You are response-able to and for you. It is not your job to shoulder someone else’s response-ability.
For instance: yesterday, a man rang our doorbell. As we live in a block of flats, I could not see this person. He said, ‘I’m here to read the landlord’s meter. Could you please let me in?’ I replied, ‘I don’t know you and I cannot let you in.’ He said, ‘But I’m here to read the landlord’s meter.’ I replied, ‘I understand that. But I am not the landlord and I cannot see you. I do not know you and I cannot let you in.’ He said, ‘But I need to read the meter.’ I replied once again, ‘I know that is what you tell me. I do not know that it is true. I do not know you. I am not the landlord. If you need to read the meter, please make arrangements with the landlord.’ I ended the call.
Some of you may believe that is harsh and unnecessary. However, as a tenant in a block of flats, if I let someone into the building, I am response-able for them and what they do while they are in the building. It is written in the tenancy agreement. So, I cannot willfully allow entry to someone I do not know. It is not my job. It is not by response-ability.
Be response-able for to and for you. Honor your integrity. Be in alignment with your purpose and your soul. Speak truthfully and directly. It is not your job to do this for anyone else. Do it for you.
