I hear so many people say that they are grateful for people in their lives that hold them accountable. I have come to understand and believe that accountability for me has to be an inside job. If I cant be accountable to myself and to God, chances are that a 3rd party trying to hold me accountable is not going to end well. I can appreciate that some people desire having people in their lives that will do this. If I'm not in a place where I'm accountable to God or to myself, there is very little chance that I will be willing to allow your opinions or comments to hold any weight. The reason is that If that is the case I'm probably not spiritually fit to begin with, and my denial will be running fast and furiously. I do however appreciate the friends I have that are willing to tell me the truth, even when its hard to hear and uncomfortable. They dont judge, but on the other hand they don't co-sign by B.S. either. They don't invite themselves to my pity parties, nor do they care to attend when I send them an invitation. These are thoughts based on my experience.
