Episode-2430- The Death of Personal Responsibility — 3 Comments

  1. As some of you know, I’m blind.  I can’t tell you all how many times I’ve had a conversation about personal responsibility that goes something like this.

    “We get to choose to be victims or victors.  While we don’t necessarily get to choose to be victimized, in the end, we choose how to frame our lives.”

    I know that seems really simple, and it is.  It isn’t easy though, and a lot of folks struggle with that choice longer than they need to.

    I didn’t choose to be born blind.  I didn’t choose how my parents raised me.  I didn’t choose how folks in the real world treat me.  I did, however, choose to be victorious in my own life despite my circumstances.  I’m not always as successful as I could be, but as I said, I’ve never put that responsibility on anyone’s shoulders but my own.
