Its 9 AM and I'm already awake, wtf? Today is Easter and I'm going to Flo's with my parents. I hope Seamus and Rachel are there cuz I miss seeing them. I miss everyone else too but I haven't seen Seamus in awhile and we're kinda good buds. I also can't wait to hear some of Uncle Kevin's humor. Motherfucker cracks me up haha. I generally love going to Dover anyway because I don't do it as often as I'd like.
I want to write a little about respect this morning because I want people to know what's cool and what's not. After my last blurty was published, some comments were written and I responded to them by asking for a little respect. Today I'm here to clarify what I mean. I am a big advocate of respect and although I consider myself an easy going, open-minded kinda guy, I will defend it to the bloody end if I have to. There's a fine line between speaking your mind and disrespecting someone.
First and foremost, and this one's obvious; if you are my friend, please respect me and my beliefs. I mean, why would you want to bash on your own friends anyway? lol. Rarely has this ever been a problem for me because I have so many good friends who are smart and considerate. Everyone may agree to disagree on certain issues, but no one should ever preach to me how I should live my life. I'm 23 and I can take care of myself. Respect it.
Secondly, respect my girl. This one should probably be listed first because if you disrespect her, you're basically disrespecting me times a thousand and I won't stand for it. If you don't have something nice to say about her, do yourself a favor and don't say anything at all. Remember, I love her with all my heart and she's my girlfriend for a good reason, so don't go thinking you know something I don't. I love all my friends, but if worse came to worse I choose Molly over anybody else. That's not meant to sound cruel, its just the way it is. Anyone who's ever truly been in love can understand that. Respect my relationship and don't poke your nose in where it doesn't belong.
Third, respect my friends/family. They're the ones who've always been there for me. Not everyone can get along and I know nobody likes everybody, but then again I'm not asking you to like them. But respect them for who they are to me; what they represent to me. I don't care who you are, you mess with my friends or family, you're going to be sorry. Where I come from, you stick by those people no matter what. No one has any right to question why I'm friends with somebody. If you don't like it, too bad. Keep comments about them to yourself. They're not going anywhere so you should respect their rightful place in my life.
Lastly, I'd just like to point out that everyone is different. Everyone's got their own way of viewing the world, and who's who to decide what's right or wrong? I try to respect everyone's opinions and I always look for a way to resolve people's differences. Sometimes it doesn't always work and that's fine. Its just how things go. But try to put yourself in someone else's shoes before you go and open your mouth and say something you may regret later on. Think how you might feel if you were them. Just because someone acts or thinks a little differently than you doesn't mean they don't have the same feelings inside them.
I wrote this blurty because it is my own personal opinion; my own belief. If you respect me, than you can respect that and I will in turn respect you for it. Remember, you only earn respect if you respect others.
