At the moment, it's all me. In spite of others, actually.

they're all completely my fault, unless I blame my parents for not raising me to be a normal well-adjusted dude. but that wouldn't be fair, as my parents are awesome

the main problems are living at home with no money but that's all down to me doing the PhD and my idea

None of the above. My brain is hardwired a little differently, and that is nobody's fault. BP1 is in my genes, but I can't blame my great-grandfather for it, can I?

No, both my parents were normal. More or less. My great-granddad on the other hand, was a total loonie who did a Kurt Cobain at age 27. These recessive genes can lie dormant for three or four generations.

I hold myself accountable for my own actions, as I would do with anyone else. That's called growing up. If someone does something that affects me in a negative way, it is my duty to rise above it and gain wisdom from it. That's the way I see it.

YOU YOU YOU!!! THE PROBLEM IS YOU!!!!! ALL OF YOU!!! GET OUT!!!

and that's true for your actions, but couldn't the actions of others equally cause you problems?

problem! you're in a wheelchair
reason! drunk driver ran over your legs

question! are the problems in your life your fault?
answer! no

and sure it's your responsibility to make do with what you've been dealt but that doesn't mean that other people can't be at fault for very real problems of yours

If people would take responsibility for their own actions and problems, instead of blaming the universe for everything, they would find out that those problems aren't nearly so insurmountable as they once believed.

I really dont have any problems right now.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 5:21:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Both. One of my problems is anger, but that's mostly because my brother WON'T STOP TAUNTING ME, but also other things, like my grades aren't quite high enough because I don't feel like working. They're pretty high, but I'm capable of doing better.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 5:58:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
everything's my fault
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 1:03:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
generally its a mix... a large amount of my finicail problems are down to my mum but most of my emotional etc. problems are me.... but not helped by others
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 1:22:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't even have many problems but those little ones I have a probably partly my fault and partly those of others. If things you can influence go wrong you may blame yourself but the things you can't change aren't your own fault.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 2:26:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
seriously, most of my problems are purely bad luck.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/23/09 - 2:42:41 PM EST (GMT-5)

Others, but fortunately I have the power to change it, and do.

The problems in my life were not my fault but they were nobody else's fault either.

Which is why most people can't answer "yes" or "no" on this one. Most of our problems are usually caused by random events.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 8/24/09 - 12:33:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mostly me but there is one person who I blame for my social issues...I hope I never find him.

Yup, mine were caused by a condition which I most likely inherited from my birth mother.

Some are my fault, some are others' faults, and some are nobody's fault
