Full Description
Back to Top
Owning our stuff (and by “stuff” we mean, emotions, choices, experiences, etc.) means taking responsibility for our lives, choices, and experiences while resisting the temptation to blame others.
We are responsible for ourselves. We can own every aspect of our life and our choices- even those things that we didn’t cause because we can own our reactions.
Why do we blame others? We often blame others as a defense mechanism or because it is easier. We sometimes use blame as an attack on others.
What are we actually accountable for? We aren’t accountable for everything, but we are accountable for ourselves and we can learn how to differentiate.
How can we own our stuff? We can breathe deeply and monitor our physiological responses. We can reframe our experiences mentally as opportunities to learn. We can apologize. Owning our stuff requires consistent communication, as well as keeping things in perspective.
