25 Shades of Craig: Respect

Trinity Nicks

We all want it and we should all give it back, but at times it is very hard to give, especially when you feel like you are not on the receiving end.

I am talking about respect.

I admit at times that I don’t like or even care for my ex-husband, and at times I feel that my life would be easier if he would just disappear.

But those are my thoughts and I would never in a million years express those feelings to him or in front of our child. Even though we are no longer together that doesn’t mean that my child doesn’t love, adore and cherish him.

When one person talks bad about the other, it not only makes the one who is doing the talking look bad it also hurts the people around you. When these negative words are spoken you are putting everyone around you in a negative environment.

How do you expect anyone to respect you when you are unable to show respect to others?

I have seen a lot of this lately with the election.

We all have the right to our own opinions. That is what makes them our opinions.

Everyone has the right to think freely and to share their opinions and thoughts. Just because you don’t agree with them does not give you or anyone else the right to be disrespectful, hateful and mean.

We are lucky enough to live in a country where we can voice our opinion. You may not agree with what others think or do and that is your right, but it does not give you the right to be disrespectful.

Remember the words that come out of your mouth are a mirrored reflection of how you think of yourself.
