Explaining to Justify

explaining  present participle of ex·plain (Verb)

  2. Account for (an action or event) by giving a reason as excuse or justification.

I am pretty good with words.  I use words to convey ideas.  I use words to teach and explain.  But sometimes when I explain, I explain to justify my actions.  Sometimes my explaining are simply excuses.  I tend to make it about me.

It’s a part of my identity that I have recently learned about, and I need to change.  What want to do is give an excuse for why I explain to justify my actions but that is what I’m trying to change – but I already told you that.

How about you?  Does your explaining justify your actions?

One thought on “Explaining to Justify

  1. Someone once said to me, Never Explain, Never Apologise, Just Life your life, as truth to what you believe in as possible. If others have issue with you, that is their bag, be true to yourself. Resistance hides around every corner trying to stop you.

    “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.”
    ― John Wesley
