It’s not my fault

My sister-in-law and I had a really good laugh today when she said, “sometimes our parents look at us like it’s our fault that we were born”.

I am all for taking personal responsibility, but there are just some things that you have been thrown into that are really not your fault. You should never accept, and never be made to feel guilty for a problem that you did not create, or were party to creating.

If you accept the guilt and try to work through it, you will always be the victim and forever trying to fix it. If however you choose to take responsibility knowing you are not the source of the problem, then you will be able to bring creative and constructive solutions to right the wrongs that preceded you.

Release yourself from any guilty feelings you have laboured under and tap into your inner strength and intrinsic self-worth to push forward in life like the winner that you are.
