When you think of the word “responsibility”, what comes to mind? Getting your school assignments done on time? Helping your family with the daily chores? Watching out for your little brother or sister?
Responsibility definitely means all those things, but it means something more too. Responsibility is also about looking inside yourself and doing all you can to be the best person possible. And trying to see what you can do to help others. In short, when you practice responsibility, you’re on your way to making your life the very best it can be!
