Own your part, even if it’s small

Though past experiences, childhood, faith, and other outside factors could be the cause of certain behaviors, it is up to you to change those behaviors. The blame game only identifies problems but doesn’t fix them. So to those struggling to accept they may have contributed to their divorce when it was their partner who cheated/messed up, Craig admits the part you played in the divorce may have been very small. But there’s still value in owning it. “There is a part of it that you need to look at…to be accountable for. And then you learn from it and move forward.” In fact, you can only own your partner. You can’t change other people.
