Let’s think of self-responsibility as your ability to respond.
Developing self-responsibility means, rather than repeating your habitual knee-jerk responses, you have a choice.
It’s about catching that moment, that space between stimulus and response, and choosing to respond in ways that facilitate opening communication, understanding and relationships.
When you’re clear about your values, you create personal freedom and choice.
You learn to speak your truth in ways that are clear and assertive so you’re heard and understood.
