A Robert Michaels quote

Something inspirational:

“I don’t care if you’re black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you’re nice to me, I’ll be nice to you. Simple as that.”

  1. It’s a very simple concept that I try to live by, but we don’t live in a simple world anymore so it isn’t always easy.

    I remember growing up where people didn’t worry about hurting other people’s feelings, which is why I don’t always understand when they speak pc.

    I am talking about politically correct language which is a foreign concept to me. I already overthink about what I’m going to say to people so this makes it ten times worse.

    I’m not a mean or rude person, but feel like I have to censor my thoughts even more than I already do. It just seems like other people can do and say whatever it is that they want to, while we’re expected to bite our tongues and ignore it.

    Life doesn’t seem very fair at times but I try my best to behave like a decent human being.

    1. Thanks Randy. You talk about politically correct and it’s something we must all be. It’s doing the right thing and us just being okay with each other.

      Asking how someone is, is what is needed here. Accepting that we’re all different. It doesn’t matter whether you have different beliefs to me, we just have to be okay and together.

      There is no excuse for anyone not being pc. It might be something years ago that wasn’t recognised, but today not being pc is widely recognised.

      It’s something society and the world must strive for together. This quote is absolutely politically correct.

  2. If only we all lived by this quote instead of all the ignorance and hatred we hear and experience daily.

    The lessons of history are being ignored and we are living those dark times again. It makes you sad to be part of the same species.

    1. Thanks, yes I can’t argue with the facts and I agree. I find it sad that we put culture before we do people.

      We all need to do more to just be okay with each other.

  3. I’m inclined to believe that the majority of us respect our differences, perhaps enjoy it. But some folks are hell bent on conquering and suppressing people, it’s all too familiar.

    But diversity helps me to become a better human being, simple as that.

    1. Thanks Tim. Yes, you’re right. It’s sad some people can be like that. I agree though that the more diverse we become, the more accepting of others we will be.

      For us to live in harmony with each other more of that needs to happen.
