I have a certain fondness for a certain A word, a word that society has made so dirty that few people dare to use it in modern society. It actually one of my very favorite words (and actions for that matter). I use it so much that the young people who I mentor say I should get it tattooed on my arm (or maybe my forehead).
People not taking accountability is a pet peeve of mine. This world is made up of too many professional victims that are in situation that they stepped willing into but take not responsibility for why they are they. These people so seldom take accountability for their actions that it almost has become a dirty word. It’s never anyones fault for their actions, life and circumstances just happen to them, they played not role it, no one is accountable for anything anymore. I work with teenagers and I wish I could say that this is a phenomenon that falls mainly on them, but in my private life I know more adult that can’t grasp this concept then the under 18 crew. I understand it is hard for many people to face ugly truths, but it doesn’t make them any less true if we ignore them. It would make this world a better place if we asked ourselves “What role did I play”?
