RESPECT


“We don’t need to all agree, but we do need to all respect.”

- Jared Yellin


I had an interesting feeling the other day…


There’s this one person on Facebook who has a completely different philosophical belief on most big issues that exist in the world today…


Personally, I don’t care whether we agree...AT ALL...but the other day I found myself pretty charged up by this person.


It’s one thing to have your own opinion and to think for yourself - I admire this regardless of whether or not we align.


BUT…


It’s an entirely different story to break other people down to lift yourself up…


This person was berating…

Attacking…

Placating…

Someone who did not align with their beliefs…


AND


They were doing it publicly!


But here’s the real issue…


WHY is this the new NORM?


Why can’t people have their views and NOT be attacked for thinking differently than someone else…


For example…


If someone chooses to NOT wear a MASK - they are NOT an ANTI-MASKER. They are just making a decision for their health.


If someone chooses to NOT get the VACCINE - they are NOT an ANTI-VAXXER. They are just making a decision for their health.


If someone chooses to VOTE REPUBLICAN - they are NOT a RACIST. They are just making a decision based on their values.


And it goes both ways as well…


I don’t understand why the world has evolved to a place where differences are not respected AT ALL and instead - creating a divide that will eventually become almost impossible to cross.


Listen, I disagree HARDCORE with 99% of the things happening right now - but as long as my decisions are respected the same way I respect others decisions - we can and should live in harmony.


But the moment that someone decides to try and prove someone else wrong in an unsolicited manner - is the moment that the divide expands.



For The Record - I Am Not On A Bandstand - But I Am Charged!


This is not a preachy article…

This is not meant to generate an opinion….

This is not focused on even making a change…


But I must admit…


I am freaking charged up because I do believe that the amount of judgement and opinion being thrown around unsolicited is going to be a detriment with no solution.


Families will be broken up for good…

Friends will become enemies for good…

A great divide will be established for good…


MAYBE this is for the better…

MAYBE this is meant to be…

MAYBE this is the awakening the world needed…


I am open to all of this and I am optimistic as well…


We are ALWAYS exactly where we are meant to be…

ALWAYS…


But…


I am still charged by the constant disrespect people are publicly displaying for those who don’t share their values…



So here’s my thought for you…


Everytime you bring someone else down - it’s clear that you are uncertain of your values.

Everytime you berate someone - it’s clear that you are in pain and I am sorry.

Everytime you believe you are right and others are wrong - it’s clear that you suffer from insecurity.

Everytime you publicly shame - it’s clear that you are a broken human.


I know people hate the word BROKEN, but I am using it intentionally because that word is at the root of the problem.


People who are WHOLE…

People who are COMPLETE…

People who are at PEACE…


NEVER need to prove anyone wrong in order to prove themselves right.


Instead…


They KNOW they are RIGHT for them AND they don’t CARE about what anyone else does.


This is where I operate and I am choosing TODAY to let go of my charge from that uncertain, pained, insecure, and broken human that charged me up the other day…


I am sorry you are where you are…

I am hopeful you will find peace…

I am grateful you helped me grow…
