Life is not perfect for anyone of us, but we can make it much easier when we choose to be respectful of others. Respect others, even if you don't like what they look like or how they sound, because it is simply your opinion and it may not matter to them. Respect yourself enough where you can respect others. When you attempt to offend someone, you may not succeed, but you are leaving an image of yourself that is less than flattering. If we would search ourselves daily, we would see our flaws and our shortcomings, which should prompt us to make adjustments. We all have areas in our lives that need work, and we should work on those before we try to put others down.
Make the human choice to uplift others, to empower and inspire.
