Aim for respect

Respect is important but it should be based on goodness not fear

Respect is important but it should be based on goodness not fear

Hey guys! I am back with a little dose of positivity 🙂 There are four kinds of people in the world. The extrovert, introvert, wannabe extrovert and those who keep shifting from extro to intro(and vice versa) from time to time. Correct me if I am wrong please. I would love to talk to you guys about this.

All of them have one thing in common-to find a niche to fit into

Imagine a room filled with different walls. Each wall belonging to different groups of people and each wall filled with little niches for people to fit into and build a comfort zone.  We all like to be complimented, well most of us anyways. Some want a compliment on their body and some for their mind and work. I started thinking about which kind of compliment is the right kind? I may be overthinking of course. If one is complimented one should be happy right? Not me. Some kinds of compliments satisfy me and some don’t and then

It dawned on me that what I want is respect

Respect that makes me hold my head up high and not my nose. I want people to respect me for what I do. If I help a homeless person-respect. If I beat up a person for molesting someone-respect. If I have immense knowledge and share it-respect. I don’t want people to tell me I look hot and neither do I want people to look down on me and think I am of no “use”. But, respect doesn’t come easy. You need to work to earn respect and maybe because of that it is not easily found because many people are busy complaining rather than working for it.

I had a point in my life where I was the first person on the “take on team” list and a point where I was the last. I found things easy before. If you have read any of my previous posts, you will know that after one very depressing point in my life I gave up on things. That’s when people started thinking that I am incapable of things. I still live in that same place amongst the same people and have to bear the brunt, but now I am gaining back my place because I decided to take things in my hands and gain respect. It is a long way but now I know that I don’t need a light at the end of the tunnel. Things are clear now.

I was and am the bright light I just took my time realizing it

You are the bright light in your life too. And that angel that is guiding you? was attracted to the light that is you. 🙂 What do you think? Tell me about your thoughts 🙂
