When I first started writing for my site, I wrote a blog asking myself why we pleased others. Now I believe we must do what’s right for us. The buck stops with us.
No one else in our lives will and can put our lives back on track, we must also do it for ourselves. Dig deep, search your sole and you’ll find the answers as to why your life has turned out the way it has.
We apportion a lot of what happens in our lives on our past and that’s true, particularly where parents and siblings are concerned. We tend to stock up a list of faults or problems by the time were adults, but never take responsibility on how we can contribute to a more positive outcome, beyond those times.
On occasions, we may think we’ve walked away with our characters intact, but that’s often not the case. Resentments, problems and injustices will always begin to surface around our parents and siblings and the consequence of that is that we will drift apart.
As hard as it is, as the adult we must take responsibility and control back so that we can begin to build new bridges, get ourselves back on track and so that we bring harmony and peace back into our lives. Without taking responsibility we will always look to and continue to blame others. I didn’t have any choices growing up, so turning things around came late for me.
It was only when I started to take control back that I understood how and where I needed to make the changes. My Diary is a culmination of my experiences and deciding I needed to take back control on others’ thinking.
I don’t believe any one of us need to stay where we are. Some of us may not have had many choices growing up, but as adults we do have choices. Our choices will take us down the path we want to go. Not always easy, but I believe it can be achieved.
