One of my newly founded pet peeves is people that fail to take accountability for their actions. A.K.A my entire family and half of America today. Everywhere you look people are blaming others for the things they choose to say and do. I am so glad I am not one of those people.
As you may know, I’ve had a bit of a rough year. After losing my papa, a close friend, and a mother figure, I’m a wee bit drained. I’m not quite the same person I was a few months ago and to be honest, I don’t think I’ll ever be. Now my family isn’t one for emotional support. Most of them are selfish, ignorant, or mentally disturbed in some way. But there were always two people in my world that I knew I could always count on. No matter what, when, why, or how. They were always there. They never let me down… That was up until recently.
This morning I received an from one of the people I always thought I could count on. This person stabbed me in the back, as most of my family has. Now they’ve decided to reach out to me to let me know they still love me. However, when I let that person know exactly how I felt, of course, they turned the tables back on me and suddenly it was my fault they acted the way they did. I’m sorry but, I don’t control you. And clearly, you can’t control yourself either. Learn to take some accountability for your actions.
