Ten Myths About Responsibility

  1. Someone else will do it. They might but that doesn’t make it right.
  2. If I own my mistakes, people will think I am a failure. They will likely think you are honest and have integrity.
  3. If I am free, I don’t have responsibility. The opposite is true, responsibility comes from freedom.
  4. Responsibility impedes independence.
  5. I know my rights! Every right implies a responsibility.
  6. Social issues aren’t my job. Individually and collectively, we all have a social responsibility to make the world a better place.

  8. I can’t make a difference. If each of us accepts responsibility for our intentions and actions, we can begin to change our world.
  9. That is the government’s (someone else) job. Democracy only survives if we participate.
  10. If it’s never our fault, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.
