I Accept Responsibility For My Own Actions

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 46,572 People

    I may not always do this at first,

    but I certainly do after I have time to think about a situation. I believe honesty is important for everyone and I wish more people were honest and responsible.

    I never really made really big mistakes

    until I started dating my now husband. While dating, I practically sacrificed my soul and gave him all of my savings out of pity, lodgings, and a portion of my body without sex, and the last two things I did not even believe in. But I was desperate for love in my life and...

    And because of this, I am able to move on with

    my life and better myself. For so long, I thought taking responsibility for faults and mistakes made me appear stupid. It wasn't until I became older that I realized accepting responsibility shows strength, honesty, and initiative to do better. I am not ashamed of who I am, what...

    People tell me I'm going to get fat.

    And people tell me I'm going to make it harder for everyone including myself. But at this point i'm willing to take that responsibility. There are ways to be fat and healthy and ways to be active and productive. And being turned down for a job or health care because of your...

    The world owes me nothing.

    I take full responsibility for my role in life and I understand that it isn't always easy or fair.

    Just when you think you can lay something to

    Who I was is bleeding out

    and is nearly dead, and due to the fact very few knew him I doubt he will be missed. Some people just can't let go. In the end though he was right, he was strong enough to win but not strong enought to live throught it. I hope his sacrifice is not in vain, maybe I'll one day...

    A Small Insight Into Satanism

    I am posting this only as an "eye-opener" to Satanism. Many people tend to think that a Satanist "worships the Devil" and is evil, this is not true and if you take the time to read our Statements and Rules, I am sure you will discover that we are not Black or Red creatures with...

    I am not a fan of asking people to do things

    for me. So usually, I do things for myself. If I managed to phuck up my food, that is because I didnt cook it well. Or maybe I cooked it too much. When I overshaved my eyebrows, I didnt blame the mirror. I sorta of blamed my eyesight though. If I didnt wake up early, I do not...

    At first, I may not see myself

    as wrong; however, when I think about it, I can usually see how I came across as rude, mean, etc. and I will own up to it. I hope that brings me respect from other people instead of shame, although it doesn't always work that way.

    I am the sum of all my thoughts,

    my deeds and my actions. Good, bad and otherwise. I arrived at where I am today because of them. It took me some time to mature and realize that this is true. ..... I alone am responsible for what has transpired in my life, and I accept that.

    Principally, I believe

    that it is important to be honest with oneself; doing that, is the first step in accepting responsibility. However, the downfall is the guilt that follows and how depending on the severity of your actions, you must live with and acknowledge.
