Take responsibility for your self. Be willing to experience being right and being wrong. Being weak and being strong. And let others have their own space to do the same without pointing out their flaws because it only reflects poorly back on you. Being responsible means you are prepared to do what must be done and being willing to take full credit or blame for your actions, without any excuses.

This is something I take a lot of responsibility for although I always tell people that they are responsible for themselves. It is all a matter of being honest with oneself and leaving people to make their own decisions even if you don’t agree with the decision they are making.

The responsibility of Jack’s job was quite simple. Do not let the young maiden’s of Anna Lee’s Girl Power circle infiltrate the BoysRule GirlsDrool fort made up of a collection of pillows, chairs, tree limbs, and an old lawn mower from Uncle Tim’s garage down the street. Years later, Jack would go on to marry Anna Lee, but for that moment, Jack’s responsibility outweighed his eventual affection.

Responsibility. The word responsibility presents a choice. You can do what you’re supposed to or not. I don’t have responsibilities. I have what I NEED to do.

It is something that should be within all our lives. It helps establish of sense of accountability which is vital to self perception. It also can give one a sense of self worth which in turn make one happy. It is also vital to helping provide for others around you, especially those that you love.

One deep breath. That’s all it took to move out of that hunched position on the floor.
She lay flat on her back, staring at the ceiling, trying to get air to move in and out of her lungs and slow her crazy heart. She clutched at the ends of the carpet, her knuckles turning white with the tight grip, the nailpolish on her nails chipping.

Responsibility is a term which many people are familiar with yet which many do not seem to fully comprehend. At it’s most basic meaning, responsibility means being accountable for one’s actions.
By Dan Patrick on 01.24.2013
The responsibility is all mine. Normally, knowing that I have to take hold of a situation doesn’t scare me, but this time, I have to admit that I am not sure if I can pull this one off. One thing is half settled;another is not even started. This could go either way. I could end up looking like a star, or I could end up looking like the fool that I feel like I am on the inside.

They said it was my responsibility to look after Alan. My responsibility to ensure that he didn’t break into the booze cabinet again. My responsibility to check his breath to see if he had imbibed enough vodka, black rum, and cheap whiskey to make his liver implode in its cavity.
It was my responsibility to take care of him, slap him around, keep him safe. He still died.

I was given a catalogue of dark images to peruse, by hand, they held them for me, one by one, and as asked, I commented on each one, yet disinterested, indifferent, irritated yet obliging, it’s my nature, it tortures me, and then I saw the one, not shapeless, anomalous, formless blackness as were the rest, but more distinct, crystalline almost, and I had no word for it, but it represented a sort of divine absence of the weight of responsibility, and I snatched at the card, but they withdrew it from me
By Miss Alister URL on 01.24.2013
It had been my responsibility. Well, they should have known better than to trust me with the ring for crying out loud. I stood at the sink, my tux sleeves shoved up to my elbows, trying to work my hand down the drain. Why was her finger, and so, the ring, so small?
By annie URL on 01.24.2013
Well with ever person they have some sort of responsibility and there need to act on it. This people now needs to take it up a notch and take the responsibility for our world we have desicrated.
By Houston Johnson on 01.24.2013
There’s a word for you. See I take responsibility for my actions. But I know someone who doesn’t. Or won’t. And everything she wants in life gets handed to her. And I hate to say it, but just once, I want her to fail, just so she knows what it’s like.
She drives me nuts.

Takes courage and discipline. you learn as you grow up. Live and learn with this. It just isnt something you have but something you build throughout life. homework, work, chores, etc. most important quality to have when you first become an adult.

I am not the most responsible person ever well I am morally, but not with my possessions. I worked 5 years on my Pokemon Ruby game then lost it. It was so awesome and I lost it because I’m not responsible.
By Annalise on 01.24.2013
I’m naturally restless; I grew tired of routine
I went on a search for new places to be seen.
I packed up my bags, had my world rearranged
Still everything’s the same, yet everything changed.

Friendship is a responsibility – we all have a responsibility to keep the relationship alive, to look beyond ourselves and ensure that the other person is alright. I realised this whilst reading the Little Prince. “You are responsible, forever, for what you have tamed” said the brown fox to the Little Prince. I am responsible for him.
By Wendy P URL on 01.24.2013
i have a lot i feel but really not as much as many others i wish i knew how to use the little i have. i dont have a job which makes me feel like a bum and i have no accountability to anyone. is there any way to get around life with responsibility?
By kyle on 01.24.2013
there is an ultimate responsibility to oneself. must be responsible for self-love, self worth, self-knowledge, self -righteousness, self- preservation, self-sufficient—the self responsibility being one of the greatest of them all.
By Safon URL on 01.24.2013
You want me to be more responsible? I’ll give you responsibility. Yeah, I get it that freedom comes with responsibility but I’ve been responsible by keeping my life in tact! How much more do you want from me? Responsiblity. Pfft. There’s no way.
By Ashley on 01.24.2013
Something i am not. Something i have lost along the way, something i search for or try to make it be my own reality. what am i if i’m without responsability?
By Gab on 01.24.2013
Responsibility. A lot of people have words that scare them and this is one of mine. I can’t seem to succeed at being as responsible as the world expects me to be. The world I live in isn’t really a realistic one.
By H URL on 01.24.2013
I have to admit that responsibility is something I usually shirk. I don’t enjoy it, nor do I particular enjoy wearing a shirt. While it should be noted that I am otherwise a fine and kind gentleman, my lack of responsibility can for sure hurt. It is in this manner that I think we are all judged: in the absence of responsibility, can we succor our lives with yogurt?

