There are ways to communicate with people without being hurtful or disrespectful. A lot of people have poor communication skills that are shown in the way they speak to others. Anger, hostility, and hurtful words that inflict pain and show disrespect are not needed. There are ways of respectfully disagreeing or even checking someone. When you talk to your peers or children are you doing so from a place of respect?
Respect is just as common as common sense.
Have you ever felt like this….
I am not sure why people think they can talk to me in a disrespectful manner and think I am going to tolerate it. I'm not animal, I am a human being with a soul and emotions and you will treat me with respect.
When they hear you roar back at them all of a sudden are you in the wrong?
I don't care who you are there's no place for it. As a grown woman, who's paid her dues, endured storms, and is progressing through life, you don't need all that. No one does.
The things that you have accomplished, experienced, overcame, and endured make you the Woman are today. You have every right to command respect. When appropriate, allow your voice to be heard. Say what needs to be said in a direct, and assertive way.
I don't think it is too much to ask to be treated with respect, neither should you. If I don't talk to you out of line then I definitely do not expect to receive that from you. We're all adults, speak your peace without attacking the core of my being and I will respond as sweet as Carolina Ice Tea. Come at me any other way and the power within will rise and slay you.
It seems that respect, communication, trust, loyalty, and confidentiality are traits becoming lost to most of humankind. I salute those who still operate out of these principles!
I don't stand for disrespect. Period.
You cannot treat someone like trash and expect to get the best out of them. That goes for anyone. Children, employees, coworkers, family, friends, strangers, and lovers. If you want respect you must give it. No one was put here to be a doormat, treat others the way you want to be treated. This is a basic elementary school principle that many people have forgotten.
Take some time and ask yourself, how am I treating others? If you feel like you're always in defense mode or you're lacking respect, ask yourself if you are speaking up for yourself and being assertive.
