Respect - What Do You Think? I believe respect is a two way street, therefore we must give respect to get respect. I believe we should give people the benefit of the doubt; especially if we donâ€™t know all the facts in a situation. We should not pass judgment or make assumptions, because making assumptions without knowing the whole story usually leads to false assumptions. And, false assumptions usually leads to more offense and more hurt feelings. I believe (especially as Christians) that we should be open and honest about offenses; with unconditional love and respect, not judgment. It takes the whole team working together to accomplish a positive outcome, but I believe everything starts at the head and flows down to the body. I believe this forum has proven to me to be very respectful, and the head seems to be screwed on pretty straight. So far, I have received nothing but love, acceptance, compassion and understanding; regardless of my beliefs. No one here has ever tried to pressure me into believing a certain way or thinking a certain way or responding a certain way. I havenâ€™t even felt pressure to participate or answer questions if I donâ€™t want to. Thank you all so very much for just letting me be me. Thank you from the bottom of my .
