It very well could just be me, but I make a point to say hello to everyone I come in contact with, I mean geeze, it's common courtesy, right? This was how I was raised and how I'm raising my child as well. I really couldn't see it any other way.
Maybe the correlation of respect and human nature is no longer in the cards.
One must respect who they are before they can respect another and I believe in this.
Second, respect for who you are comes with loving everything....your mind, body, spirit and soul.
Third, self-respect entails confidence, self-love, and the ability to think positively. The hope one can respect another will and can be possible if these items are taken more seriously.
It goes a little something like this, "DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER"!
I understand this seems like such a simple and manageable concept, but the fact is, this was important enough to me to post about. I hope it mends the heart of one that realizes maybe they need to be more respective of themselves and others as well.
Thank you as always and make it a wonderful day!
