On the Subject of Respect





a wall backgroundA


Respect, not only means honoring
the word no physically, it also
means honoring the word no verbally.

Inappropriate comments 
that come with a smile and or laughter 
under the guise of being a joke,
after boundaries have been clearly established
are not funny.
 It shows as much disrespect, 
as touching someone without their permission.

One Love. One Peace. Always and all ways.

I feel ya on this one. Sometimes it's almost worse to have someone cross the line verbally. It's a complete violation of a persons boundaries. And it stays with you long after the comment is made.

Alejandro, I can't imagine you needing to look at yourself for this offense.

LOL Nana!!! R-E-S-P-E-C-T


Becca, you get it. Unfortunately the people who need to get it, don't.

Disrespect is never appropriate. Unfortunately it is a lesson that sometimes cannot be taught.

Indeed.
