We are usually told by shrinks that, once we become adults, it’s useless to go on blaming our parents for our current problems. Stop saying: “I didn’t get enough hugs”; “I wasn’t breastfed long enough”; “They didn’t pay any attention to me once my younger siblings were born”; “I was invisible at home”; and so on and so forth. There comes a time when we have to stop all that sh**and take responsibility for our own lives.
Likewise, Presidents shouldn’t waste time and energy putting the blame for all evils on the previous administration. They must have seen it coming during their campaign. Now it’s their turn to try and put things right. We are fed up of listening about the heavy “herencia recibida”, Fernández & Co. It’s high time you all focused on here and now, instead of looking backwards.
