I think it's different for every person. For me, I want to make an impact and I plan to do that through getting a degree in Psychology and helping people and families.
When I really think about it, I don't feel a "responsibility" to anybody. I just see the hardships people experience and I want to be there for them just because I have compassion toward them.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that might be the same thing. If you feel compassion for a stranger and want to help them, perhaps responsibility feels like the wrong word.... but at the same time I think it kinda fits.
