Hello, My Friends
I found this quote while scrolling my feed.
I was raised to show respect.
I was taught to knock before I opened a door.
Say hello when I entered a room.
Say Please and thank you, and to have respect for my elders.
I’d let another person have my seat if they need it.
Say “Yes sir” and “No sir” and help others when they need me to, not stand on the sidelines and watch.
Hold the door for the person behind me, say “excuse me” when it’s needed, and to love people for who they are and not for what I can get from them and most importantly,
I was raised to treat people exactly how I would like to be treated by others.
IT’S CALLED RESPECT.
I thought this is so applicable.
What if you weren’t taught these values as a child?
What if it never occurs to you that holding the door open is a courtesy that you can bestow on some-one else?
We are often quick to state that our youth have no respect, but we expect that someone else will teach them about good manners.
It’s like everything in life, we don’t know what we don’t know.
Some of us haven’t had good manners modelled.
By taking the time to care enough to share, not preach, not judge, or badger, we, each of us can take a willing person under the proverbial wing and share what we know.
Every one needs a mentor, respect is an attribute that can be taught, by example and by caring.
Today’s question is… Will you be a respect mentor?
Until tomorrow, Show respect with your actions and your attitude, talk to someone about what manners mean to them. Listen to them. Value their opinion. Give respect.
