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, we’ve already stacked up a list of issues assigning blame, but not taking responsibility for dealing with our issues and trying to move forward with our lives. Growing up I was always a people pleaser, now I believe we must take responsibility and do what’s right for us, regardless of what’s gone before us.
When it comes to family, resentments and injustices will always surface, it’s the nature of family, the consequences of which may mean you will drift apart. If that is the case, it is always best to try to sort out any differences.
