So I had an interesting talk about “respect” with a close male family member of mine tonight. Well I say “talk” it was more him texting me saying how I don’t respect him because I didn’t drop all my plans, even though we went out of our way to make other plans, it just wasn’t possible, because he’s family and I was told to “grow up” and he’ll talk to me then.
Respect is an interesting thing, it makes me curious that people who NEVER treat you with respect, expect it in return. It’s an interesting thing when a person will try to passively aggressively publicly ostracise you, but then turn into a whimpering mess when you hit back at them. It is interesting with how many people will say “Oh well, that’s just them” So it’s alright for them to do that, but it’s NOT alright for me to stand up to them, because that’s who I am.
I think in this world of today, you really have to know who you are. People these days seem to change with what ever works easier and no one wants any “drama”. Then I go and watch a show like “Band of Brothers” and think to myself “How would these guys feel about the generation of today” Would they think “This is what we died and suffered for? So someone could post a picture that isn’t even there own picture, and not even there own words to prove how there better than somebody else”…It’s pretty pathetic really.

All the interviews with the soldiers from the amazing tv series Band Of Brothers. I’ve never had any direct experience of war and i found these interviews really compelling and deeply moving.
