We often look to blame others for the things that happen to us. Things can’t ever be our fault. But whatever part others have played in our situation, we cannot absolve ourselves of personal responsibility for the part we have played in it, and the part we can still play.
While there are certainly times when your situation is not your fault, you still have the volition to do what you will about it. You have the power of choice, and with great power comes great responsibility.
While we cannot control what others do and how life happens to us, we can control what we’re going to do about these things. We have volition; we can do whatever we want. Be mindful and careful of how you are using your volition.
