Why Do We Disrespect Others?

Are we so proud of ourselves that we feel a duty to pour scorn on everybody who disagrees with us?

Why do we disrespect others? Are we so proud and full of ourself that we feel a duty to pour scorn on everybody who makes a mistake or disagrees with us? People with bad attitudes, inflated egos, and the belief they are better than others force their disrespect on us every day. No matter how gifted we are, someone is always more or less skilled on the physical and mental plane, yet we are all the same in ways that appear hard to measure. We are all on the same road, which begins with birth, then we fulfill a purpose in life, and then we face death. We are all subjects on the same planet, all of us with a body, mind, and soul, no particular person is better than the next. People have forgotten where they came from, what and who is really important in life and respect is a trait that is quickly becoming a lost art.

Imagine standing in line on an infinite circle that has no beginning or no end, we cannot get off the circle. Are we in a position that is superior to anyone else on the circle? When the line has no beginning or no end, it doesn’t matter where we stand. We cannot get off the circle and there is no advantage in the order to where we stand. It would make no sense to look at the person beside of us as being more favorable or less favorable than our position on the circle. We would all occupy an equal part of the circle.

Is there abuse, inequality, injustice, and prejudice carried out by people? Of course there is, but it makes little sense to add to the fray since we are all equal parts of the Human Race. When encountering someone who struggles with life, why not show some respect and compassion?  When we encounter someone who is highly successful, give a compliment, take notes, and strive to learn from them.

Instead of gloating over being right or being the best, wouldn’t it be nice to be humble and show compassion to others. Our voyage from the beginning is one from blindness to enlightenment. It makes sense to help others and to be kind for all the times we have been maltreated. Some say respect is earned, I say respect is learned, starting very young at home with the love and guidance of a compassionate parent.

I believe what is spoken from the heart and soul speaks volumes about who we really are. When our heart and soul becomes overpowered by ego, anger, deception and insincerity, we often speak foolishly. If actions and words are not from our innermost being we are not who we want to be. I believe in speaking from the heart and soul, I've found most folks prefer genuine people. I encourage you to listen to your heart and soul, to speak of the things that have brought light and wisdom into your life. The topics I present are heartfelt and come from years of experience with life, research and common sense. I extend my sincere wishes for the best to come your way. Thank you God for uplifting traits within us all that brings out the best of who we are. I look forward to your comments.
