Respecting Others

                        Maybe because we live so much of our lives in the digital world that it is so easy to hide behind our computers and become anonymous. It seems like we have forgotten how to respect each other. You have strangers bullying people online, you go to a store and people become enraged if someone bumps into them, in restaurants people are yelling and screaming at the staff if they have to wait or if their order is incorrect. What happened to when we used to show respect to others. When we helped our neighbors, and when someone was in need, we would not hesitate to help them. Were we not taught that if we wanted respect that we had to show respect to others even when they didn't respect us? Has it become difficult for us to accept the fact that we are not the center of the universe, and everything does not revolve around us.? Have we forgotten that when we are nice to others, not only does it make us feel great it makes the other person feel good too? So, lets quit hiding behind our computer screens and slow down and think about how our actions and words might affect someone, because we never know who may be watching how we treat others. Maybe next time instead of being disrespectful to someone try getting to know them. You just might make a knew friend.
