I am only responsible for my own words and actions– that’s what I learned today
It’s 2 : 36 PM on day 765 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to stretch my hamstrings, brush my teeth, practice sitting up straight to strengthen my core muscles, practice typing with both hands, work, publish my Disability of the Day feature, feed myself a peanut butter sandwich and apple for breakfast and watch TV.
This morning I woke up with an epiphany I am only responsible for my own life the only person I control is me all my life I’ve felt guilty about things that didn’t happen, I’ve felt guilty about things that did happen, I felt guilty about things that could have happened differently… I felt guilty about everything looking back now I realize how ridiculous I was being because most of the things I felt guilty about were things I had no control over from now onwards I’m just going to live happily and let other people feel guilty (or not) about the things they did or didn’t do. Do you tend to take responsibility for other people’s words and actions?
