Love, Like Hate, is More Than Feeling. Either is a Choice; One Driven by Overcoming Fear, the Other Driven by Fear

One of the role models for my work, the global initiative transforming respect from a discretionary value to a principle for all people.

WHEN WE CAN’T LOVE PEOPLE … Because We Judge, Don’t Approve, or Like Them, We need to at Least Learn How to LIVE AND LET LIVE … RESPECTING Every Person’s Right to Choose

On the news today, 20 km north of my birthplace, Chatham, ON, someone or a group of people posted a sign about God forbidding abortions and homosexuality. Someone else or a group of people took the sign down as it is now reported gone.
This type of thing was a key driving force in my decision to study the Bible on my own because I could not understand why Christians could be so hypocritical, disrespectful, mean, and downright vicious.
The Bible story of the woman caught committing adultery comes to mind. She is brought to Jesus by a crowd of men who tell Jesus the punishment for an adulterous is stoning. Jesus pauses, bends down, writes in the dirt, and then replies with whomever has not sinned (done things God doesn’t like,but forgives with his merciful love), let him cast the first stone. Jesus then asks the woman if anyone remained and she replies no. Jesus then says who is he to judge either, but to go and sin no more.
The Bible contains a lot of do’s and don’ts, but taken out of context or extracted to justify one’s disrespect to another, means we don’t get the big picture … Jesus died to give us peace and God loves us unconditionally so we can learn to do the same for others. Anything less is not what God asks of us all.

Perspective on “RESPECT and LOVE” From World-Renowned Psychologist Alice Miller and …

“I love my children if I can respect them with all their feelings and their needs and try to fulfill those needs as best as I can. If I see them not as persons whose rights are just as sacrosanct as my own, but as objects that I have to correct, then that is not love.”

Free From Lies Discovering Your True Needs, Alice Miller, p 223

“Most parents don’t want to hurt their children; they do it automatically, by repeating that they themselves learned when they were small. We can help them to refrain from this destructive behavior by explaining to them why it is so destructive. Then they can wake up and make a choice.”

Free From Lies Discovering Your True Needs, Alice Miller, p 240

The introduction and study of Alice Miller’s body of work changed and played a big role in healing my life. Fueled by my deep compassion for all people, what I learned about respect and love from Alice Miller inspired my development of the Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle concept, company, books, products, services, and global initiative. My compassion and respect for everyone, plus my understanding of what needs to change in our world drives me every day to keep moving forward with this body of work that will hopefully help many others as Alice helped so many too.

“The Most Important Factor in a Relationship is Not Communication, But Respect”

As an author and creative myself, I don’t want to infringe on another’s copyright, but the thing is, in this case, I visited Mark Manson’s site to read his original article, but frankly, though I appreciate the wisdom shared about long-lasting healthy relationships, as creator of the “Respect Scale” as part of my concept, book, company, and global initiative, I had a lot to learn about respect also.

As a result of what I have learned and embraced, I am put off reading Mark’s article because of the title of his book. The reason is a higher “Respect Level” translates into not using profanity or other means to put down other people, but to live and let live without judgment and/or condemnation.

On that note, because of the disrespect I received and therefore dished out until I learned new ways to interact with people, I’m going to share Justin Brown’s post instead and let people choose which author’s article they prefer to read because overall, I do find the insights and wisdom helpful as I work on further developing my relationship skills.

Click below to read Justin Brown’s article and click inside the article to go to Mark Manson’s version.
