A lot of things happen, things go wrong, situations get tough, experiences scar you, your actions fail you, your heart breaks you… A lot of those things aren’t your fault, but they are your responsibility. Responsibility vs fault, you are always responsible for everything going on in your life. Somethings may be your fault and others may not, but you are responsible for how you receive them and how you respond and react to them.
You may experience pain that isn’t your fault but you are responsible to deal with it. You are in control over your life even in moments when it doesn’t feel like it.
Not everyone has the same heart as you, nor thinks the same as you, that’s why different people respond differently to different situations. So be honest with yourself, understand your emotions, ask the hard questions, what made me feel that way? Why did I feel that way? Don’t lie to yourself, it won’t get you anywhere. At least admit your feelings to yourself if not to others. Because life, like love, brings many things, sometimes even pain. You know you, so you know what you want, you know who you want, when you want and where you want. So in a cliché but true advice, “Be true to yourself and follow your heart.”
