Character Flaws

When I was a child, my character flaws might have been due to genetic predisposition, my environment, parental mistakes, or to some other factor outside of my control; but now that I am an adult I accept the responsibility for all of my flaws.

Regardless of the origin of a particular character flaw, it is my choice whether or not to fix it; and if I don't fix it, then it is my fault, and no one else's.

Deciding which patterns of behavior are character flaws and which are not is something that one must do for oneself. It is important to keep in mind, however, that if those decisions run contrary to the prevalent opinions of the society in which one lives, then there may be negative consequences to actions based on those decisions.
