Love, Honour and Respect By Lorraine Penn

It is easy saying that you love someone, especially if you are an affectionate person, but to love, honour and respect them in the way you want to be loved, honoured and respected can be difficult for some people to achieve.

If you are someone with compassion, it is not difficult to show love, but not everyone can demonstrate this openly towards the other person. They maybe inhibited and just cannot show how they feel towards the other person.

How can you change this, or do you really try?

Would the person you are trying to change by coaching them how to be affectionate take them out of their comfort?

Do they actually want to be more affectionate anyway? does their inner personality prohibit this?

All very difficult to understand when you don't have any difficulty showing affection yourself.

Honour is about your own beliefs and if you are a honourable person then this is not a problem.

Respect is about how you respect yourself and depending on that you can either respect other people easily or you have no respect for yourself, then how can you respect others?
