I was listening to a conversation between two people about love or respect. The topic was whether you rather be loved or respected. My thought was, “who is loving or respecting me?”. As people we sometimes think too highly of ourselves. Who told you your respect will be valued by me? Who told you I needed or wanted your love? Why should I be honored? You think I care about getting respect from someone I despise? These words, “love” and “respect”, have been overused! Let’s not confuse common courtesy with respect.
