  • Do you feel like you are always the project manager, the one who takes on more responsibility than others at home, at work and in your free time? 

  • Are you constantly frustrated that no one sees the work you put in to get things done and help out others? 

  • Do you often feel annoyed about your coworkers or family members not doing things right? 

  • Are you often stressed and tired?


If so, your ability to take on responsibility may have become a problem – you suffer from what we in this course will call “responsibility syndrome”, or a dysfunctional and exaggerated sense of responsibility. Over the upcoming 15 lessons we will have a closer look at why you so often become “the responsible one”. You will receive suggestions about how to break out of destructive behavioral patterns and some help and encouragement to dare to change.


This course is aimed at anyone who has had enough of their own tendency to be overly responsible and feels that they need to get better at letting go. 


Welcome to freedom, and welcome to irresponsibility!



Please note! 


One important aspect of responsibility syndrome is that you may belong to a group that has been assigned more responsibility by your surroundings and existing social structures. Thus, talking about “responsibility syndrome” can be a bit misleading, since we then blame the individual. The question of how to deal with social structures that, for example, provide men and women with different opportunities in life is much too large for the scope of this course. If you still feel like you have some room to maneuver, this course will work anyway.
