When you kick a soccer ball inside the house and it breaks your parent’s favorite vase–you have a decision to make.
You can say it was your fault or the soccer balls.
The thing about responsibility is when we decide to take it we also move to the driver’s seat of our lives, regardless of what happens.
There is always an excuse to point to. So what? When bad things happen, we can assume the victim role or learn from the experience. I do not say this to minimize the pain life can throw at us. And perhaps, for the things that can feel unbearable this advice does not apply. For the trivial, however, why let it change your mood?
Just to be alive is work.
