Who do I respect?



Who do I respect?


I respect everybody who deserves respect, or who has earned respect. It doesn’t take something major or extraordinary. If someone is walking the face of the earth and being a good person I can respect that.

I respect people who disagree with me as long as they can defend their position intelligently. If a person is just arguing to argue, or pointlessly shouting like all the stuff happening in politics, well, I don’t respect that at all.

I respect those who try to better the world.

I respect people who help others, especially those who have nothing to gain by helping. If you’re a “What’s in it for me” type of person or someone hoping to get something for your help, I don’t respect that. Helping somebody who has nothing to offer you is a sincere and genuine act of kindness, and I respect that.

I respect achievers.

I respect people who are responsible and can take care of themselves, because if you’re strong enough to take care of yourself, you’re capable of helping those who can’t.

I respect mentally strong people. I knew a financial advisor who had a sign on his wall that read:

“If you want to help the poor, don’t become one of them.”

Strong people are important because weak people can’t help others. People that have focus and want to better themselves, I can respect that.
