Accepting Responsibility for your Actions

In order for you to become a fully functioning human being you need to take responsibility for your own actions.  It’s time to stop making excuses and to stop blaming others for your current situation.  You and only you are responsible for what happens to you.

When you take control of your responsibility for yourself, you then control your behaviour, your thought patterns, your actions and non actions.  At some stage you have to stop playing the victim and start being responsible.  Here are some suggestions to help you along the way:

  • Accept that you may have a weakness in a certain area
  • Acknowledge the weakness
  • Write it down
  • Realise the problem/weakness is having an adverse effect on you
  • Try to find why you have this problem (some may need professional assistance) and begin to address it
  • Have courage

An example would be “you feeling insecure”.  Examine your past and present situation to find out what has caused your insecurity.  Then set about changing that situation.  If someone has been unfaithful to you in a past relationship, does that mean everyone you meet will be?  Of course not.  Try to put things into perspective.  Learn to trust yourself and others, everyone has choices in life and some people justdecide not to exercise that choice.  Take your choice and exercise it.
