BeAwesome: #53 Respect

BeAwesome: #53 Respect

I’m not concerned with you liking or disliking me.. All I ask is that you respect me as a human being- Jackie Robinson 

Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power- Clint Eastwood

Respect is something many of us think we understand. We think we understand and often believe we display this action on a regular basis. To respect someone and who they are as a person, seems difficult for our world. Personally, I’m not to sure why?.. But I think mainly because we are selfish and still unwilling to look and love someone for who they are on the inside, rather than for what they see on the outside. Eminem (Yes Eminem) said ,” I do not care if you are black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you. Simple as that”-Eminem. Respect goes well beyond holding the door for the person behind you. Respect is about (yes) treating others the way you want to be treated (Thanks Mom & Dad). Those who are AWESEOME respect others for who they are. We listen when we are spoken to. We take turns. We respect our passion for life. WE open the door for our elders. We volunteer our time when available. We really try to do the right thing. We respect ourselves. Respect
