According to Regina Cates, we live in an egocentric society. Our behavior creates our lives, yet we point the finger at everyone else if life isn’t going as well as we’d hoped. She explains the underlying issue behind this me-first epidemic: most people believe someone else is responsible for their happiness. While we can’t control other people or situations, we do have a choice in how we respond to them. Regina and I discussed real life examples of making those choices, and why shrugging off jerks and setting personal boundaries can help you lead a more meaningful life – and avoid getting sucked into the blame game.
