People are responsible for their actions, aren't they?

Some people simply deny any responsibilty for their actions. They stop at nothing to explain and excuse themselves for the uproars, problems, physical and emotional injuries, consequences and influences they caused.

 

Some people simply forget that responsibilty is not circumstancial it is bound to the results and whatever caused these results:If someone throws a stone verbally or physically and the stone hits another person, who do you  call responsible? The stone for letting someone throw him? Of course not, the stone itself is an object which had no thoughts of its own.

 

Actions are based on thoughts, thoughts are based on the ability to think and decide, decisions, or better choices made, result in actions. Someone threw a stone because he decided to throw the stone and the result of the action is the injury it caused. Someone threw and that someone is responsible for throwing the stone.

 

Now, whatever made our someone, we name him X, throw the stone is completely irrelevant. Everyone is responsible for what they do and what is caused by their actions and thoughts, because actions are based on thoughts. So no matter what surrounding, influence, convictions, beliefs, inner or outer motivators the thrower of stones can name, he is still responsible for throwing the stone because he threw the stone. And he is still repsonsible for the injury, verbaly or physically it may be, because it was his stone that hit and caused it.

 

Denying the resposibility is impossible and inexcusable!

 

There are no excuses for the injury caused, as there are no excuses for throwing the stone.

 

People have to accept their actions and take responsibilty!

 

Lack of acceptance and responsibility results only in 'black imprints left on two lifes'.

    My acquaintance Jess is like this. Every problem she has was because of someone else. Even all of her health problems due to smoking, being very overweight, eating an awful diet, is someone else’s fault.

      Sounds like a person in deep trouble. While there are indeed health problems that are caused by things outside of the patients responsibility, (remember Fukushima, a wrong medication, injury taken) not all health problems are caused by others. I know some people that got lung cancer and of course they are so terribly injust ill, fate was so bad to them for letting them get cancer, people are so terrible for not treating them right, society is responsible for pressuring them to start smoking at a young age, (50 years of smoking a packet a day how could that be their own responsibility – they never had a chance)… terrible thing self-pity takes away all chances a person has to cope and live

        Your entire post is very relevant! Too many people do not accept responsibility for their actions…why? This is taught by their parents [first], when they were children; it’s called “accountability.” This is a MUST in the parent-child teachings…as it permeates mental actions throughout life!

          Indeed it is a topic one comes across often… it is recently discussed in social study journals as well

    It’s important to keep in mind that people are also responsible for what they DON’T do… If you’d like further clarification, I’d be more than willing to explain. All in all, another awesome post from your great philosophia. #staytruthful

      That would then be included in one of my next posts lol… people are responsible for their choices But you can always write your own insight of a subject I wrote about …. thank you

        I may, but I feel like you’ve covered pretty much all of the things I would in my post. And you’re welcome, Yakuki-san. #staytruthful

          Oh, and here I was hoping for more, things I overlooked to complete my picture… don’t feel shy there is more to say on the subject I am sure you have some great ideas…

            You place too much faith in me, Yayuki-san. Your positive energy is always inspiring and uplifting. All I had to add was that little bit of information. It wouldn’t take more than a simple paragraph to further elaborate, but you introduced the topic. I can’t take any credit for it. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not you wish to further explore what I mentioned. #staytruthful

              Hey, don’t give me too much credit all issues I ponder have been pondered a long time before I was born by probably greater minds than mine I can just explore them on my own, and everyone else is allowed and encouraged to do their own thinking and exploring… I doubt that you point of view is little, it is your point and maybe or maybe not important to you… We are not writing a competition, well I am not… I write because a topic captures me and drags me around until I write So Write what you want to write about…

    I grew up with my mom being just like this.

      Some people learn earlier, perhaps because the more you have to understand the more you learn about these things…

      June 22, 2014
      1. victoriaisblond

        Yes, it was really hard for me growing up with a mom like mine.

          Parents have already seen a lot when we enter their lifes, they get us to watch from the start to figure us out, we need to watch them from the start to figure out all the things that made them who they are and look behind that to see them… which job is more difficult?

            I don’t know. But my mom beat me, ignored me for her jobs and her boyfriends. She mostly left me for her mom to raise. But she was wonderful. She gave me things and then took them away. She did that with 3 of my kitties. Even to having one put to sleep without my knowing. She was healthy. She was just blind. I went to school and then came home and she was gone. It was horrible. She was dead. It never seemed she even loved me. But I have forgiven her. I was saying my grandma was wonderful. But my mom took things away from me.

    I cant believe some people deny even if they are wittnessed. Think? Not likely these are people who don’t have thoughts. Yep thete are people like that. :/

    June 22, 2014
    1. yayuki

      some people deny everything… they just believe people don’t see, can’t count to three…

        I know and its amazing how often they get away wiyh it to!!!!

        June 22, 2014
        1. yayuki

          Indeed… pretending to be stupid seems to work because there are always people who except the I didn’t know …

            yep.

              Of course it is futile to always run against walls (the ones in other people’s minds)

              June 22, 2014
            2. mythoughts77

              Yes They do have high walls

              June 22, 2014
            3. yayuki

              by the sheer height they have to know what lies it behind it will be confronted

            4. mythoughts77

              I think these people believe their own lies.

            5. yayuki

              Indeed, I think that these people live in their own definition of truth

              June 22, 2014
        2. mythoughts77

          In their own version of what truth is. I only know one person like that and the true truth caught up with him saddly to say.

          June 22, 2014
          1. yayuki

            The real problem is that people have to be regarded with dedication to the unique situation and individual…

            June 22, 2014
  6. mythoughts77

    Yes indeed. Its alk about values and morals. And how you were brought up. But sometimes that isnt it and the just go astray.

    June 22, 2014
    1. yayuki

      unfortuantely more then can be revealed plays into this… it is frustrating at times to understand motivation and that the motivations claimed is not the motivation at all…

    Hmmm… I might take you up on that offer. There are other things that have my attention at the moment. When the time is right, I may revisit this post for inspiration. Thanks, Yayuki-san. #staytruthful

    ..and reactions…

    July 16, 2014
    1. yayuki

      isn’t every action a reaction

      July 16, 2014
      1. wirelessguru1

        Not necessarily…

        July 16, 2014
        1. yayuki

          hm… name one action that is no reaction to anything

          July 18, 2014
          1. wirelessguru1

            A primal action.

            July 18, 2014
            1. yayuki

              one example

              July 18, 2014
      2. thunderpunch

        that’s really deep….on the face I would have to say: “without an action, they’re cannot be a reaction”….however an action could technically be a reaction….makes me think a bit!

        July 17, 2014
        1. yayuki

          I think at keast every action I can think of right now is a reaction to something else … a bit like perpetuum mobile…

          July 18, 2014
          1. thunderpunch

            Nice perspective.
