I Accept Responsibility For My Own Actions

    Why wouldn't I? That's a cop-out!

    I long ago realised that everything I do has a knock-on effect on something or someone else. It's the law of physics. A butterfly flaps its wings in Brazil, and as a result we have a rain shower in Scotland! Maybe a bit extreme, but the general idea's the same. So now, with that...

    If it's my fault, it's my fault.

    I hold my hands up and accept what is to come.

    Accept Responsibility, Consequences, Or Both?

    I noticed the "I Accept The Consequences Of My Actions" experience has markedly less members than the "I Accept Responsibility For My Own Actions" experience so I'm here to try and recruit you. Plus we're both bored so I figure why the hell not. The consequences of our actions...

    A couple years back to my freshmen year of

    college, I had a roommate. His girlfriend would come over all the time and stay for hours, and most times she'd bring a friend. One day I was talking with my friends outside the dorm floor. She came over with a friend (one I had never seen before) and, like always, she asked me...

    Today I received a very painfully sad note from

    a friend that felt hurt about a belief I hold true and shared with him. I never intended to share it as an advice. Words have power and I use them with presence, now it is a time for carefully listen and to respect a friend's decision to part from the friendship without...

    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...

    Yes I do. I am an adult.

    I am willing to listen what others have to say, be it good or bad, positive or negative. Responsibility means that I make myself accountable and that I answer to what I am asked. Many here on ep do not like that. Here is one example of a reply in a post about "I am the other...

    If I do or take something wrong

    or belive I am in the wrong I for sure take the responsibilty for my own actions. I have hurt my bestfriend really badly and I cannot forgive my self for it but when I talked to her and all I told her it was all me and my fault so I took the responsibilty for everything.

    I learned this lesson the hard way.

    Silly not to! I'm old enough

    and ugly enough to accept full responsibility for what I do, but I've actually always been like that. Sometimes it's got me into bother, but how else are you going to learn about this life?

    I have made my fair share of bad choices in my

    life. Many things have happened that I had no control over as well. I have recently learned that while bad things happen that we cannot control in any way, what we can control is how we react to these things. It sure isn't easy to change. The hardest thing for me to do isn't...

    When I first met him.

    I fell for him little by little. He was my air that I need to breathe. He was my heart that I wanted to love. He was the man in my dreams that I wanted to come true. He was my all. We were young but we love so strong and so much passion and desire. We was in sync for one...

    As a young 18 year old women,

    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.

    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 am very responsible

    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.

    If I don't take responsibility for my actions or reactions, I become a victim.  If I become a victim, I've given away my power.  I will never willingly give my power away again....
