Auto-respect is turned off

December 10, 2009

I was just thinking, I don’t want anyone to ever respect me solely based on my age. I think respect is something that one has to earn until the day they die. Sometimes, I get the feeling that people just give up after a certain point. “I’ve had my kids and paid my mortgage off. I am sick of caring about anything else”. I hope I never get to that point. I’m sure some of my older readers will feel like I am knocking older generations, this is not what I am intending. I respect people for their histories and past triumphs. I am just stating that the moment people stop pressing forward and rely solely on the past, they have lost.
