Excuses are just a way to justify one’s actions. When one cites excuses, one tries to defend some offensive behavior or some failure to keep a promise. People make excuses to avoid taking responsibility for their actions or when they do not have enough guts to confess their fault. Even when one is not able to achieve our desires, then one puts forth lame excuses and at times, blames circumstances, people etc. for one’ s failure. You will either find a way to reach your goal or an excuse for not being able to make it.
Excuses are the traits of a person who lacks focus to achieve his dreams and is not trustworthy since he is not able to keep his word or stick to his promises. Lame excuses are a way to shun responsibility but they show how weak a person is. An excuse can also be an explanatory note explaining an absence.
