Rory asks for Friday Fun
**What is more important to you – to be ‘Liked’ or to be Respected?’
I think I’d rather be liked than respected. And anyway in my mind these two are linked together. You cannot dislike a person you respect and you usually respect a person you like. Or do we?
** What do you believe to be the difference between admiration and respect or do you find them to be the same?
Admiration is quite different from respect. We can admire different qualities in different people but we may not respect them as the people they are as a whole. We can admire a sharp mind, a witty tongue, or a wicked sense of humor but we may not respect those people as a package deal.
** Likability and friendship are two different things. Being likable to many is great, but being a great friend to a few (or one) is rare – what do you think to that statement – true or false, agree or disagree?
I think it’s true. Trying to be likable is futile anyway. Be a good and sincere friend to a few! Besides, I think trying to be likable is a juvenile ambition and one should outgrow it as we mature.
How uniquely YOU are you in a world filled with variations of you anyway – what seperates YOU from the rest of the world and makes you Youniquely You??
We all are alike in many aspects and unique in a few. There are no two people who are exactly the same in the world. Even identical twin aren’t the same, personality wise. So even if my kids have inherited some of my personality features, they all are unique and different as I am.
What makes me unique is all the quirks and twists that I have either developed in the last 58 years or was born with. My way of talking, thinking and behaving is what makes me unique. And of course it includes how I write my blog!!!!
