Have you ever looked in the mirror and analysed yourself and wondered what you would be like if you were not born into the body you currently reside in or were born into a different time/circumstance?
I have, many a time. In fact I often do, consider if I was in another form, would I be any different as a person than I am now?
I believe that our core person is who we are, our goodness and sense of humanity. But our circumstances shape our outlook and influence our view for whatever reasons. But none the less, our core is who we are and should be.
Do I believe I have a right to blame circumstance upon my actions? No.
I grew up with violence, rape, racism and feeling like an island in the sea. I’m still that island in the sea, because that is who I am. Responsible for myself. I learn to enclose and remember who I am. I disassociate from blame and look to find truth instead.
Do I use those experiences to define the person I could have been, blame all the bad things in life on, excuse myself for being a responsible decent person?
It’s never ok to blame when in essence you are as you grow able to take charge of your person and shape your person to be better than your circumstance.
Those that don’t, allow their paths to narrow and lose their way.
All decisions in life are a choice. Only you can make them, you have to make them, against the tide.
That is how I view life. That is how I am a responsible human.
