Have you ever considered the word 'because'? How often do you use it and do you use it to give an excuse or do you actually use it to give a valid reason for your decision?
When asked a question & if the answer to the request is 'no' most often people are prone to push for a reason. At this point we often start with 'because', is this because we believe or think that our reasoning should satisfy the other person?
Lets look at a couple of classic phases 'because I said so' or 'because I don't want to or because I don't feel like it'. Are these really valid statements? If we are more prone to speak using these or similar phases how well might the relationships in our life be tracking?
Have we as individuals given the people in our world adequate reason over the years to trust us, as well as our judgements and intelligence in the decision making process, or to believe that we are capable of knowing our limits or do we just use phases as a form of excuses.
If you are reading this, I encourage you from now on to consider the phase that follows 'because'. Giving good reasoning to your decisions especially to the people in your life that matter is important. Solid relationships are built on trust, don't ever let this little word 'because' and the phase that follows be misused.
