Fault vs. Responsibility, do you know the difference?
Taking Responsibility does not mean condoning behavior nor does it equal admission.
Owning your part of the play (whether that is your own behavior within a relationship/situation or your response to toxic behavior against you), is where you uncover POWER in life.
The more you look for areas where you can own your emotions, actions, inactions, avoidance, and truth, the more empowered you will become.
This is applicable in EVERY area of your life: health, career, relationships, your past.
Where have you been caught up in fault-finding and blame-focused behaviors?
Pay attention every time the thought crosses your mind, “Well, it’s not my fault…” and actively shift your thoughts to “In this situation, what is/was my responsibility and where did I fail to step up?”
This will not only shift your focus from outside your realm of control to where you have power, but it will inevitably reshape your life, setting you up to not give a f*ck about all the meaningless sh*t that keeps you distracted from what really matters: self-discovery, inner peace and fulfillment!
