Respecting those that we may disagree with or have opposite views with is essential to life.
Getting along and respecting our nice little inner circle is easy , and funny thing is some in that inner circle may not be who you even think they are.
You do not have to lessen your values or beliefs if you respect others , actually the opposite is more true- respecting others takes strength and is honorable.
You cannot look for respect if you continue to deny others of that same right.
It stay more in control when you respect people that have different views , you are saying that it is ok for others to come at things at a different point of view and give them a chance to explain or vent, - it is ok and healthy.
Take a breath, listen and stay positive-
