If you haven't heard about all that's going on with Ashley Madison, then you're probably living under a rock. If you are living under a rock, you might want to stay there. It's probably safer.
I heard something on the news last night that really, REALLY bothered me.
News reports are saying that the hack of the cheating website, Ashley Madison possibly caused two suicides.
Ummmmm, no people...the hack did not cause the suicides. The decisions of these people who used the website and the fact the they got caught caused the suicides.
Really, when did we stop taking responsibility for our actions? Nobody made these people go to Ashley Madison and create an account. Nobody made these people cheat on their spouses. And, no one made these people take their own lives.
Here's a concept (and it's not even a new one): Take responsibility for your actions! It's not
your spouse's fault. It's not your job's fault. It's no one's fault but your own. You might be in a bad marriage. You might be stressed. You might have addictions. But, YOU made the decision to act in a negative manner instead of taking actions to fix what's not working.
Newsflash, there are consequences to your actions. Your actions of self gratification don't just cause heartache and problems within yourself. Your actions affect other people, especially your family.
Just my two cents.
