"Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return" - Galatians 6:7
There are some who constantly complain about their circumstances, so much so that they don't do anything about their circumstances and believe that they're a so-called victim of life. And this attitude only leads to complacency, misery, and apathy.
But what they don't seem to realize is that they're responsible, as one can only ever be responsible. We can't not be responsible because by not being responsible, we're really responsible for not taking responsibility. So, we can only ever be responsible. And by being responsible, they have done what they have done to themselves.
Now, some might have a problem with this, arguing how the economy collapsed, or how they weren't born in a nice family home, or that their religion prevents them from doing what they want to do in life, or something like that. But here is another way to look at it, referencing the above quote:
"What you reap is what you've sown."
The reason why you're living the life that you're living now is because you've done what you've done.
If you're reaping a miserable life, you've sown a miserable life.
If you're reaping a fulfilling life, you've sown a fulfilling life.
It's not about whether you are lucky or not. It's about what you do. It's about what you create.
"Man is nothing other than his own project. He exists only to the extent that he realizes himself, therefore he is nothing more than the sum of his actions, nothing more than his life." -
Jean Paul Satre
And so, anyone who's complaining about their circumstances is putting it on themselves since complaining is what they're doing.
