It is all a question of you or them.

You can blame them.

The politicians, the unions, the large corporates, the neighbours, the boss, the weather or any other ‘them’.

Or you can choose to say it’s me, I make all the choices here.

I can do something rather than wait for them.

It’s only them if you want a get out clause, otherwise, enjoy it being you.

You can only have the life that matters and will make a difference if you accept it is you.
