Microstory 368: Responsibilities

Click here for a list of every step.
Positive Contribution

I think I’ve pretty much covered this in my story about “basic romantic involvement”. I don’t know who came up with these titles, but it was me, and they’re weird. I was this close to replacing this entry with a different topic, and slightly less close to scrapping today entirely. My sister told me that I may need to cut back on my website if it becomes too overwhelming for me, and continues to interfere with my other responsibilities. Oh, that’s what I’ll do. You’re probably confused, because by the time I finish this...sentence, I’ll have actually gone through with changing the topic to something else. Yeah, it was gonna be “lifelong partnership” but there’s nothing I can add that I’ve not already said, and you guys get it by now; we all need different things. One thing we have in common, though, is the fact that we all have responsibilities. We have to take care of our children, our parents, our households, our pets, our possessions, our money, other people’s money. Not everyone has all of those things, and we don’t all have the same things, but we all have something, at least one thing. This is important. I used to think that propagation was the only purpose to life. To an extent, that’s still true. I understand your choice to not raise children, but at the same time I don’t, because that’s just something I can’t wrap my brain around. The joy of protecting another human being, and molding them to reach for happiness isn’t really something you get until you’ve been there. Or you’re like me and you can just feel it. Anyway, I’ve been talking a lot about searching for your own happiness, and doing everything you can to that end. However, it’s not an end. Life is not a goal, it’s something that you continue to work through. Millennials have a different perspective, choosing to work as little as possible for maximum gain. This is exactly what we should all be striving for, but that doesn’t mean you should seek a life of zero effort, because then you become, well...pointless. Always be responsible for something, just don’t make it too hard on yourself.
