The responsibilities and pressures that go with being an adult can be challenging that is for sure.
To be a successful adult it is important that we own our life decisions and take responsibility for EVERYTHING we do.
This can be a hard pill to swallow because we often want to blame others for all that we perceive is wrong in our life.
Other people might have a hand in some of our life experiences but ultimately it is our choice to act or react to whatever comes our way. We can blame them and by doing so we are giving away our personal power or we can man/woman up and accept full responsibility for our life.
So, NO more blaming the "Stuff" that happens in our lives on other people. Instead take back your power and own your life, when you do this, this is when the personal growth happens, and we can work towards achieving peace in our life.
When we give our power to others, we are then relying on them to "Fix" our life and we are on their time schedule. Unfortunately, this leaves us in a positive of having no control in our life because we have given that power to others.
Remember, your life, your responsibility. So, stop blaming others for the "Stuff" that happens or has happened in your life and instead, take your power back, you will be happy that you did!
