How Would You Feel If This Was You?

Today was very challenging to say the least. Actually it was bloody hard. I am still trying to get my head around it and find the silver lining in the situation.

It happened and I am at a lost with what to make of it. What Ever Happened To Respect?

As many of you are aware I am doing a nursing course in Certificate 3. If you are new to here go to Woodys Boys by clicking here to see what is happening in Woodys House.

Within the course is a person who is in need of care. Care that is only able to be provided by the right services. I am not sure of the persons situation outside of the course, and I do not know the persons history. All I know is that after watching the person I am concerned about what is going on within that person. I have watched a room full of people only worried about their needs, their own thoughts and their own feelings without thinking of the person that is going through some kind of a situation.

I am wondering what ever happened to being mindful of a person’s feelings?

Luckily the said person is in their own little world and does not know what is going on around them.

There was NO respect in that room today and I for one am ashamed that I am Australian, sitting in a room full of people who are so un-Australian.

I like to say to my Boys “Do To Others Like You Would Like Done To You” and “How would you feel if that was you, and everyone was laughing at you?” I am a big believer in doing to others as you would like done to yourself.

Choose Respect.

I found a Site “Choose Respect” with a quote on his home page that I would like to be able to share. Please Stop On By Here To see what the Owner Of The Site has as a motto. If Only we all lived by his saying, what a wonderful world we would live in 🙂

What Has Become Of Australians That We Can Not Show We Care?

I am looking beyond today and moving forward. The Silver Lining from Today? I am Proud to say that I did not laugh when the person was in the room, nor did I make fun of the said person situation.

To get my head around the whole situation I am going to be leaving you with this quote – ” To Be Yourself In A World that Is Constantly Trying To Make You something Else Is the Greatest Accomplishment” by Ralph Waldo Emerson”.

May We All Think About Another Persons Feelings Before We Act On Our Own!!

    Recently, I watched “Julia and Julia” with my wife and was introduced to the concept of blogging. I enjoyed reading your blog and thank you for mentioning my website. Will you help me change the world ? You can help me change the world by becoming a “Champion” of Choose Respect in YOUR world.

    The issue you raise is just a symptom of our world where systems dehumanise us. Everyone deserves respect because of our inherent worth as human beings. I hope you were brave enough to follow your heart and bring their behaviour to account because you have the moral authority.

    In my own world, I have decided to speak out and I have put my hand up to make a difference. This has led me on an exciting journey of connecting with others like yourself to work together for a better and safer world. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE !!!

      Hello Gary,

      Great to connect with you. I am waiting to see how the company from the course handles the situation next week because we are going to be having a de-brief.

      I like to think that I have respect for others because I know that if I was made fun of it would hurt my feelings. I believe in the saying “What you give out is what you get back”. My late Grandmother was a great teacher and I can still remember her teaching me when I was very young that “Do unto others as you want done to you”.

      Wonder what has become of our society that we have forgotten how to be respectful? Its a great cause that you are representing.
