When You’re Content

When you are content to be simply
yourself and don’t compare or
compete, everyone will respect you.

  1. Hmm… I think this is the way it should be, but not necessarily the way it is in reality. Unfortunately, respect is hard to come by these days…

    Perhaps more accurate to say if you are content with yourself, and not competing with others, it is easier to respect THEM. That respect given might earn respect in return, but only if the other is capable of feeling and showing respect…

    I know, I know, I’m starting to sound like a pessimist when it comes to other people, aren’t I? Sorry, ’bout that. Hopefully it’s just another phase I’m going through…
