Responsible to others, not for others
The only person you are responsible for is yourself. I can imagine some going, but I have a spouse, children, parents, a dog, etc. I will get to them in a moment. You are responsible for only one person, yourself. For you can’t think, speak or for the most part act for any other individual or group. However you are responsible to everyone else. Your responsibilities include treating them as you wish to be treated. To show wisdom in what actions you choose, that affect them. Your thoughts should be based on understanding, love and compassion. Once we understand the difference between our responsibilities to and for, we will find, we are more tolerant, less judgmental, more forgiving, and a lot more patient, to name but a few changes.
