"No, because the person who feels that way is not taking personal accountability for their own actions."
Yeah... we see, time and time again on these boards...
"I haven't been to the gym because my friend won't go with me"
"I ate junk because my husband ate some"
" I was out with friends and I had too much to drink because they did"
"Someone brought donuts into the office... and I just HAD to have two!"
Personally accountability is severely lacking!

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."
~ Art Turock
"We have a saying in Tibet: If a problem can be solved, there is no use worrying about it. If it can't be solved, worrying will do no good."
