    Finally, Success.

    For years, I have relied on other people to make me feel worthwhile. If someone smiled at me, or was nice to me, it was a good day--I was good enough. But there was always someone that I could never impress, no matter what I did or no matter how much I wanted to. I have tried...

    I want to be respected.

    If you can take a simple no or listen to me then I'm not going to waste my time. You'll be blocked.

    definition of respect. Respect means no judgement, no criticism, no control. Respect means complete acceptance, constantly creating the right energy irrespective of how the other person behaves.

    Take Me Or Not

    Everybody deserves to be loved and respected. Why can't I have that too? A lot of people want you to look and act a certain way. Why should I have to pretend to be someone I'm not? Nobody should tell me how I should act and dress. I know I do things that some people might not...

    that people have lost the ability to respect themselves and each other. It seems that only a tiny fraction of Western Civilization's Population actually believe that each and every person (including themselves) is intrinsically worthy of being treated as a valuable person who...

    Don't we all? The problem comes,

    I think, when people choose to hide who they are rather than honestly expressing themselves. Having imperfections is okay. It comes with being human. Not giving people something to respect or even love is cowardly and a complete waste of a perfectly good life. Especially when...
