Self-responsibility is one of the concepts generally found amongst those that self-identify as Pagan. It is encoded into the 'Craft or modern Pagan Witchcraft and recognized obviously as one of the core beliefs within the Religion of Wicca.
An interesting discussion came up within my Tradition recently. Someone was complaining that someone else kept making her so angry all the time and that there was nothing she could do about it. When it was pointed out that she was the 'self' responsible for choosing to become angry, her reply was that self-responsibility was only about actions and decisions not emotions.
I know how I weighed in on that observation but let me ask those here. Do you think that being self-responsible includes one's emotions as well as one's actions and decisions?
