Respect and Hate seems to find itself in the same sentence when it comes to the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Well that is what usually happens when there are people who admire you from afar or up close but will NEVER tell you how much they indeed admire you too!
I had to use a football theme because football seems to be America’s sport and the Pittsburgh Steelers have fans all around the world. Therefore if they follow the Steelers, than they also follow their rival (s) via who they don’t get along with. Rivalries seem to make good excitement for football fans and sends the Nielson Ratings through the roof which promotes great t.v.
However, playing the role of an obnoxious and disrespectful person for a short 60 minutes of football can drag your character in the mud eventually because the more that you play / become someone who you are not “for whatever reason”…those habits that you portray so well will eventually become who you are!
I don’t know why its harder for people to give compliments than give harsh words. Yes, I do understand via football that it’s a manly thing to be tough, be disrespectful seem rude ( NOT OBNOXIOUS, like Linebacker James Harrison >> geesh! )……. Sad to say but most people operate better when there is some type of rival or bitterness going on in their lives than peace and harmony!
So when you have people who you admire, why not take the high road and be the example. People speak negative when they cannot carry out what you have already done and their IMMATURITY prevents them from coming to you as and adult to have a grown conversation. Respect and Honor are two things that cannot be freely given but in the age of where CASH IS KING – people feel otherwise. Okay, go ahead and think about that for this Sunday’s game (s)….
