    I Hate This Phrase!

    I really hate the phrase "respect isn't given, it's earned". It's one of the stupid things that people say that really ****** me off. Of course respect is given - how else would people get it? You respect the elderly, or your superiors yet they haven't done anything for...

    Jimmyrudyjump Please Don't Vent At Me Simply Because I Blocked You

       I have no idea why you and others get so upset when you are defriended or blocked. Seriously. I, myself, have been blocked at a guess 200-300 times or more.  Sometimes by those I know, other times by those I don't. You don't find me writing stories to rant about it, do you...

    Respect / Disrespect

    I value respect. I don't know if its true about I respect until disrespected.  Some have disrespected me and I still talk to them or whatever but the feeling in me is not the same.  I still respect but in a differen't way.

    My nature is this exactly to respect and trust all until shown otherwise.  However, this is not the best way to be in a hostile L.A. world, so I adapt.  I am now more skeptical and gaurded, in orcer to protect myself.

    Why The Vitriol?

    This Is Pretty Straight Forward

    Yeah, I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, even if they appear a little "out there" at first. You're supposed to treat people the way you'd like to be treated. So that's what I do. Don't come around here and disrespect me though. Because if you do, I'm...

    I always respect people when I first meet them. Sure, I may not talk to them, but I still show them respect. Though, there are a few people in this world that I don't respect. And this is because they don't respect me... at all. So I can not find it in myself to...

    Respect Your Elders?

    I do not feel I have to respect someone just because of their age if they are not respectful to me. I will respect everyone I come across until they disrespect me. Not to say I'll be rude, but I will tell you upfront my feelings and make it clear that you have lost my respect.

    or not, if you don't respect me I won't respect you. It's really that simple. Respect doesn't apply to a certain age group no matter what, that would be ridiculous.
