You are responsible for it.

“You are responsible for your lives; Whatever decision you make in this room determines whether you live or die”.

Extracted from a movie

This quote touched me last night while watching a military movie based on a true-life story titled “13 hours: The secret soldiers of Benghazi”.

This movie is about an elite security team that went to battle to save some US consulate personnel who were trapped in Libya. I wouldn't go on to narrate the movie but if you are a lover of action movies, then this is for you.

I only extracted the quote as I got fascinated by it. Many of us, our decisions have brought us to this level we are, whether in a good or bad way. We won't hold anyone responsible for our misfortunes. So, you are the controller of your life and if anything should happen, you don't have the right to blame anyone for it.

I read a post on Hive yesterday and the author explained how a friend of his blamed his elder sister for the challenges he is going through. According to him, the friend said if his sister had chosen the decision in the past, he wouldn't be where he is today.

I love how the author replied to him. The truth is, no one is responsible for how we do or fare in life. Being siblings and from the same blood doesn't guarantee that your success will come from them. We all have our lives to live and two siblings can never be the same.

Your fate can never be depended on the choice someone makes because we all are fighting for our lives and you have got to take action to be better.

I wonder why some people are so relaxed because they see their family excelling and they think they would help them and they don't have to worry about becoming rich. We owe no one anything.

We all came into this world differently and surely, we won't leave at the same time, even if death takes two people at the same time and minute. Where you go is different from where he or she goes.

Don't rely too much on people but face your life by yourself. Though people will help us along the way, that doesn't make you blame anyone for your misfortune or solely rely on them. Just as the other person decides to better his life, so do you.

If you are working under someone, it doesn't give you the right to claim that your boss or employer should make you succeed because if you don't make decisions to progress even at your place of work, you will lose guard unexpectedly.

We all are fighting for our lives and it is until there is danger ahead of us, that we would realize everyone is trying to save their lives. As they say "run for your lives".

Every decision we have made in the past brought us to where we are today and whatsoever decision you make now, will determine your future. So, don't think someone else would decide how you live or where you go to. Keep reminding yourself that you owe no one and no one owes you. Life is made for every individual to run their race.

The beauty of life is that the sky is so big and spacious enough for everyone and the sun up in the sky is enough to dry all our clothes, we just have to do what fits us and what our abilities can carry us.

A father's wealth will never make his son rich because some plans are made to happen unexpectedly and before you know it, everything has disappeared right in your front. Don't rely on your parent's riches and don't expect too much from them. Life can shock everyone when we least expected it. No one knows tomorrow, it can't be predicted.

Your race is different from mine. What I am pursuing isn't the same as yours and so, the decisions we make relating to our career or path will be different. Don't blame me if you aren't doing well, take responsibility for every action you take. Take the blames yourself and work to improve where you made mistake.

Regret is the most painful repercussion that would happen to anyone and it could make you commit suicide if you don't define your path now. The worst is that it will make you see yourself as worthless and a fool but there is always another chance to make corrections.

We all are in this together. I am not exempted from everything I am saying here and I believe we all are trying to make the best for ourselves. So, coming here to encourage you doesn't make me exclude myself from learning too. I will never blame you if I make mistakes, and neither will you blame me.

Let's learn to take responsibility and accept the blames but that shouldn't stop us from standing up to make another decision at this time, we should carefully scrutinize our past errors and try to erase those mistakes, not forgetting to learn from them to give us the hint on how to make the right decision. If you must know, we all have a second chance and another chance until we give up.

Thanks for reading

I strongly believe in this. We should take accountability and responsibility for our dreams and lives. Don't depend on anyone. Don't blame anyone. You do you.

You've said it all, Princess. I use to wonder why someone would blame another person for his/her misfortune which strung up from his/her reluctance to take responsibilities for his/her life. This life is individual life, if one must become successful, taking responsibilities by oneself is highly essential, and one mustn't really on the resources of others because they can fail us when we do not expect.

Humans can fail us but God will never. If God truly want someone to help us, He will do it in an unexpected way. This is why you hear from people that “I just don't know why I am doing this for you”

The best is to always look up to God.

I totally agree with you. We are responsible and no one to blame by our failures and succession in life. We are the captain in our life, we made decisions and not others do. So for those who blame others and make their life more miserable. It is their choice and not because of others work. Being responsible in life makes us grow and this help us more to be better.

Some people have this mentality or “What belongs to my brother also belongs to me and I don't have to take permission to use it” Let's say the brother has given him 99times and he refuses to give him 1 time because he wants to use it for himself now, the entitled brother will just gather people and start talking about how his life would have turned out great if the father hadn't only the elder school brother.

Nobody owes us anything in life to make us better, we are the ones responsible for whatsoever we face.

Disappointment usually comes from expecting too much from people and a lot of people usually rely too much on a close relative who has become successful to also help them to become successful.

They expect to be helped because they are related to that person and when they don't get the help they want, they end up with disappointments and they start blaming their relative for the predicament they are in but in essence, the relative is not mandated to help and can only do so it he really wants to

That is it. You can't blame anyone if they don't help you. If they want to, they will and because they didn't help you, we shouldn't blame them. The truth is if our help is in someone's hand, whether the person want or not, God has His way of working through such person to help us.

After God, we own our lives, we take responsibility of everything that happens in our lives. Blaming others for it isn't the right choice to make.

Not the right choice and way to blame everything on others, we choose ourselves.

This is similar to some people who believes in destiny. Like for them this and that happened as it was destined too. For me? No, what happen are sometimes result of our choices

Maybe he is influenced by the decision he made but he has a choice to do what he wants. Blaming others for the decision he make is wrong. After all he decided on it.

He was wrong to blame his sister for his misfortune, because every single happening in our life depends upon our own actions.

Difficult to understand, but it is so, we are responsible for both the good and the bad and that is when the perspective of things changes, taking action and resolving the situation is the best option

The majority of us don't want to take the blame of any thing we are facing, hence we tend to cast the blame on other people . No one is responsible for anything that we are passing through we have to put it on ourselves to make things to work out right.

I wrote something on whatsapp yesterday "Ajumobi okan taanu..." Being siblings or family doesn't guarantee that they help you or that you should expect them too. It's who God send to you that will help you and if no one does that's not an excuse to fail

This reminds me of the usual yoruba rhymes that say " we shouldn't rely on our parent riches cos it will be in vain ", we are always responsible for every of our action cos we own our life.
