    I Was Raised To Be Respectful, But...

    I was raised to be respectful to everyone except myself. I was raised to be respectful to people that didn't respect me, and they abused that. All I learned by being raised to be respectful is to disrespect myself. A "good upbringing" is not all it's cracked up to be.

    It Was Non Negotiable

    Not only did my parents not put up with any amount of disrespect, but neither did any of their friends and they would not hesitate to whip someone if they got too mouthy! I don't know that it was the best way, but it worked on me!

    I Will Respect You

    My mom and a lot of the people that I grew up around raised me to kind and respectful especially towards those that are older than me. And so I have been a very respectful person, so I have been told anyway. If I respect you I expect the same thing back. I do not and will not...
