When you work hard for something, it will pay off. However, if you just take things for granted whether it be your health or relationship, always expect the worst. In addition, you have to remember that if you are facing something worse because of your doing, then you cannot blame anyone. You have to take full responsibility for your actions. Just like in Chris Stapleton’s song “Nobody to Blame.”

About the Song
In the song, the female character is angry with her husband/boyfriend that she comes to the point of throwing everything he owns out of the house. She burns down whatever she can burn or destroy. The man did not do anything about it because he knows that the reason why she is acting that way is that of him. He does not blame her but himself. However, in the song, there was no mentioning of what he did that lead to the woman’s actions. Probably, it is something worse.
