We manufacture our own pain

There are places in the world where children starve and die. I tell myself, surely they aren't responsible. They can't be. They were born innocent. The ones who make it to adulthood - fortunate or not? They can't be responsible either.

But here in America, have you noticed how we stay in the same situations? We have so much freedom we can do anything we want. We can move on. We can avoid painful relationships. And yet we just stick ourselves right back in the big middle of a painful situation. Are we a bunch of masochists?

I do know one thing. We don't like taking responsibility for our own actions. We like to blame other people, places, things. I don't know much, but I do know that.

I really admire people who will take responsibility. I'm working on it! Always working on it. But those are the people I look to when I'm troubled. Those are the people who give me strength.
