Responsibility is about understanding our lives without the need to rely or try to please others to do it. And where others have wronged us, we must still take responsibility. No one else can put our lives back on track, we must do that for ourselves.
We apportion a lot of what happens to us on our past and although that happens, particularly around parents and siblings, it doesn’t help because we still have to function, and take responsibility for ourselves.
We tend to stock up a list of wrongs by the time we become adults, but never seem to take responsibility on how we can help contribute to more positive outcomes, beyond those times. We may think we walk away with our characters intact, but sadly that’s not always the case.
Resentments, problems and injustices will always begin to surface around our parents and siblings and a consequence of that is we will drift apart. Blaming our life on others and how our lives turn out really doesn’t help, primarily because it can’t change anything.
We must instead choose to take responsibility and move on with our lives.
