    I wrote her a letter.

    I told her how much a loved her but left enough wiggle room to explain my actions if rebuked. But there wasn't much to debate. I loved her. I loved everything about her, except her husband. I dreamed about her. She set me up with her sister. The sister plucked all her eyebrows...

    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 am very accountable

    for my actions. When I have made an error in life, I immediately take corrective actions to remove my mistake. I would never hurt a anyone intentionally but things happen because we are all human.

    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 am In no way perfect.

    .. I have no problem admitting it in anyway. I make mistakes all the time and don't mind apologizing or owning up to it when I have to to. I would like to think it's a very important quality in life to have when you can admit where you are wrong you can learn how to fix it...

    I know that the state of my life today is

    ultimately the direct result of all the decisions I've made in the past. Sure wish I figured that out that sooner.

    I am fully responsible

    for my own actions because I never, ever let some other person to live my life for me. It's as simple as that - for better or worse it's my life, my triumphs, my mistakes and my experience. If I am not responsible for it, then someone else is. Of course, there are things and...

    who verbally and emotionally abuses me. It took me years to really see it and I don't know why I can't leave.

    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...

    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...

    I have messed plenty in my life

    and have never blamed anyone else for what I've done...I am an adult who can accept responsibility all the time and it's a shame that not everyone will accept responsibility for their own actions

    So for whatever reason I was thinking about how

    I made an awfull mistake in my near past.

    . I think I betrayed her trust.. But it wasn't like that, it was an innocent mistake, all I wanted was someone to talk with, anybody.. And now I lost her, just like I keep losing everyone I care about.

    I've always accepted responsibility

    for my own actions since getting pregnant at 16 which was a HUGE reality check! That turned me around and made me into a responsible adult and mother - something I've never regretted. But girls - don't go out and do it just for that reason! The first thing to realise is that for...

    I suffer a little with claustrophobia

    so I always leave my door open when I'm home. The halls are like a hotel, and so you don't get too many strangers roaming around upstairs. I did once get a guy standing watching me while I took a shower once! He was looking for his daughter, who was six doors down from me. I...

    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.

    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 saying from Japan: We put our hair in order
