Taking responsibility means being able to say “my bad” when things don’t turn out well and not keep pretending it’s someone else’s fault. Say you didn’t do something you were supposed to do and the consequences were dire. You don’t say, well, you kept me up last night. Or you did this so I forgot that. You just get to the what happened and find a solution. It’s okay to make mistakes. Not so great to deflect blame.
Taking responsibility is a super important part of recovery.
