This is everything.

Taking responsibility for oneself in a relationship is about empowerment, not blame. When we choose to be victims, we give up our power…the decisions are out of our hands. When we take responsibility. we take ahold of our power — the power to change the outcome and get closer to the person we want to be.

I get a lot pushback when I propose this to other women. And that’s okay. They’re just not ready to let go of their ego and can’t yet see how doing so will make them free.

Thank you for telling it like it is.
