.

My ignorance isn’t a fault of “the system.”

Sure, there may be some injustice in a system. Nothing is perfect.

A much healthier mindset is:

  • How do I improve the system?
  • What needs to change for me to succeed?
  • What disadvantages do I have and how do I overcome them?

Outright rejection doesn’t lead to anything meaningful. Instead, it’s better to question things and carve a new path in the face of uncertainty.

Education coupled with action leads to liberation from any system.
