I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” ― C.G. Jung
This quote is so powerful and true.
Our personal responsibility is immense to decide on what we focus on, what we do, what we choose.
Life happens, but that doesn’t mean those events have to define you.
Most of us choose to let ourselves being carried away by the events of life.
But we are not our past!
To become a personality, an individual in charge of your own life, you must write your own story.
What happened to you as a kid is just the first sentence of that story.
Your intentions and future actions decide your present character.
It is our personal responsibility to become what we want and we should not shy away from it.
This personal responsibility is scary, but it is challenging.
Yet it is what makes us human beings.
