Fate vs Responsibility
The phrase ”I am who I am” implies that we do not evolve in life. But in fact: we are responsible for living our own lives well – there is no other who can take that responsibility.
How do we take responsibility for creating our lives? How do we avoid responsibility? On who/on what do we put the responsibility on, unless we take it ourselves?
Clearly we all have different conditions at different times. Yet we relate to our particular circumstances and take active responsibility to make the best of the situation. In this way we create our own future. If we deny to see our own our roles in forming our future – we might end up feeling like a victim of faith or to other circumstances – like we have no control over our lives.
Responsibility is the ”ability to respond ” to what happens in our lives.
