Responsibility is a difficult thing to learn.
One of the primary ways to develop a well developed psychology is learning to expand the bounds of our perceived responsibilities.
We alone are responsible for everything that happens to us, or rather, how we react to what happens to us.
The more narrow we perceive our responsibilities, the more we are a victim and suffer.
The more broadly we perceive our responsibilities, the more empowerment, the more joy to act in ways that alter situations in our favor.
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but few think of changing themselves.
