Here’s a good quote about adults who fail to take responsibility in their lives. Pay attention to the last paragraph – it’s telling.
“Some people are good at being responsible adults. They make conscious, informed decisions about their lives and as a result are confident, secure and productive.
Some people prefer to abdicate their personal responsibility, leaving it up to others to take on the adult role in their lives.
Some of these individuals are holding on to their young-child identity, hoping to compensate for the care that was lacking in their early life and not understanding that this can’t be done.”
