    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...

    I really haven't in the past

    but I think it is time I start. I take a lot of things for granted and can be kind of self centered at times.

    Make someone smile whenever you can,

    you never know how much of a difference you could be making in their life at that moment.

    I was on EP last year

    and met a real nice guy. We had a great on line relationship for over six months. I told him at the time I wasn't looking for a physical encounter and I am still not ready for a one (that's another long story why). He tried so hard and was so nice to me it was the best time of...

    I'm not afraid to say I did it.

    Because more than likely I only made a mistake which means that I am growing. Otherwise it wouldn't be something detestable because I try my best to live a trustworthy life.

    Ooops, I did it again!

    (no relation to Ms Spears song) But there's nothing un-natural about having 'him' again. A weakness we both possess.

    I feel nowadays kids are being raised to be

    legitimate tattle tails and NEVER owe up to what they did. Blaming someone influenced you to do something, or made you react is the weakest thing. These kids who are drug addicts at the age of 17 for example, will always blame their friends or the group and never sit and admit...

    Is there such thing as doing this too much I

    wonder.. I tend to always look at myself and how I responsible for my life vs circumstances or other people. I figure because I can only control me, not anything else.

    You live, you learn. We all make mistakes.

    We do things in retrospect that we might have done differently. But it happens. I think it's a big part of being a respectful person accepting the consequences for choices. I'm not proud of everything I have done or said but I have to own that they were my choices. :) x

    I take full responsibility

    for my own actions and the person that I am. If I don't apologise for "hurting your feelings" it's because I don't see why I should- especially when you want to argue "in public" and act like a petulant child. Some people need to get over their ego and grow the hell up.

    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...

    I find it very odd how often people blame "the

    world", "fate" or "God", about their stumbles or their "luck". Giving up on explaining something to yourself, and accepting it to be mysterious, when really, most often, it simply isn't. I can trace each of my problems, and successes, back to either myself, or my family. I can...

    We all are humans and we all make mistakes.

    Personally, I think there is a huge line between doing wrong without intention and intentionally knowing something is wrong and doing it anyway. I do take responsability for my actions, and I learn this at a very young age. I am human, I make mistakes, but I will never do you...

    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.

    Before taking responsibly

    for ones actions I believe one must accept and take responsibility for ones thoughts. A little less controllable than actions, and perhaps even more important because of this?
