Turning your back on the world

So I was driving over to a friend's house this weekend and it occurred to me that I had no right to be upset with my friends over our inability to hang out together despite the fact that we lived within a stone's throw of each other. It was the profound thought that all the things I blamed them for as reasons that we couldn't hang out were things that I was also guilty of. It shone new light on the quote "When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world." It started to make more sense, the things we hate most about our environment and others are things that we do not like within ourselves. So in this way by observing and taking note of things that bother me rather than ignoring them I can possibly change things within myself. I would like to apologize to anyone who's name I have taken in vain when actually there was no crime committed against me, it was something within me all along. It also occurred to me that I should apologize, if it initally upset me the things I thought my friends were doing/not doing is it not possible that they feel the same about me? On that note, if you have me or someone else apologize for something unexpected, know that maybe they are improving themselves in some small way.
