Q.

If you can not prove yourself a puritan, do you try to seek some fault in me to avoid what has befallen you?

I don't think 'Puritan' is with a straight forward meaning. We find people in all walks of life claiming puritan status for themselves in their saying and deeds. However the truth of the matter is that they are trying to impose upon others, their personal way of thinking and nothing else.
No body is a puritan except a child, who knows not whether his/her existence involves any puritanical elements or is devoid of them.

I dont want to be a puritan as defined by somebody. I only want to be true and authentic.
A person not worried about his own faults doesn't seek to fault in others! For he has no purpose to!

I dont make any effort to prove myself as puritan because I know that I am not devoid of any faults and perfect. Also, I generally never indulge in character assasination of another person. My approach has always been to find the good qualities of another human being.

Most people do that. But i don't. According to Kabir we tend to find fault with someone else for our situations and circumstances. Our "I", the ego, always tries to put blame on others.
He has said, Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye
Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye
(I searched for the crooked, met not a single one
When searched myself, "I" found the crooked one)
