I think that for many people the concept of "responsibility" has at least partly negative connotations. After all, responsibility is something akin to obligation, necessity, duty, "if you call yourself a coward - get in the truck". By the way, a moment of enlightenment. If with a pear tree - more or less understandable - a mushroom so edible, then what he does in the body? After all, the body is something from the car, right? Well, that's what I thought before. But no! The body is abbreviated from "cuzovok": a basket, a basket of baskets. It all makes sense now. But back to responsibility. It's a hard word to pronounce, and I have to repeat it often😊. Now, this is something that is not very pleasant. Made some kind of promise - you have to keep your word. You took on some functions - you have to pull the strap. Not without reason there is a popular phrase: "burden of responsibility". You can even type that word into Google and see what pictures it produces. And those who can be described as "responsible", as a rule, hump for those who "like water off a duck's back". And in general, observing the modern picture of the world, we can conclude that it's not so good to be responsible for something. Or maybe it is good, but I don't feel like it! And we begin to remember our carefree childhood and prepare our children (if any), they say, go for a walk while they are young, then the lafayette will be over. And, as a consequence, when we are told that it is good to be responsible - there is cognitive dissonance in the head. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ So today I would like to open up this topic a little wider. And look at it precisely from the perspective of the absolute good. Especially the individual good. And when everyone is aware of this personally, it is also good for society as a whole. From the point of view of social norms of ethics and morality (which, no matter how you look at it, are constraints), responsibility to someone is really a necessity to fulfill some obligations you have undertaken. And if you took them under some pressure, outside your will (the boss ordered or circumstances forced) - there is really not much to like. And, as a rule, at this stage there is a division into "tolerants" and masters of their word (in the sense of "I gave my word - I took it back") ⠀ ⠀⠀ But what if I tell you that responsibility to society is only a consequence of responsibility to yourself! And this responsibility is much more multifaceted and, believe me, pleasant. And now I will explain it. To begin with you must recognize the fact that you alone are responsible for everything that has happened, is happening and will happen in your life! That is - responsible. And no matter what counter-arguments you bring me from the category: "What does my responsibility have to do with the chicken egg that fell on my head? That kid over there threw it, I saw him hiding in the window". Believe me. You chose to go down this road at this very time. And even if you were held up a few minutes earlier by an acquaintance you met - it was your choice to hold up... And so on. A continuous chain of cause and effect, in which you are constantly making a choice. But often unconsciously. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ So get over it. You are the cause of everything in your life. The good news is great! Because your future depends on you and only on you, not on external factors. Especially if in your head there is already born another objection: "But children are very dependent on their parents, and not everything they decide. Right. But you're not a child. Even if you're under 24 and you understand what I'm talking about, that understanding will give you a very fat trump card in your adult life... ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀So.
Once you accept responsibility for your life, you begin to manage it. It's a manageable life. But it's a manageable life. And if it's just a matter of skills, you go and acquire them. And you don't shift responsibility for your life to others - it's useless. They have nothing to do with it. It's only on your action or inaction, on how consciously you act, that your life depends. And if you keep blaming all your failures on external factors, or relying on random luck like the lottery, you are dependent. You're living in uncertainty. Your life is being lived for you by someone else. But that is also your choice. ⠀ ⠀⠀Further is better. If you take responsibility for yourself, you are more selective when it comes to your commitments to others. And before you make a promise and fail to keep it, or break your neck but do it, you weigh the cause-and-effect chains, analyze the consequences to which the promise may lead, and responsibly make a decision. And in this case the responsibility to others will not carry a negative coloring. And if it does - you see the reason every morning in the mirror and can always draw the appropriate conclusions. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I suppose there is no need to discuss what the emergence of a large number of people responsible for their actions will lead to in the context of society. Everyone can dream for himself... Dream for now... ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀So what? Maybe it's great to be responsible after all!
