A Respectful Definition

Giving respect is restraining oneself from crossing a person’s line of safety even when they drop their guard.

Todd Beal

Whether we have respect for someone or not, returning disrespect for disrespect makes us commit the same offense, inviting him or her to return in kind.  When we give respect, we are building our self-respect which builds a promise of safety for all who interact with us.

About Todd Beal

I love truth and its facts. I love thought-provoking conversations that give both the other person and me a better understanding of a particular topic. I love to find answers to life-long questions; answers that let me see things for what they are instead of what they seem to be. I truly enjoy being in the midst of a group of people where all individuals are joining in, where everybody is enjoying the company of each other. I relax in the company of individuals who are competent yet humble. I like to catch myself doing or saying something ridiculous and then laugh my head off. I enjoy my church and being involved.
