One of the very potent lies of Satan is to convince you that your problems are very unique to you and that no one has ever faced same things.
Why does he do this?
So that you will never see a way out and even when someone who can help you is counselling you, all you can think and say is "sir, you don't understand my situation".
Truth is, for every excuse you have why you cannot succeed in any endeavor, there's someone somewhere who has faced similar circumstances (sometimes worse) and still overcame.
Nothing is new under the sun.
When you always make excuses soon you get used to it, it becomes impossible for you to succeed in life because your mind keeps working very hard to design beautiful excuses why you cannot overcome your difficulties whereas, it could have used the same energy and creativity to design an idea of how you can brilliantly handle the same situation and come out of it.
At this stage of being accustomed to giving excuses, it is becomes a deformity of the mind. Because your mind becomes incapacitated unable to profer solutions, because it is already used to accepting failure and creating wonderful explanations for it.
At this stage, the mind is deformed.
What am I saying?
EXCUSES DEFORM THE MIND!
NEVER ENGAGE YOUR MIND IN GIVING YOURSELF OR ANYONE ELSE EXCUSES FOR YOUR FAILURES.
Better to accept you made a mistake, own up and take responsibility for your mistakes rather than give excuses for it or try to blame other people/circumstances.
Physical deformity is not good, but mental deformity is worse.
DON'T DEFORM YOUR MIND WITH EXCUSES
By the way, did you know that the Bible word for EXCUSE-ADDICTED MINDSET is UNBELIEF??
