Accepting Responsibility (Not Just Taking It) (BW)

To be responsible is to be emotionally mature (at any age). True to one’s self. Accountable. We all know people (maybe some of us even are they) who shun their responsibilities as early and often as possible. Ironically, accepting responsibility is a great path to real freedom. There’s a lot of lightening up and levity as reward of truly accepting responsibility.

On the other hand, taking responsibility merely out of obligation or blind habit has professional grade self-imposed locks on it, and represents the oppression and imprisonment of being forced against one’s will to do something. Merely taking responsibility has an immature and non-present aura to it.

To do the work toward real freedom is mature and paradoxically can have a lightening effect. Acceptance is not giving up, it’s giving up mindlessness.  — BadWitch
