    So it sucks that I will gime my man anything he asks me for long as it's something possible to give. It is not the same when it comes to me. I even get charged for things and it's like he is trying to be funny when he knows I don't have any extra money. The part that really gets...

    Kind & With Respect

    That is not difficult to do...even if it does not come naturally for you like it does for me and others you can still learn by watching and following the examples of others.

    Manners

    I strive everyday to treat everyone I meet with respect and dignity. It is also called manners. Is it that hard to be decent to everyone you meet?

    I will never attack you although I will defend myself if attacked. I will never call you names or purposely try to hurt you in any way. I will always be honest and expect the same in return. I will show you nothing but respect but expect you will give me the same. It is easy to...
