Accepting Your Responsibilities In Life…


It is always good and easy for us to talk about our entitlements in life. To some us, life owes as a lot more than it really does. We remember our rights and will go every extent to enforce our entitlements.

However, what we forget is that, there are no rights if there are no corresponding responsibilities.  Anytime we enforce a right, a duty or responsibility is placed on someone so that we can enjoy our rights. There is a correlation between rights and responsibilities.

As much as we love to talk, enforce and seek our rights, we must also remember to accept our responsibilities in life. After all, there would be NO right, if there is NO responsibility.

As humans, we easily feel bitter about our responsibilities, seeing them as a burden and would often seek for ways to avoid them. We forget that every responsibility brought before us gives us a new chance to make a change and contribute to the world.

Must we see our responsibilities as a burden? No, if we care about our rights, so must we care about our responsibilities towards others and the world. It would be satisfactory to open our arms and accept our responsibilities with fervour.

To be able to do this, we must look for the opportunities hidden in these responsibilities and the accompanying satisfaction once these responsibilities are performed.

Always talking and looking at your rights only makes you a constant RECEIVER. Why don’t you give something out to the world you life in and others by embracing your responsibilities with smile?

If out of your actions or omission a burden is created, accept your responsibility by fixing it and do your best to make a positive change.

Look at your existence, do you embrace your responsibilities the same way you enforce or embrace your rights?

If you do not, start accepting your responsibilities more in life. And anytime you have a duty to honour, remember you have to do it because it would give rights to someone else.

Same way others have to take up responsibilities to give you the rights you so much cherish, you must take up that of others too.
