We want things to stop that are creating us harm. We are calling for responsibility and the information is alarming. We want people to account for the wrong that they do, things that are hurting me and you.
We Need To Take Responsibility! What is accepting personal responsibility?
We are solely responsible for the choices in our lives. What we choose to feel or think, the direction we choose for our life, how our choices affect our life.
Pointing the finger of responsibility back to yourself and away from others when you are discussing consequences of your actions.
Don’t depend on others to make you feel good about yourself, don’t feel sorry for the “bum deal” you have been handed take hold of your life and give it direction and reason. Protect and nurture your health and emotional well being.
Take inventory of your strengths,abilities,talents and positive points,develop positive self-talk,let go of blame and anger toward those in your past. Work out anger,hostility,depression over past hurts,pains,abuse and mistreatment.
Comments From People That DO NOT ACCEPT Personal Responsibility:
Its not my fault I am the way I am I never asked to be born. I want you to fix me.Life is unfair!
There is no sense in trying to take control of my life. Why go on, I see no use in it.
You can’t help me, nobody can help me. I’m useless and a failure.
There is no way I’ll ever be able to handle this. My parents made me what I am today!
No matter how hard I work, I will never get ahead.
STAY POSITIVE WITH YOUR THINKING….. GIVE VALUE TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS
THE JUNK BOX; By Edgar A. Guest
My father often used to say: “My boy don’t throw a thing away” You’ll find a use for it someday.”
So in a box he stored up things, bent nails, old washers, pipes and rings, and bolts and nuts and rusty springs. Despite each blemish and each flaw, some use for everything he saw with things material, this was law.
And often when he’d work to do, he searched the junk box through and through and found old stuff as good as new. And I have often thought since then that father did the same with men, he knew he’d need their help again.
It seems to me he understood that men, as well as iron and wood, may broken be and still be good. Despite the vices he’d display he never threw a man away, but kept him for another day.
A human junk box is this earth and into it we’re tossed at birth, to wait the day we’ll be of worth. Though bent and twisted, weak of will, and full of flaws and lacking skills,some service each can render still.
This poem is a great reminder that fingers we should not point. We all have issues that have pushed us out of joint. We all want acceptance to belong and be heard, we don’t always want others to know the struggles we have endured. They have formed us into what we are, lets show patience with one another so that together we can go far.
