Being responsible for our choices

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Often spoken words from most children: "It isn't my fault." Of course, it is the fault of the teacher, the other child, a sibling, but never their fault. A sign of maturity is taking responsibility for our own choices. No longer do we deny that we made the choice, therefore we choose the consequence. Or do we? Today so many are seen as "victims," therefore no longer responsible for their choices so obviously not responsible for their consequences.
I can eat very little compared to many others without gaining weight. I am not a victim though. It is just a fact that I have to eat less than many others or I will gain weight. It is my choice how much I eat. If I eat more, I will weigh more. I can believe I am a "victim," and not take responsibility for eating more, than weighing more. I can kick and scream that "it is not my fault." Still my eating and my weight is my responsibility.

    You are so right about this--I pretended I was a victim for a really long time, and I no longer feel that way. I can't indulge much without paying the price either, and that is just my reality, and I accept it.
    Thanks!
