Life doesn’t have to be something that happens to us, but it can be something that we shape and control. Moreso, we cannot control everything that happens to us in life, but we can control how we respond.

We’ve all made mistakes. We get hurt, we hurt ourselves, we hurt other people, then we build walls of defence around ourselves, or indulge in addictions to numb our pain. Life as we know it is tough and it’s tough on everyone. The truth is, we all need to find freedom and healing from our hurts, hang-ups, and habits.

With the recent influx of external events that are entirely out of our control, the only way to take control of our lives is by taking responsibility for our lives.

What does it mean to take responsibility for your lives? It means you come to the realization that you play a part in every situation or experience that happens in your life. Therefore, you also have some degree of responsibility for the outcomes or consequences.-

There are many circumstances that we can control and have a say in. The key to having that control is by taking responsibility.

A lack of taking responsibility for your life shows up in the following ways:

  • Pessimistic thinking, 
  • A victimized mentality, 
  • Frequent arguments, 
  • Indecision, 
  • Stagnancy, and 
  • Codependency 

If you want to create a better quality of life, filled with peace and joy, then you should be mindful of how you approach the way you live your life.

Take responsibility for your life!!!
