Fault Versus Responsibility

I just heard an amazing speech given by Will Smith and I wanted to share here. It resonated with me, so I thought maybe it will resonate with you as well.

There is a clear distinction to make between fault and responsibility.

It’s not your fault if you were sexually molested or emotionally abused as a kid. But it is your responsibility to make sure you figure out how to overcome the trauma as an adult.

It is not your  fault if someone cheated on you or left you. But it’s your responsibility to mend your heart and get over the situation.

It’s not your fault if you got fired, but again it’s your responsibility to figure out how you’re going to make ends meet.

It’s not your fault if you are sick, but it is your responsibility to heal and get better.

Any circumstance of misfortune is not your fault. However, it’s your responsibility to turn that misfortune into fortune.


Infinite love, health, healing, wealth, success, happiness, awareness, peace and wisdom your way
