    Inspiration

    I enjoy Sunday mornings, when the rest of my family is still asleep, and I can have some quiet 'me' time. I make some coffee, and settle down with EP.  I read some, I comment some, I talk to some friends, and if it's a good day, I get to laugh. This particular story is...

    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 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.

    Nobody is perfect but

    when I make a mistake I owe up to the mistake. I do not like people that can not accept responsibility for stuff they do and the consequences of those actions.

    I have helped my Bengali People with Job

    We must all do this, perhaps

    if we did there would be more justice in the world. The responsibility of government is fair and legal treatment of the citizens, before all others, including minority interests and immigrants.

    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...

    I do, but the truth is I think that

    as people we can have blind-spots about ourselves and therefore sometimes a tendency to blame others. I think it takes a lot of courage to take full responsibility. It's something I'm working on, and have been working on for some time. I, probably like anyone if we're honest, am...

    sure there may have been peer pressure

    or alcohol involved but no one made me drink it, no one made me do it. it was me and me alone that made the choices i just hope that anyone harmed can forgive me. leaving without putting the seat down was just thoughtless of me

    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...

    Most of the time I do accept responsibility

    for my own actions. However if something might reflect badly on me I just lie about it and avoid taking responsibility for it.

    I'm 28, and I accept responsibility

    for my own actions, but that seems uncommon to me. In the last couple of years I've done everything I can for those I care for and they have ruined my life. I don't blame them, because I chose to help, but I does hurt to find out your all alone.

    Why wouldn't I? That's a cop-out!

    I long ago realised that everything I do has a knock-on effect on something or someone else. It's the law of physics. A butterfly flaps its wings in Brazil, and as a result we have a rain shower in Scotland! Maybe a bit extreme, but the general idea's the same. So now, with that...

    past year. I have suffered from depression for most of my life. I regretfully say that I'm a cutter. I can't help but use that blade. I don't know how to hide it from my parents.

    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...

    If I do or take something wrong

    or belive I am in the wrong I for sure take the responsibilty for my own actions. I have hurt my bestfriend really badly and I cannot forgive my self for it but when I talked to her and all I told her it was all me and my fault so I took the responsibilty for everything.

    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...
