Respect

Doreene Felder 1967 (Phila.)



Respect
Remembering to treat others as you love to be treated

Each person has their own definition of what respect is

Seeing things in a rearview mirror only shows what's coming at you.

Personalizing what you already saw before you

Each of us has our own faults which over succeeds what we see as right

Creating a disaster or not

Treating others as you treat yourself is the best way to know if you are disrespecting
Yourself or someone else .
