|| Psychology behind the Excuses ||

Making Excuses is the simplest and easiest thing to do. The human brain is designed in such a way that it does not want to explore the veiled immeasurable stores of energy. In other words, it limits the human being to an extent and disallows him to extend it further. That is the reason why people love to live in the comfort and afraid of the life struggles. The brain frames the mind, then mind further frames the human and it’s a trap but of comforts.


Specifically, one of the powerful excuses is the excuse of human nature. After ten or twenty attempts, you failed and give up in something. Then the mind exhausts and gives an excuse that it’s human nature. Everyone exhausts after such efforts. So I give up. You have to write a post after returning from work at home, but unfortunately, you get just half an hour late. Then this half-hour highlighted by the super fast mind thus tells you that your body is completely exhausted as you spent half an hour more at work today. But in reality, there’s nothing like that. It’s just an excuse. According to Psychology, when the brain tells you that your body is tired, your body actually starts to feel a little tiredness at that time. There’s still a lot of unused energy remained in your body. But as said earlier, the brain limits you to an extent. Not only in physical energy, the brain uses this strategy in every single field of your life at every single situation. The strategy is enough powerful that it can give excuses to end up your life. The Suicide rates are increasing because the people are losing control over their brain and mind. They have become more likely to give up on tiny issues like breakups, being jobless, and criticism. The interesting thing is that the people never know that they are living in a hallucination created by their own brain. The rationalization actually lodges the person in a bad faith, a faith that is far away from reality. It puts resistance on the real tough phase situations like emotional distress and cognitive dissonance. This leads to procrastination, slothfulness and eventually the cynical hallucination.

However, Psychologists believe that it can be easily overcome by a little meditation and ‘me time’. This strategy can also be used in a positive way by giving an excuse to your brain to use the yet unreached power of it.

“You need an excuse to stop making excuses.”

So how often do you make excuses? And for what do you make excuses?

  1. Excellent post! I couldn’t agree more. I do not make excuses much but when I do I feel terrible about it. Life is SO short and we if keep putting off something by making excuses before we know it our life will end and with that end lots of regrets will be very evident. Thank you for taking the time to write this post!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ
