Responsibility is what most of us would say in that most areas of our lives we carry out well, maybe we begrudge it but we do it, we pay the bills, the mortgage, the rent, we work, the list is endless. But how many of us actually take responsibility for our emotional well-being? if we have a fight with someone or something happens, that has a negative impact on our lives do we blame other people?
Do you express your needs, thoughts and feelings?
Do you say that their behaviour is unacceptable?
Do you walk away only to bitch about the event or person later?
Do you blame them for the whole of your life?
Initially maybe confronting a situation isn’t the safest or of things to do and maybe going away and licking our wounds is essential, initial moaning of the event or person, but after a while this isn’t beneficial if it is stopping us move forward. After a while we need to work out exactly what has effected us so much and why we have responded in such away.
We’ve all had events that have effected us deeply. We have all had events that we behave one way for a similar event to happen and for us to respond in the opposite way. What is important is we register what is happening, take ownership of our emotions and work through them in a constructive way, asking for help if needed. If we take responsibility for ourselves then we have a greater understanding of ourselves! and when something happens we know that we will not only be able to recognise what is going on but also move forward, instead of the blame game we take emotional responsibility!
