“You are free to make choices. You are not free to escape the consequences.”
This is one of the best notes-to-myself that I ever encountered. It reminds me (you) of self-accountability and stops you from putting the blame of your actions to someone or something else. I’ve always prided myself to taking responsibility of my own actions—I think it’s one of my best traits, along with a strong willpower. Hearing "it just happened", "it’s addicting", or whatever to explain a moment that is a result of their (your) actions is just unacceptable and can be incredibly frustrating. Don’t be a pussy and grow a pair.
