I tell my children this all the time. "When something is wrong in your life. Finding someone other than yourself to be "At Fault" will never benefit you.
Always strive to find what you can do differently. This is where you gain power."
It is just truth. If you ever truly can find nothing you can do in your life differently to get better results, you win. You are a powerless victim. No fualt can be assigned to you. Nothing you could ever do to change things.
You want to treat the people like your children. Still a nanny state.