love, kindness.it is needed at all times. you can never lose it. you babysit someone. you have to be responsible for yourself. you have to watch out for others. you can’t control your destiny. your faith is not in your hands. be carefull. look out.

I have a responsibility not to break his heart. To keep saying no because I know its whats best for him, even if it hurts me. I have a responsibility to make sure I don’t fall more in love with him, cause then it might get too hard to say no.

Yesterday, I came to a conclusion about myself: I prefer to blow with the wind, be led–floating–down a winding river. I once took a trip with my family where I did just that–floated. Even in floating sometimes, there seems to be a race. I don’t get that. Me, I’d like to sip a cold lemonade and float. It’s okay if I don’t know everything now, though knowing purpose is wonderful. So, here we go. I float and I flutter. As Annie Dillard said (something like this), “If I am a maple key falling, at least I can twirl.” And that’s that maple key’s only job in that plummeting moment: to fall. Just flutter and twirl and look like a helicopter. Fall.

Responsibility is something you slowly learn over time. At first it seems like a pain in the ass, especially when you get your first job around highschool and you just end up blowing all your money on cd’s and food and movies and friends. but when you get to college and get your own place and have to pay for everythng yourself. then you realize showing up on time and turning things in on time and doing things in a responsible way really are worth it. But you find ways to dick around and still seem responsible. Like dealing with constant hangovers and still getting to work on time, Or staying up all night to finish a paper that you could have done a week ago. You went to class and you took notes but you never worked on it. The knowledge is up there waiting to be spilled out, and you throw up all over the paper that night and desperately try to organize all the thoughts you have been having about that topic since it was proposed. I am not sure if procrastinating is responsible, i mean, I did the work and i turned it in and it isn’t complete bullshit so i guess i would would classify it as bare minimum responsibility. Responsibility isn’t just about work and school though, you owe your time and effort to friends and family too. I have a real problem practicing “out of sight out of mind” mentality. But to make a conscious effort really is something else. Get out of your stupid mind for a second and think about other people and what you can do for them or how you can help them, and pretty soon with enough practice you won’t just be doing this for family and friends but to complete strangers, and when you start practicing selflessness then responsibility no longer has that nasty tone to it but it now carries something a little more rewarding.

“It’s not my responsibility!” I screamed at her. “You’re the one in charge of making sure dad doesn’t hurt anyone when he has his delusions! Not me! Because of you people are HURT, people might DIE! You were supposed to watch over dad, but you’ve just let us all down!”
By Kristina URL on 01.24.2013
The heavy thing that makes me plod, makes me pay, makes me sad and insane. The bills that never cease to arrive in the mail, although they were paid only last week. The assurances I have to give those who live with me that we’ll all have heat and water, just because it’s NOT their responsibility but mine. Ugh!
By Sidris on 01.24.2013
You think that childhood is bliss
All because you avoid this
But what is success and confidence
With no responsibility?
Is it truly really true
That you don’t want to do
What is expected of you?
But isn’t that the follow through?
Good times come
By Jess on 01.24.2013
responsibility is something you have to realize benefits everyone. it is an act of selflessness when you get to the bottom of the issue. By the end it does not seem like something that you do for authorities or parents or teachers but something you do to benefit everyone in the end. i guess
By richard frances abigail nouget URL on 01.24.2013
You wish for childhood,
The bold and the true,
You mainly wish for the freedom of ‘don’t do’
You wish for the days when you
Had an excuse to be

I sighed. This was really getting old, this ‘big sister’ thing. I’d taken them to the park, taken them to the movies, taken them to McDonalds, and now I was out of ideas. It wasn’t as if I had any experience in this: What did they expect me to do?
By Maddy URL on 01.24.2013
I accept responsibility for all that I do. Sometime I accept responsibility for things I dont do just to keep the peace and make everyone happy. I have learned that it’s better to be sad inside and act like I am happy so that everything can stay the same.
By af URL on 01.24.2013
Well it’s not like that’s something that you can have on your own, you know? It’s something that you have to learn, or teach yourself. It doesn’t float about in the air either, people take it on themselves. We take it for ourselves, and for others, but it doesn’t come to us without our reaching out for it. Responsibility isn’t something given, it is something taken.
By Emrys on 01.24.2013
there is nothing that can be more of a lie then the remote thinking that we are responsible for what the past others have done to us
By brianadam on 01.24.2013
