I didn't mean to do it.

I didn't mean to say that.

That's not what I intended.

Have you ever said one of these?

Most likely you have. I have.

I am not here to beat you up. We all make mistakes, and we all need to be free with our forgiveness.

Yet, if you find yourself being caught up in saying these sentences too often, it might be an indicator that we need to do some thinking and self-examination.

“We are dangerous when we are not conscious of our responsibility for how we behave, think, and feel.” Marshall B. Rosenberg

Part of maturing is becoming in tune to our thoughts, feelings, behaviors and how they affect other people.

The danger comes in when we are not conscious of our responsibility, and it hurts other people. 

Our goal at Live On Purpose is to help enrich and save key relationships. Accepting responsibility for our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors goes a long way in enriching relationships.
