Simply Yourself

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

  1. I love it, but one needs to qualify what being yourself means. I have found that only selected audiences are able for me, being myself. I am a little too much at times, my self, and I can promise that it is not always respect one gets in return. The art is in being a little dangerous and only a little extrovert and very serious that brings out respect. I think it’s fear, not respect. But I am 71 and no longer care if I am too affectionate or loud or silent or trying to blend into the decorative ferns in the corner so no one will notice I am actually there. It depends on so many factors which me will emerge. Love you, Eddie. As you were.

kindness is always welcome
