Respect


This word is swimming around my head since last weekend. . Why??

Practically

I see so many people do not understand the meaning of this important word.

Emotionally

I am more affected by this word than I am comfortable admitting.

Spiritually

I realize being respectful has grey areas. It’s difficult because respect is respect you are probably saying right? But there are loopholes.

Why aren’t people understanding simple principles of respect such as do unto others as you would like others to do unto you? Why are we spending so much time dwelling on hurt feelings, pride, leading to so much lost time? When we can look at each other as individuals and consciously, deliberately choose to make a difference.

Respect toolkit

I looked at this toolkit and quite agreed with its basics of respect:

1. Tell your truth

2. Know you are valuable

3. Follow your passion

4. Trust your gut

5. Set boundaries

6. Be compassionate

7. Get Help

8. Have coursge

Within these. 8 very important basics are sub basics of dignity and respect standards to further enhance you as an individual.

Remember, you should not be a two faced individual. It will only make you untrustworthy.

I like to feel I am who I am.

What you see is what you get.

I may have two sides to my disposition when dealing with circumstances in that I am serious when it comes to work and fun loving when I am not on a task which is work related. Across board my character never changes. You can depend on me being consistently the same person. There are no hidden agendas

This is a huge component of respect. Being someone other people can trust and share confidential information.

This is a huge factor in being respectful of others. I struggle with this from others. I see annoyingly how others are treated as though they have no value. But everyone has value.
