    When I was younger I would blame my parents

    for a lot of things that I went through and I still hold them responsible for some conditions because at the the time I was a kid I could not make a lot of decisions on my own. Now I am grown and I know better. every action has a reaction and I always realize the error of my...

    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...

    I always wonder why people can't think

    before they speak. They hurt other's feelings because of their poor choice of words and even though they don't meant it it deeply lingers inside them forever. How cruel and inconsiderate they are... People like that need to see who you talk to and what they are like through...

    Don't Blame Someone Else

    I take full responsibility for where I am today....In a sexless, loveless, affection-less, marriage. I won't blame him for my 20-years of pain and loneliness because I could have left at any time, and yet I am still here. There are several reasons why I chose to stay over the...

    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.

    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 hate blame culture.

    I decide for myself and I realise

    I was told that I'd regret getting tattoos.

    I don't! I was told I'd regret going out in just my panties (effectively) because of the type of person I'd attract. I don't! I accept I may not make that many good decisions in my life, but I will take responsibility just the same!

    It's so easy to pass the buck,

    point fingers, and shift blame. Instead, all of us should spend more time and energy owning up, accepting consequences, and learning from our mistakes. Accountability is a hallmark of maturity.

    if I don't match the expectation set by myself, when it comes to fulfilling daily mental deadlines at work. So hard that if I start late, I can no longer start it the same day. Unless I take 1-3 hits of weed. That dissolves the blame and very often leads to action. How can I...
