    I firmly accept responsibility

    for my own actions regardless if they are good or bad. When I say or do something that is unacceptable or hurtful to another, I will reach out and apologize to that person, set the record right, and ask for that person's forgiveness. Yes, I am a Christian and have been for...

    The world owes me nothing.

    I take full responsibility for my role in life and I understand that it isn't always easy or fair.

    I am the sole bread winner in my home.

    At work they keep adding to my duties that must be completed daily. I dont know if I have started having an anxiety disorder but with the last addition to my work load I have been feeling extremely job scared. At almost fifty years old I cant continue to feel this way everyday...

    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...

    Still, I'm not responsible

    for the misinterpretations or misgivings of others. ...and I'm not responsible for those who wounded my soul. They can take that up with Divine Spirit. I will tell the truth and will continue to respect the integrity that comes with being honest. I will keep tuning in to...

    Once my cousin and I threw rocks into our

    neighbors pool. He came over and asked about it since those rocks were found in our backyard. She told me to deny it but I couldn't. I told him I had done it and so had she so we went over to their house and fetched all the rocks. He was really nice about it but I have felt...

    I take full responsibility

    for the people I have hurt! Guilt and shame have cluttered my mind and heart. I'm slowly re-learning to love myself again and it feels great :-)

    I thought I was doing the right thing.

    I always thought by helping correct grammar on papers for international students, I was levelling the playing field for them. But, by doing so, for one person, I realized that maybe I was hurting them, after all. They're right, I really am too naive and idealistic for my own...

    Great change brings palpable discomfort.

    One thing I have learned in my half century

    plus one on this planet is that I am more than willing to take responsibility for my actions. They were mine. How could I not? Oh sure there were external factors, circumstances that factored in. There always are. But in the end, the decisions, be they good or bad, were mine.It...

    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.

    My parents still spank.

    If I screw up and the punishment calls for a spanking, then yes I'm going to man up and take it. It doesn't matter what the punishment is, if I screw up, I will man up and take it.

    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...

    When you've been raped,

    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...

    I often use the phrase"actions speak louder
