My partner and I were talking last night. This time about the responsibility that everyone has to better themselves. We both debated about it, but we agreed that for most people, it is a choice, and they are to blame at the end of the day for not taking responsibility for their life and their trajectory. That if they do not do what is right- and start themselves down the path to self-betterment, then they are to blame. But what we debated is the existence of those who cannot get started down this path themselves. My partner believed that this group is small, but I believe it is a bit larger than that. I think it is a privilege to be able to look oneself in the mirror and survive, without help. And while some people have the capacity to help themselves, I think the potential hardship of this path is a strong deterrent for a lot of people. But he has a point in that, even if it is hard, they are morally obligated to do it, because it is the right thing to do. But I am curious if that is a privileged way to think. Do I only think of moral obligations as someone who has not had horrible hardships in my life? All this is to avoid the declaration that I came here to make. It is time I start taking full responsibility for everything I am. My body, my temple needs care, it is not as I would like it to be. I would like for it to be more active and strong. I have a job now- I need to figure out my finanaces so that i can start saving money. There is a life I would like to be living- and the only thing holding me back from living that life is in fact, me. I am the one holding me back. I deprive myself of living my dreams.
