We alone choose

Everything choice has a consequence and we alone are responsible for all our choices in life.

The thing is we have been conditioned to blame others for the outcomes of our choices and then create a victim story.

If we accept our choices have consequences, and that we alone are accountable, then life becomes better. Victimhood only causes us, and others, suffering.

Others and their struggles

When we come across others that do not respond to us how we might like or they lash out for no apparent reason, it might not always be obvious, but they may be struggling in life with issues and challenges.

Challenges within often manifest into reactions that cause an outpouring of our struggles onto others. It isn’t anything another has done, it’s just we choose to lash out on them.

People need our compassion, empathy and understanding first, not our judgement, criticism or reaction.
