How to use cripple in a sentence?

  1. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi:

    Stop blaming others for what you have or don’t have, or for what you feel or don’t feel. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility and perpetuate the problem. Stop giving your power away and start taking responsibility for your life. Blaming is just another sorry excuse, and making excuses is the first step towards failure; you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions. The negativity you bleed out towards others will gradually cripple your own happiness. When you truly feel comfortable with your own imperfections, you won’t feel threatened or offended by the imperfections you see in other people. So stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself. Let the constant growth and improvement in.your own life.keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticize others.
