Hello, and welcome to my website and blog! From time to time I will post thoughts, notions and ideas which I think you may find useful or at least thought provoking. People sometimes say “I need to be responsible and own what I do.” Yes, that seems right a lot of the time. But it needs to be sincere. Many of us wince when a public figure after doing something wrong, or really, really wrong piously says “I take full responsibility” and you just know that they do not! But in our interpersonal relationships we also need to let others be responsible as well as keep our own house in order and sometimes we need to “own it a little less.” Give the other party the room to own their part and not feel like we always have to have control.
