I have learned to respect myself first and in turn RESPECT others

Since my introduction into this program, I have observed, listened to the various interactions of others and explanations on many topics and [I’ve] learned much. Especially concerning RESPECT!!!!!! Respect is what one must have for self in order to receive it from others; however, it has been my experience and observation that no matter how much one gives, in one form or another, respect for themselves, they will not give [it] to others.

I cannot give to those what they themselves do not have. I treat them with kindness.

Please do not misunderstand my viewpoint. I have learned much from this class, but it truly pains me that a few so called “men” continuously choose to be disruptive and disrespectfully towards “us” who come to class to learn and how best to apply what is being taught, to their lives.

I have learned to respect myself first and in turn RESPECT others. Thank you sooooo much!!!!!
