There seems to be less and less respect all the time...

I believe that we are seeing this all over the place.

Loss of respect for others and ourselves.

Look at the way many are dressed.

Look at the way authority is being treated.

 

It is hard to get the respect of others when you don't respect yourselves...and others.

It is no wonder society is getting the way they are...

I got a buyer agent's leads today. This guy wants to interview 6 agents and  pick one who is most qualified....... One can check on line for reviews, credentials and check out first.  Up to 1.25M which is a modest home around here. You do diligence first have respect on our professionalism.  

You can let go the agent(s) who can not get the house for you...

A sad but true commentary on today's society William.

William, it's true and people seem to treat each other with less civility as well.

It was funny when it was said by Rodney Dangerfield.  But it is not funny in real life. We are witnessing the end of Western Civilization.

Yes, William Feela our society is in decline with the lack of respect, morals and general decency in media, movies and day-to-day life.

Sad but true, however, we can't give up.  If each of us act with integrity and respect for one another we will make a difference.  Society will appreciate our efforts.

William, I suggest you read Dr. David Hawkins book Power vs. Force and Eye of the I.  One positive person can offset millions of negative people. Our positive energy is infectious … contagious.  I truly believe love always wins.  We can make a difference in the world by how we chose to be ... and what we choose to become.

Hi William.  It starts with respect.  Respecting teachers, police officers, etc.

I feel the same way, William.  It's a shame.

William Feela I think this is because humans are trained at an early age to have the last word in any argument. No humility any longer, let alone respect. Love your post!

Good morning William.  This short post is cause for long hard look not only at ones self but all that surrounds us.  Mark

Couldn't agree with you more, William!  Those with their pants hanging around their thighs bother me the most.

Good afternoon William,

Somehow the parent's will have to learn to make these decisions and teach their own kids instead of expecting government, teacher's and others to do it!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Posted by Raymond E. Camp, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Greater Rochester (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) over 3 years ago

I do agree with you, Bill. I also agree with Kathleen Daniels comment. I will continue to show respect and be a positive person.
