Your Journey of Self-Respect

Kindred, 

I fear my tone lately is harsher than I normally would prefer.

I understand that at times you feel uncertain, insecure or even fearful.  

We have all been there, because we are human.

We cannot live without experiencing the full human experience of emotions, heartbreak in tragedy and heartwarmth in triumph.

The greatest tragedy is never learning to be better or learning to overcome challenges of character, having self-worth or self-esteem and never having courage under fire.

The greatest triumph is simply to survive and endure all with some measure of grace and wisdom.  

The journey to self-respect (with the Lord) begins with a simple step, in the warmth of your heart and the goodness of your will in love and peace.



Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
