Before you hurt someone, take a piece of paper and crumple it up. Have you done it already? Good! now try to make it the way it was before…. You can’t right? Peoples’ hearts are like this piece of paper, once you have hurt them, it is difficult to leave them the way you found them. …so before you hurt someone, THINK HARD about what you are doing?
I love people for who they are. Throughout my childhood and teen years it was indelibly etched in my brain to show RESPECT. I was taught to KNOCK before I open a door. Say HELLO when I enter a room. Say PLEASE, THANK YOU and show respect to everyone I encounter. And most importantly I was raised to treat people exactly how I would like to be treated. It’s called RESPECT.😊
The respect you show to others, (or lack there of) is an immediate reflection on your self-respect. Being gracious to everyone, regardless of their age, shows your true character. Do not ever think you are better than everyone else, or you deserve better than anyone else just because you are degreed🎓 or have titles. Your title means nothing if it doesn’t honor the character you show. The truth is we are all the same. Never look down at others unless you are helping them up.
Always remember this: no matter what or how much you achieve in your life never forget from where you came from. I stand by those who are pure at heart, by those who don’t lose sight of where they come from because it made them who they are. By those who have been through struggles, but still sustain a smile and try to be better not only for themselves but for others who were in the same shoes as them.
Remember people cannot read our minds, but they can see our behaviour and observe our manners. Ensure that you always act with good manners. First impressions count!
‘Be better than you, not better than others!
Blessings and Love….
