To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

“I was raised to show respect. I was taught to knock before I open a door. Say hello when I enter a room. Say please and thank you, and to have respect for my elders. I’d let another person have my seat if they need it. Say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and help others when they need me to, not stand on the sidelines and watch. Hold the door for the person behind me, say ‘excuse me’ when it’s needed and to love people for who they are and not for what I can get from them and most importantly, I was also raised to treat people exactly how I would like to be treated by others. It’s called respect.

    This is the absolute truth many people are big stones, cliffs, disruptions, stumbling blocks, let and hindrance road blocks in your life.

    These learnings to show respect is not about “good” manners but the teaching of a desire to communicate who you are. “Hello, I’m here and want you to know that you are, and your space is, safe”. East Indians do it with head wiggles. It’s beautiful to know you can relax in the proximity to this stranger and not worry.
