    The power is not just one face!

    ! I realise. It has many faces, but surely none of them are human. I saw my people’s face change over time. The pain and anger turned into hatred and I could no longer differentiate between my enemy and my people.

    In most cases, I just accept responsibility

    quickly. It's like pulling off a bandage. Painful but once it's over it's done and you move on. If forgiveness isn't in the cards then so be it.

    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...

    I can't see why you wouldn't be?

    They are your actions and every action has an equal and opposite reaction, its simple cause and effect. If I am wrong I will say it because that's what you should do its what is known as having a conscience. If I make a mistake it my mistake, it is not anybody's fault but my...

    One thing that annoys me most is

    when people try to place blame on others for their own actions. No matter how much your past, other people, or other situations have influenced you, you ultimately make your own decisions. By not taking responsibility for your own actions, I feel that you simply promote a cycle...

    It took me almost my entire life to understand

    this concept. I use to run around blaming everyone else for what was happening to me. If they didn't d this, then I wouldn't have done this... I always had an excuse. Now, I realize and truly understand, that it is me, who is responsible for me. My mood, my actions, my...

    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...

    The sad part of accepting responsibility is I

    don't get to blame other people, when my life is not going well. The good part is that when things aren't going well, that if I take responsibility, if I make better choices, things get better, regardless of what other people do or don't do. My happiness is dependent on me, not...

    You must be true to yourself.

    So accepting the responsibility for your actions is an essential aspect of this, honesty. You can only be responsible for your own actions, not his others react in reaction.

    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.

    I am implementing this more

    and putting my ego to the side. Everyone makes mistakes but if you don't take responsibility for it, you're not being honest with yourself or anyone else. I feel that once you accept onus for the things you've done, you can learn from it and continue to do it correctly the next...

    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!

    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...
