It is the responsibility of the individual to determine what is right      God will judge us individually not as part of a group, we know right and wrong. We have to take personal responsibility for our own actions, beliefs and followings. There may be factors that directed you towards making a choice, but it is still YOU making the choice, and it is when we accept responsibility for our own deeds and thoughts that we grow as individuals, and advance as enlightened human beings.
      I get so tired of hearing people say they never had a chance because their parents or siblings, neighbors or friends, were such-and-such, you are you, not the people in your life or the past.

You learn from your past and grow beyond it, or you wallow in it, the choice and consequences are yours to chose. You chose to be the person you are. Once you reach a certain point in life, you can make the decisions to continue carrying the burdens of the past around with you, or let them go, and grow beyond them.
     So, it comes down to the fact that you decide the way your going to be, live and act. You are solely responsible for your decisions and actions, own up to them. If you don't know your responsibilities, it's about time you started learning...
