“In order to gain wisdom and freedom from your past, you must take responsibility for all the events that have happened in your life. Taking responsibility means being able to say to yourself, “I did that.” There’s a big difference between the world doing things to you and your doing things to yourself. When you take responsibility for the events in your life and for your interpretation of those events, you step out of the world of a child and into the world of an adult. By claiming responsibility for your action and your inaction, you give up the story line of “Why Me?” and turn it into “This happened to me because I needed to learn a lesson. This is part of my journey.”
Debbie Ford, in “The Dark Side of the Light Chasers”
