Respect... Find Out What It Means To Me...

Thursday, July 8, 2010
In the writing world, you meet a different variety of people. I cannot stress enough how important it is to treat others, how you would want to be treated. Along your journey down Literary Avenue you'll meet kind people, mean people, people who doubt you, and people who could just plain care less about what you have to say. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to lash out, how many times I wanted to tell those people exactly how I felt, but I never did. Is it because I'm a door mat? Is it because I let people walk all over me? NO! It's because I was taught to respect each and every individual I come across, no matter how they treat me. I'll tell you a story. When I was about five, there was this little girl in my kindergarden class. I was always a pretty likeable kid. I was kind, I included people, and rarely ever made fun of others. What did I do with this little girl? I included her, I played with her, I made her feel like she was a part of something. Now, here's where this all comes together. You never imagine what kind of impact you are going to make on someone's life. It's all in the way you act. And come to find out that years later, this little girl wrote a paper about me. And that paper won an award. You see you never know who you are going to come across in life. And it's important to respect each and every individual you meet. Who knows you could be talking to the next Steven Spielberg.
