Responsibility, at a time when you’re just about learning to deal, form a nodding acquaintance with your own, an additional commitment. One only wonders why one was chosen for the honor; and what must have influenced the decision ages ago, the weight is not too easy to bear nor the choices too easy, one can only guess. Past the shock of the responsibility, an awareness of the issues, how this can break or make, and above all, an overriding need to be fair and seem fair to all. As a friend put it, take a deep, deep breath and keep a clear head.

Sometimes others judge your capabilities better ....and reward it in the from of added responsibilities. That you consider a responsibility as an honour bestowed upon you, shows that the decision of choosing you for that position/work was right....

"an overriding need to be fair and seem fair to all"

Exactly.
To see (judge, deceide), and to be seen (judged, categorized).This is the dilemma, the balancing act.

Trust yourself.
