Old Who do you respect the most? @ 09-03-2003, 06:55 PM

If you could only pick one person, but it could be any person, who would you say you respect more than anyone else?

I don't know if this is right or not, but I'd honestly say myself. Before I wouldn't have. But now I seriously would, because I just see things in myself I didn't before. Not to say I'm perfect, I'm just as fucked up as anybody who is human. I'm just saying that as far as having to pick out a human being with decent qualities that I respect goes, I'd pick out myself.

I mean I see admirable qualities in all people, and other people have things about them that I wish I had. I just see a greater quantity of qualities I'd want in myself than I do in anyone else, so I'd pick me even though I realize all my faults that I have as well.

Now if I didn't pick me, I'd probably say Angelina Jolie. She's been over in third world countries where mine fields and bombs are working her ass off doing hard physical labor in the hot sun to get her hands dirty and build houses for people. She adopted a son that needed a home despite the fact that her man didn't want her to and it caused problems in her marriage because she wanted to follow her heart, so she took on the lifetime responsibility of being somebody's mother who is not even her flesh and blood. She filmed a movie in Cambodia and slept in a 'glamorous' tent in the middle of the desert that was filled with tarantulas.

Now that's pretty fuckin ill, and I can't say I've done any of that myself or that I even would if I had the chance to. But I don't know what Angelina would do to handle herself in every situation or what all her beliefs are. So I guess I'd say I respect myself the most and her the second most.

My old art history teacher in college. She was by far the best teacher I ever had, and she was one person who you could talk to about anything, my best friend and I spent a lot of time in her office.
Plus she was ok with the fact that I,along with my best friend, skipped almost a whole semester of her class and still managed to get an A in the class. I worked my ass off to get the A, so did my friend, she did not hand the grades to us.

My mom.

I don't know anyone who went through as much as she didgrowing up. She paid the bills when she was a kid and she worked all throughout high school, had three jobs in her senior year, all because she wanted to go to a catholic high school that was nice instead of the crap public school (that I currently attend...heh) She's the most humble person I know and she has achieved so much. She grew up pretty poor, didn't meet her dad until she was nineteen, and she went about finding him, she grew up with her mom who wasn't really stable I guess you could say and I think a lot of people would be mad at their mom for the way they grew up if they had been her kids but my mom still helps her out in every way she can because my grandmom has diabetes and my mom always helps her and does way more than she has to. My mom grew up with her half brother and sister and she still treats each one of them like they are her full blooded sibling and goes out of her way when they need help, maybe a little too much for my aunt at times, and then her other half brother on her dad's side because her parents weren't married, she always tried to help him as well. My mom always puts others needs in front of my own and she's such a strong and positive person. I don't know what I'd do if anything ever happened to my mom, I'd be lost. There's so much more I could write but it would go on forever.

I respect certain attributes of people in general but not one single person. I respect people who keep their promises and who don't waste my time < that is top of the list. I respect a father's loyalty to his children, especially if he did not plan to have a family.

that is a very good question. I don't think i respect just one person per say. Becuase many people with good attributes also have bad ones. Well the things i do respect is loyalty keeping promises and love of friends. Anyone who loves someone i respect.

I don't really have a person I respect over anyone else... I tend to see almost everyone as a flawed human being.

The topic said who do you respect the most, not who is a perfect and flawless human being. If somebody can't be respected just because they have flaws then I guess nobody can be respected and you can't even respect yourself. And yeah we all have good and bad traits, but I do not believe that bullshit they drill into you about all of us being equal. That's a load of shit if I ever heard one. I'd never say my mom's ex-husband is equal to my grandmother, and I definitely respect her more.

I think it's really sweet that so many people said their mom. When I was on the phone with my mom telling her Josh and I were coming back to Ohio I started crying and telling her how while I was away I missed her so much and realized what a great mother she had been. I think being a mother has got to be one of the greatest challenges life can ever give you, and I hope I'm ready for it when my time comes.

Yeah, I realized my mistake after I typed it. But actually, there aren't many people I respect..... I like alot of people, but respect is earned, y'know?

But um.... there isn't anyone I respect the most. I wanted to say Tia, but her head's big enough anyway. lol

But you are the egomania of the board, ask anyone from Australia. I think respect has to be earned too, but I respect tons of people. Too many to name. I guess my standards aren't as high, which is probably why I can meet them myself. I think how you see other people has a lot to do with how you see yourself, if you are too hard on one you will be too hard on the other.
