The concept of responsibility is a thing taught to us even as we start out as toddlers. Primary lessons on this value includes making sure that the milk prepared is finished; that we study our lessons; that we must come to school on time. All these actions, as taught to us, have respective repercussions if not done: that we will not be healthy if milk is not finished; that we can fail if we don’t study our lessons; and that we miss vital information when we come to school late.
Why is the value of responsibility taught so early in life? because it is a value that shall define who we are, what we fight for, and how we take things that come in life.
As we climb the ladder of life, responsibilities escalate from mere drinking of milk to preparing the milk. And we must be prepared because responsibility itself is a preparation and stepping stone to further, heavier responsibilities.
As we go through life, we encounter responsibilities, not only those that make us grow, but even those that make us fall. That is why have to be responsible people, to make the growing part a bigger deal than the falling part.
And when responsibility calls for us to do things that may incriminate us, it may be very difficult to do. Though responsibility is a value taught from birth, it is the value that we easily forget, or easily neglect. No matter how difficult, we must face RESPONSIBILITY.
And the acceptance of it comes with peace of mind. Trust me.
