I know that we are only responsible for what we actually do, not for the ultimate outcome of anything. Of course this isn't a new idea, but it really came through to me a few months ago, and it has given me some peace - the idea that we are only accountable for our own part. There are so many variables that play into any given situation, and most of them are out of our hands.
Why is it so easy to know this, but so hard to live it? Why does blaming ourselves come so naturally?
This is something that I've thought about a lot because I'm always trying to relax my muscles, and WHEN I can remember to "just let it go," it's much easier to do that. And I have less pain.
I suspect a lot of us have the same tendency...am I right?
