When it comes to responsibility, we can apportion our baggage and discontentment to the events of our past where family is concerned, but that doesn’t help, because we still have to function in the present. Instead, we must take responsibility for ourselves.
By the time we’re adults, it’s likely we’ve already stacked up a list of wrongs, assigning blame, but not taking responsibility for how we could have contributed to a more positive outcome. Having always tried to please others, I have now come to the conclusion that we must take responsibility and do what’s right for us, regardless of what’s gone before us.
When it comes to family, resentments, problems and injustices will sometimes surface, it’s the nature of families; the consequences of which may mean we will drift apart. If that is the case, it’s always best to try to sort out any differences.
