It is known as excuse to the act and result of excuse (that is, list reasons or causes to shed any possible faults, not wanting to do something, free someone from a obligation or responsibility, prevent something harmful from materializing). The excuse, therefore, constitutes a pretext which is used to avoid obligations or excuse any omission.
To cite some examples of use: “The boy presented me with a crazy excuse to justify that he had not done his task, "I don't want any more excuses: keep what you promised or you'll get in trouble", "It's not an excuse, I swear I wanted to call you but my phone had no signal", "Excuse me sir, I had no will to harm you".
This concept, moreover, is often used to symbolize a hidden motivation or that is not considered valid. "U.S invaded Iraq in 2003 with the excuse of looking for chemical weapons that mentioned their own intelligence reports. These weapons never appeared and there are those who argue that the real reason for the invasion was the Will to keep the oil of the Asian country. "
The hit of State they are usually carried out with the excuse of removing an illegitimate government that violates the Constitution . However, these actions always hide other ideological, political or commercial motivations. The excuse, in this way, does not constitute a real motive, but masks another will.
In the field of right, the excuse or exception is a legal justification that the defendant presents with the purpose of rendering void the actions of the person filing the claim (such as the payment of some obligation).
The excuses are something very personal, and it is necessary to clarify that in some cases who commits a error and tries to justify his actions, he does so legitimately, since he really does not believe he has acted irresponsibly or carelessly. However, as with other issues, these stories are lost in a sea of others that are based on lies to evade one's own guilt. Human beings are experts in seeking explanations for our failures that make us victims; We forget that making mistakes is inherent in our species and that our mistakes are precious stones that we find along the way, since they allow us to grow and evolve.
Unfortunately, this attitude is cultivated in us since we were born, through our parents. They commit mistakes, like any human being, and it's healthy that a child notices the mistakes of his elders, to understand from the beginning that Perfection does not exist; however, when he begins to witness excessive justification, a mind is formed in his mind fear of being wrong and an imperative need to hide any He passed false.
This is how we develop, learning to to blame to teachers for our low grades, to the government for our lack of money, to society for our vandalism attitudes and, as nobody can escape their responsibilities, to our parents for any problem that we cannot assign to anyone else. Excuses are like a drug, and people who depend on them don't get what they want, probably because they don't look for what they really need or because they don't have a specific goal.
It is not pleasant to deal with those who justify everything instead of assuming their responsibilities, but it is necessary to understand that there is a root problem that drives them to hide all the time and that this attitude arises from the lack of conformity with one's life. Those who consider that their actions do not represent an error do not feel the need to give explanations or get irritated if someone demands them.
