adult responsibility - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Adults gain responsibility as they mature, thus it is essential they have the time and space for personal reflection that garners them the ability for self control and emotional self regulation.
Manhood and womanhood require courage. It is a sense of adult responsibility we grow into as we protect the younger generations. We learn to become their shield, the heroes we wished we had.
Every blessing is a curse, the blessing and independence of adulthood comes with the price of emotional self containment in times of stress. The mature adult contains and releases stress in a safe manner that protects vulnerable others. They are the good shepherd in tough times and take the hits as required.
Adult responsibility requires a sense of perspective and proportion to events in the current moment, for his role is as much about emotional anchoring as choices. However, it is vital that an ability to listen and act when required is retained and honed, for anchors must be raised when the ship needs to sail to better waters.
A responsible adult realises when to seek peace, when to stand their ground, when to protect and when to say that the fight is counter productive. This is learned wisdom.
