    Ever do something and find out later it had

    consequences that were hiding right around the corner? Happens to me all the time - I am always trying new things, adopting new approaches, and sometimes I fail to consider what the consequences of my actions will be. I do, however, accept responsibility for them - and will...

    Yeah, I'm responsible

    for what I say... But never responsible for what you'll understand

    I fully take responsibility

    for my own actions. I hold myself accountable for whatever I do in my life. If I have done something wrong, I will correct it quickly and learn from my mistakes.

    why blame someone or try

    and get out of something you have done, accept the wrongs and start to right them yourself through first accepting what you have done

    Yes I Do!

    There is nothing more infuriating that someone blaming others for their actions.  We all have choices and we all must own up to them.  I am not proud of some of the things I've said and done in my life but what's done is done.  No one twisted my arm or put words into my mouth...

    I'm a relatively fast decision maker

    and I use my inner sense. For the most part, it turned out I'm right but there are few occasions that it was otherwise and I've never blame it on somebody else's action or words and fully take the responsibility of any future consequences.

    Ownership is so important.

    Especially in relationships. It's hard to be with someone that makes a mistake and can't even apologize or accept the fact that they are wrong. Also, taking ownership makes a bad situation neutralize a lot quicker. Bri❤️

    I love accepting and taking responsibility

    for my own actions. This means I have grown up and am and a mature adult. This is more than I can say for so called leaders in our federal government. I wish the President and his Cabinet would do as I have done in my own life.

    I think it all boils down to doing what your

    heart really desire. If you have to listen to others opinion and not take your own chances, blame game happens. It's easier to take responsibility of things you wanted to do, in the first place...not just because someone thinks it's best for you.

    people. They tend to like to think they're right and would rub it in my face. So I tend to destroy their arguments in any way I can....while admitting my faults in a way that makes them look stupid. :)

    I like to think of myself

    as a young adult and try to be responsible for my life. You may or may not agree with my lifestyle, but I don't brake the law. If I've done something wrong I own up to it, no matter the price. I try to learn from my mistakes and learn also from others as well.

    when it comes to accepting responsibility for my own actions. I was reading a story a few minutes ago about a teenage girl pregnant and the boy fails to take responsibility for what got her in that condition. He needs to grow and face the music.

    I am a young adult and I accept responsibility for my own action. The more you accept it the more likely your going to handle the situation more easier plus if you don't accept it, it's going to be very hard to get through situations later on in life.

    There's no point in complaining

    if I do something wrong I admit it to myself and whoever I hurt without hesitation.I'm very conscious of the things I do so I always expect to get back what I give cause I believe in karma and such so when bad karma hits me back ten folds I'm not even mad.
