Folks, it is my belief that we are who we are based on where we’ve been and how we’ve responded to the different circumstances faced…in “LIFE”. We react to EVERYTHING in such a way that helps to shape the person we become. Everything that happens during life alters the person we are, either positively…or negatively. WE GET TO CHOOSE.
One such choice we make is how to interact or relate to others. Spouses, children, friends, neighbors, co-workers, strangers, waiters/waitresses, sales clerks etc., etc., etc.! Are we “different” pending the company we’re with at any given moment? Or do we “CARRY” ourselves consistently in the presence of any group? Consider those questions and answer, TRUTHFULLY…to yourself ( I promise that nobody else can “hear” your thoughts–your “secret” is safe with yourself ).
I try my best to approach EVERYBODY, EVERYWHERE with the same degree of respect that is deserved by ALL. EVERYONE IS EQUAL! EVERYONE IS SPECIAL! “I TRY,” folks. I may not always succeed, but “I try”.
New situations tend to yield apprehension. Aren’t most people that way…INITIALLY? It takes time to develop a sense of comfort and confidence around people. With friendliness, respect, and nurturing, you get growth. With insults or degrading statements, you get stagnation, if not regression.
P.H.P., folks. PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE!!! Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do? Help people to grow…as people…helping people… to… SURVIVE LIFE. Build people up. Try not to tear them down.
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
