You shouldn't have to always be the one to take responsibility. You need to look after yourself as well as others.
Because if you take the responsibility then others will follow your lead and they will act responsible as well. It just takes some people to see someone else do it first before they are willing to change their actions.
Because you are responsible for your own choices. You should be responsible for yourself but not for anyone other than you.
Because life is not always fair... So sometimes it can help to move past the question of who's turn it is and to just do whatever needs to be done. You might feel better afterwards!
Leadership is about responsibility. Sometimes you have to do the right thing as a leader and take responsibility for whatever situation.
Although being the person who seems to always take responsibility can be draining, taking responsibility can have many great benefits, such as building character and great work skills. Perhaps think of it as a blessing in disguise or recognize what it says about your personal development.
You may be the one that has a head on their shoulders and know what to do but also accept that you can be in the wrong just like everyone else.
“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.” ― Noam Chomsky
You are responsible for your own self and what you do. You are also responsible for your own happiness. Don't let others define what you should and should not be responsible for.
Because in order to control our own life and scripts, we should be the one who is in charge with our own emotions, thoughts and behaviour. When we give the responsibility and power to others, we give them the control while we lose ours.
The reason is why is that shows you how trust worthy, loyal, and constant you are. If you weren't, the person probably wouldn't give a certain responsibility.
