    The Boss

    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.

    objectivity.

    Everybody is different. Be it in the way their mind works, their mannerisms, upbringing or just overall outlook; but in a society such as ours one cannot help but be subjected to both ends of the spectrum. As I have said before, a person’s physical appearance is not my initial...

    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.

    I will always respect someone

    if they can respect me back. Once you've crossed that line, either I can no longer trust you or you are just no longer worth my time.

    I don't care if you're my elder

    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.
