Respect Everyone!

The more I respect and trust myself, the more I respect and trust others.
The more I listen and honor my own needs, the more I listen and honor others’ needs.
The more I care for and appreciate me, the more I care and appreciate you.
The mort I give myself time, energy and love, the more I give others time, energy and love.

RESPECT yields a Respectful, Good and Successful Life. (See Below)

Do you understand what it means to show “respect”?
Do you give respect to yourself and others?
To judge, blame, shame or belittle another’s thoughts, feelings or beliefs is not respectful
To dismiss, neglect, reject or threaten another is nor respectful.

When we make fun, humiliate or demean another, we have forgotten to be respectful.
Often people talk about infants and children and others, as though they are not listening.
People seem to believe they cannot hear or do not care about what others say or think.
We may say what we would never want anyone to say about us.

When anyone talks to us, we need to take the time to listen or request a better time and place.
When children or partners want attention, it is respectful to give what we can when we can.
When we learn to give ourselves the respect we need, we are better prepared to respect others.
Learn to satisfy your own needs first, so that you have the time and energy to share with others.

When someone needs help, we can be respectful whether we say YES or NO.
When we respond as though we are responding to ourselves, we achieve a higher level of respect .
When we listen to others  with greater compassion, we are demonstrating respect.
When we talk with others with a kind and loving intention, we are teaching respect.

Our culture has neglected to respect time, energy, money, creativity, helpfulness and service.
When people are giving their best, whether disabled, uneducated or inexperienced, they are respectful.
When we ourselves make mistakes or behave inappropriately, we can learn to be respectful.
We can learn to dress, speak, act and make respectful choices.

Each one of us makes a difference in our relationships and world consciousness.
Let us stop telling, expecting and criticizing others to do better.
Let’s be respectful of their learning curve, level of development and awareness.
We can be respectful role models and change agents.

Consider how to talk with respectful language.
Review your appearance to see if it is appropriate.
Address people and respond with respectful language.
When you are uncertain, ask for guidance from someone who seems more respectful than you.

It is time to change the level of respect in our culture, so everyone feels treated well.
We can gauge our consciousness by how respectful we are at home with our friends and family.
We are demonstrating all the time how aware we are by how we present ourselves in the world.
Let’s respect ourselves and represent how conscious we are with everyone.

Blessings of respect,
Betty Lue
