Just because we have a “reason” for saying something, doing something, or acting a certain way, doesn’t mean it’s right.
It’s easy to make excuses for ourselves, based on legitimate issues.
Current circumstances and struggles.
The list goes on.
Example: “I have a short temper because my father was really strict and aggressive.”
The inverse to that… When someone does something, says something, or acts a certain way, doesn’t mean they ARE that way.
Underlying factors influence all of us.
It’s important to remember that we are always responsible for what happens to us, how we act, and the decisions we make.
That includes, in response to others, and in spite of our “reasons.”
Go forth and be awesome! 😎
