I Accept Responsibility For My Own Actions

SEND TO A FRIEND:

    In my nineteen years,

    I have made more mistakes than most who live to be eighty. I have come to terms with most of them, learned where I can and forgiven where I cannot. I have put on my bravest face when the world crashed around me, and I used my own two hands to rebuild relationships I set ablaze...

    I'm a good driver. Not careful,

    not responsible, but a good driver. Enough to race with guys and win. So I'm overly confident. I sometimes don't pay attention, and I use my phone, constantly. Funny thing - I actually know these are horrible, but I take pride in being able to text, eat and drive all at the same...

    Great change brings palpable discomfort.

    Today, I made the statement to be released from my marital status in the most peaceful and constructive way. In anticipation of a rough ride, still I give thanks: orange light turns green -for hope. There is always a solution for everything, under grace. May things turn out...

    A pretty sure way to make people lose interest

    in you is asking them the right questions - those which will likely make them feel uncomfortable. Many don't like to be accountable and responsible. Many are not as mature as they pretend to be.

    This is where you separate the men from the

    boy's! We live in a world that constantly preaches "it's not my fault"! It's getting rarer and rarer to find adults that take full responsibility for their actions. I don't always make good choices.....sometimes nowadays intentionally!! That does not absolve me from the...

    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.

    I accept accountability

    and responsibility for all of my actions that I commit in life. Yes, I have made mistakes in life but I learn from my mistakes quickly.

    I hate blame culture.

    People that look for excuses as why things have not turned out as they expected. A lot of prejudice and racism I believe comes from this. I always like to take responsibility for myself. Get informed and make a decision based on what I believe. If I make a mistake I will hold my...

    A few years ago, as I got out of my car,

    a big gust of wind blew my door into another car. It took me a while to locate the owner. We exchanged info and I paid for the damage. I got a thank you in the mail saying they could not believe that I didn't just leave while I had the chance. Here are the reasons I did not...

    I do because If no one can make decisions

    for you then you can't blame others when things go wrong. Sure some are manipulative pulling strings use your fear against you but Nothing stops you from snapping ties and move on

    I'm a teenager and while I am,

    don't expect me not to do reckless stuff. But in the end, its always better to think thoroughly before doing anything at all.

    I accept responsibility

    for my own actions regardless of what they are. If and when I have offended others, I will apologize to them and make things right for everyone.

    No, I am not perfect.

    However I do accept responsibility for my actions committed in my life. I have made many mistakes in my life and own up to them and correct them immediately.

    Not to sound self centered,

    conceited or arrogant, a true lady, like myself, always takes responsibility for her actions, and she also owns up to her mistakes and atones for them.

    I do. . And wish others would stop passing the

    buck and accept responsibility for their own actions..and work. This SMART workplace management program, designed to reduce stress, actually causes more stress in the poor sod whom the work is delegated to. Faceplam to that !

    When you've been raped,

    We must reject the idea

    that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Most of the time. I will lie
