I want a pass too

Recently in my interactions, I've noticed a common theme with the people that I have been dialoguing with both personally and professionally; the idea that I am not responsible for my life due to my stressors, circumstances or the involvement of other people. As much as it pains me to confront, I think that when we take away our personal responsibility for our choices and their impact, we take away our internal power and when we take away our ability to consider the impact that  horizontal and vertical stressors have had upon an individual and a family, which is why they make the choices they make,  we lose empathy and hope. So as usual, I fall in line with moderation and consideration as a means to the desired end.
