Guest Post: Personal Responsibility: Are you a Victim?

By Carolyn R. Owens

Personal Responsibility

There are so many thoughts that come to mind when we talk about the subject of personal responsibility. We often avoid talking about the subject because it’s something we really don’t want to accept about ourselves, the things we don’t won’t to face. However, when you don’t take a look at your own actions and behaviors, you can become a victim of life. So what do we mean by personal responsibility? We have to begin by understanding the definition of responsibility.

 Responsibility is the state or fact of having a duty to deal with something or of having control over someone. A lot of times we don’t want to take it on, we don’t want to deal with certain things that are happening in our lives. Taking it a little further, personal responsibility is the idea that human beings choose, instigate, or otherwise cause their own actions. This is the responsibility we have for ourselves.
