RESPONSIBILITY

RESPONSIBILITY

TODAY’S DAILY WISDOM WORD IS RESPONSIBILITY.  AT WHAT POINT DO WE AS MATURE ADULTS TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS?  AT WHAT POINT DO WE BECOME THE ONES RESPONSIBLE FOR SOMETHING THAT IS WRONG? 

YOU MAY FIND IT FASCINATING TO LEARN THAT THERE ARE INDIVIDUALS OUT THERE INCAPABLE OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS.  THESE INDIVIDUALS SIMPLY CAN’T TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WRONGDOING.   

THIS HAS TO DO WITH THE WAY THEY VIEW WHO THEY ARE.  TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SOMETHING, WOULD ALSO MEAN TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR OURSELVES AND USING OUR INTERNAL  “TRUTH CHECKER”.   THESE INDIVIDUALS  WOULD HAVE TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OR RESPONSIBILITY AND BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR ACTIONS THEY SIMPLY CAN’T ACCEPT THEMSELVES CAPABLE OF BEING ACCOUNTABLE FOR.  THEY DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS TRUTH AS THEY VIEW IT AS A REFLECTION UPON WHO THEY ARE INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING OUR HUMAN SIDE AND OUR CAPABILITY TO MAKE A MISTAKE. 

TO SEE THEMSELVES IN THE KIND OF LIGHT TRUTH WOULD REVEAL IS SIMPLY TOO MUCH FOR THEIR EGO AND PRIDE. SADLY, TAKING RESPONSIBILITY WHEN WE ARE IN THE WRONG IS PART OF BEING AN ADULT.  TAKING RESPONSIBILITY MEANS THESE INDIVIDUALS WILL HAVE TO SEE THE TRUTH ABOUT THEIR FLAWS AS HUMAN BEINGS AND THEY SIMPLY ARE NOT CAPABLE OF DOING THIS. WHY?  FIRST, IT REQUIRES RIGOROUS HONESTY ABOUT WHO WE ARE AS INDIVIDUALS AND THESE PERSONALITIES ARE INCAPABLE OF LOOKING AT THE TRUTH REGARDING THEIR CHARACTER WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO LIE TO THEMSELVES ABOUT WHO THEY ARE AND OTHERS AS WELL.  WHO THEY ARE IS NOT WHO THEY SEE THEMSELVES AS AND THE IMAGE THEY DO SEE, IS DISTORTED.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT THE WORD RESPONSIBILITY ACTUALLY MEANS IN OUR WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION. 

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF RESPONSIBILITY-1.   THE STATE OR FACT OF BEING ACCOUNTABLE OR TO BLAME FOR SOMETHING.  2.  A THING THAT ONE IS REQUIRED TO DO AS PART OF A JOB, ROLE, OR LEGAL OBLIGATION.  3.  A MORAL OBLIGATION TO BEHAVE CORRECTLY TOWARD OR IN RESPECT OF.

DAILY WISDOM WORD MEANING OF RESPONSIBILITY-1.  BEING ABLE TO HAVE ENOUGH MATURITY NO MATTER HOW BAD FACING THE TRUTH ABOUT THEMSELVES  IS IF THEY ARE CAPABLE OF ACCOUNTABILITY DOING SO AND HAVING ENOUGH RESPECT FOR ANOTHER TO ACCEPT AND FACE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE RESPONSIBILITY THEY HAD FOR SOMETHING GONE WRONG.  WHEN ONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR A WRONGDOING TO OTHERS OR WRONGDOING HURTING THEMSELVES.   NOONE HAS EVER SAID TAKING RESPONSIBILITY AND OWNERSHIP FOR WHAT HAS GONE WRONG IF YOU CREATED THIS PROBLEM INTENTIONALLY OR UNINTENTIONALLY WOULD BE EASY.  PART OF BEING AN ADULT IS BEING ABLE TO BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR WRONGDOING WHEN THEY ARE AT FAULT.  IT IS DIFFICULT TO DO THIS.  IT IS SO DIFFICULT IN FACT, PEOPLE GO TO MANY LENGTHS TO COVER UP THEIR PART IN WHATEVER THE WRONGDOING WAS ESPECIALLY WHEN THE ROLE THEY PLAYED MADE THEM FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ISSUE.  THEY WILL LIE, CREATE STORIES OF FALSEHOOD, CHEAT, STEAL, LIE TO THEMSELVES, DECEIVE, AND GO TO EXTREME LENGTHS TO AVOID THE TRUTH ABOUT WHO THEY ARE AS PEOPLE. 

WHAT THEY DO NOT REALIZE IS THEY MAKE THEMSELVES LOOK WORSE TO OTHERS AS THE TRUTH IS USUALLY REVEALED. THEY END UP THINKING EVEN LESS OF THEMSELVES WITH THE LIES THEY  TELL TO AVOID THE ACCOUNTABILITY OF THE ISSUE THEY CAUSED COME TO LIGHT.  THEY LOOK WORSE THAN THEY WOULD HAVE IF THEY HAD ASSUMED RIGHTFUL OWNERSHIP OF WHAT THEY ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR AT THE ONSET OF THEIR MISTAKE WHICH BECOMES INTENTIONAL WHEN THEY LIE ABOUT IT. 

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING ABOUT RESPONSIBILITY TODAY AND WHAT IT REALLY MEANS.  ONE LAST THING I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE IS IF A PERSON IS WILLING TO LIE INTENTIONALLY TO THEMSELVES THIS MEANS THEY ARE CAPABLE OF MANY OTHER THINGS THAT CAN BE FAR WORSE THAN DENIABILITY.  DON’T BE ANGRY WITH THEM IF YOU ARE A VICTIM OF THEIR LIES.  PRAY THEY GET HELP.  SAMANTHA LEBOEUF/DWW

[…] truth of the matter is that if we truly care about people and how they feel, we will be responsible  enough to attach filters in our mouths and embrace humanity so warmly that even though you cannot […]

What a great article on responsibility! I can’t believe when people won’t take responsibility. I always try and be kind and take responsibility be cause i believe in karma. It may not come in this life but for sure in another but probably this one. The first thing i taught my kids was to take responsibility-you will get in a lot less trouble. And now as adults they know the difference between right and wrong.
