There are certain things in life that others will be responsible for. When you’re young, your parents are responsible for teaching you manners and your teachers are responsible for your education. However, when you get older, you’re responsible for so much. In many cases, only you are responsible for them. Here are some of the things that you’re responsible for.
When you get older, your education is up to you. Sure, your teachers, professors and lecturers are responsible for teaching you the material, but you’re responsible for doing your homework, picking the right course and making sure you get what you pay for. If you go to college but don’t turn up to your classes, you’re not going to do well and there’s only one person to blame: you!
While there are some things that you can’t cure and you need surgeons to help with some situations, it’s up to you to live a healthy lifestyle. It’s up to you to eat the right things, cut out the bad things and go to your checkups regularly.
If you think you spot a problem, it’s up to you to go to the doctor to find out what it is and get is seen to quickly and early.
Your Financial Situation
Yes, you need a job, but you’re responsible for your financial situation in the end. If you spend more money than you have, you’re going to end up in debt.
If you quit your job without having another one, you’re going to struggle to meet your payments the next month. You need to make the best financial decisions for you, whether that’s cutting back on expenses or asking for help when you really need it.
The Things You Do
When you make plans, you need to stick to them. When you agree to make repayments on a loan, you need to stick to them. You can’t blame others when you don’t do the things you say you will or when you do something different. It’s your responsibility and you need to accept that.
Things do happen in life. The traffic may be bad one morning or you may have an emergency. It’s up to you to ring ahead and let people know what the problem is.
If your pet fouls in the neighbour’s yard, that is your responsibility. You need to clean up after him and dispose of it properly.
You may even need to apologise for the mistake. A pet is only going to act in a way that he has been trained, and it’s up to you to train him properly.
Finally, your habits are your responsibility. Some habits aren’t that bad but others cause damage to the environment and lives of people around you.
It is possible to break your habits, but you have to admit that you do them and accept that it is your flaw and nobody else’s. This takes time but you’re on the right path by taking responsibility for them.
