is for respect
A lot of the world’s troubles is due to lack of respect.
People and countries don’t respect one another’s culture and beliefs.
People and countries don’t respect their home, earth.
You don’t have to love or even like someone to be respectful of them.
Being respectful doesn’t mean you have to agree with what they say or do.
It is simply a courtesy to be considerate and civil.
Granted, it can be difficult to give respect to someone who is arrogant and pompous.
It is not easy to be with those who are conceited, overbearing, and presumptuous.
It is best to have as little interaction with them as possible.
There are those you know, and some you don’t know personally, who affect your life.
How and to what extent they affect you may determine your feelings toward them.
As hard as it may be it is important to put feelings aside and be respectful.
This is not to say be a doormat.
Be humble and modest, be strong and confident, and stand up for yourself.
Being respectful of others requires self-respect.
Without self-respect, you will not know or understand the power of respect.
Having respect for yourself is not egotistical or boorish.
All respect begins with knowing who you are and the value of all life.
Be someone who understands respect begins with you.
