Day 18 – Disrespecting Parents

I don’t think this should be a thing solely on “disrespecting parents” because it sounds like “Don’t disrespect your elders,” as if you should allow them to disrespect you.

Let’s get things straight before I continue. Nobody should be disrespecting anybody, but don’t let yourself be taken for an idiot. Sometimes parents can be disrespectful (or even worse), and I do feel the correct thing to do would be to “let your presence be felt.” Again, this doesn’t have to be done disrespectfully, but sometimes you need to show you are a human being too.

Maybe I’m looking at the question differently, but I don’t think age, experience, or position should determine whether or not you should allow someone to treat you a certain way. If you were to get stabbed blood will come out. Everyone is equal. So let’s all be nice to each other, and respect people’s feelings.

    Completely agree. And in my religion we are allowed to speak up against elders, including parents, in cases of injustice, it’s our duty too.

      Everything on this side is deemed as “disrespect.” They expect us to be robots
