    Then it's easy.

    Everyone needs to take responsibility for everything that happens to them.

    Next?
    Do you?

    I don't think this is a question that can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no."

    So I'll give an example.

    If I just had a fight with someone I knew and I'm feeling angry or upset, I have to go be alone for a while. And I ask myself why I'm upset. Then the next thing I ask myself is why I am attracting this person into my life. In this case, I would be taking responsibility for the situation, because I know I am the one attacting that situation/person in my life, so yes.

    It's a reflective response though. The next time I am around that person, I have a more proactive way to take responsibility when I'm around them.

    I think if ppl just tried about 10% more to take responsibility for thier life, then it would improve. We don't have to strive for perfect. It's a process. Problem is people don't like to admit they're wrong. Also they don't believe they are the one creating thier own reality by attracting it to themselves.

    The best answer I have come up with so far is compassion.

    Compassion feels right…
    Now the question becomes implementing it on a large scale.

    Now that I could sink my teeth into. What about compassion for others? Would that add a little cheer to the mix?

    What is your underlying motive behind this thread, @Magic Qwan?

    It's the existential crisis, isn't it?
