And you must drink from it, like it or not

And you must drink from it, like it or not

George RR Martin

Sometimes we have to take responsibility for things we shouldn’t have to do,

Maybe it was someone else’s task, but they failed or got sick or something,

The cup gets passed to us

Regardless of whether we want it not, we have to step up to the plate and take responsibility

Whether that’s acting team leader or stacking shelves, becoming head of household

We can sit and cry about it which won’t change anything or we can step up do our best and make the most out of a bad situation

We can’t control the future but we can control how we respond to it

The full dialogue from GOT (book I’ve not seen the show)

“Brandon. Yes. Brandon would know what to do. He always did. It was all meant for Brandon. You, Winterfell, everything. He was born to be a King’s Hand and a father to queens. I never asked for this cup to pass to me.”

“Perhaps not,” Catelyn said, “but Brandon is dead, and the cup has passed, and you must drink from it, like it or not.”
