Rodney Dangerfield: Can’t Get No Respect

I was told once that in the world of politics, to get 55% of the vote in an election is considered a landslide victory.  Now whether 55% is really a land slide victory or not, the idea of victory always sounds good. The idea of a “landslide” victory sounds impressive, until I considered the other side of this number.  It’s actually saying that 45% of the votes went the other way.  45% of the voters didn’t like the eventual winner.  They wanted someone else.

When dealing with anger remember, every one is not gonna like you. Some people will outright disrespect you.  Anger is an emotion, that’s it that’s all.  How you deal with that emotion is your call.  There are people who remained unhappy for the eight long years that Mr. Bush was in the presidential office. There are many people who are disgruntled about the current man who holds that seat of power.  There are people who don’t like the fact that you have the type job that you have, the position you hold, or that you occupy space, breathe air and they gotta look at you.

You just can’t get no respect.  Comedian Rodney Dangerfield made a career pointing out the disrespect others had for him.  Instead of becoming angry, Rodney laughed all the way to the bank!  Dwelling on the naysayers in your life is not productive.  Accept the fact that no matter what you do, what you say or who you are, you will have your share of haters.  That’s just the way it is on planet Earth.

I hope the time you spent with me just now has been worth while.  Please leave me a comment in the reply section below. I’d like to hear from you.

See you at the next post and until then…Have A Great Day!

    It’s alright to be angry, as long as that anger doesn’t cause us to loose control of our emotions. I thank that you have a good point here, things are going to happen to trigger our emotions, people will like you or they don’t, you will like them or you don’t. It is not that person they don’t like anyway, it is what they do or don’t do. So life must go on, and we must take the sweet with the bitter. Ask God for strength and keep climing up the latter even though you can’t see the the end.
