Full disclosure! Right now in my life, I’m having an interesting go of it. Nothing is wrong to the point that I can’t handle, but, as I said, things are very interesting for me right now. All of this thinking and interesting living has got me thinking. What is it that I deserve? And in asking that question, I want you to ask yourself the same. The reason that I asked myself this is because so often, after letting someone in on a portion of your life, the person might say something to the effect of either “well, that’s what you deserve” or “you don’t deserve that.” Which got me thinking, depending on the situation, what exactly is it that I deserve? As human beings, I think that we all deserve the right to be free, loved, cared for, respected, seen, and heard. Sure there are plenty of other words to describe how a person should be treated but let’s begin our conversation there. In a relationship, whether it’s romantic or platonic, these same rules apply. And let’s dive deeper into each one of these words. Freedom. No matter your view of world politics or the geo-economic climate of the world. When you are born, you are free depending on where and when that may change circumstances some. But think about it as far as any living thing. What is freer than a newborn living being? As soon as a baby is born, they cry cry cry! With not a care in the world. When they are born, some animals just jump up and go straight to walking and sometimes running and or swimming. The point to think of here is how awesome it is to witness a newborn, anything, being free. It’s a beautiful and refreshing sight to see! Love. There are so many different types of love. Family, friends, romantic, objects are all different types. And no matter the relationship, if you have one with someone or something, it receives love, and if it is able should have the decision to offer it back. In this instance, I’m speaking of pets. We all have had a pet or something that cannot tell us, but more show us how much it loves us. Just think of your dog running up to you and licking your face on any day you have come home. This is your pet’s way of showing your love. Even cats. Just think when the cat brings you a mouse. That can be considered the cat’s interpretation of love. From what I have read and learned from other people, cats bring mice to you to show you that if they wanted to, they could easily kill you and have you dangling in their mouth as well. But the fact that they don’t kill you we will look at as the positive here. The point is no matter the type. We all deserve love from other living beings. Cared for. This can also go along with love, but for this writing, we will separate it. Being cared for is something that I feel that we all deserve. It’s hard to claim that you love someone or something you don’t even know or have never encountered. But our ability as humans to care for other living things is divine. The first thing that I think of when caring for a person we don’t know is our willingness to help a person who might have fallen in front of us. Or when we see someone in danger, we jump to meet that danger face on and help our fellow in need, even in some of our careers. Think of Doctors, Nurses, Police Officers, Firefighters, Paramedics, and those that work in nursing homes. Just naming a few of these professions but these are careers that require that we care for others. And it is a trait by other humans that we deserve to have cared for no matter what. Respected. Just in the plain sight of another person, a person deserves to be respected without prejudice until they have offered a reason not to. Now sometimes, certain people and individuals in our society might not command, demand, or deserve the respect that another human can offer. But until something has happened, respect for not only others but for ourselves should be paramount. In all honesty, I feel that the offering of respect would solve many of the issues that we have in our society today. There is often such a lack of respect for others without even knowing that it instantly leads to unnecessary conflict. If we all just took a minute to show respect for our fellow humans and our surroundings, more negative situations could be avoided. Being seen and being heard. These two traits could probably be separated, but again for the sake of this writing, I will discuss them in combination. Being seen and heard are very close to being respected, especially on that level where a person may initially recognize another individual in their space. But being seen is at a minimum of what we deserve as people. Being seen is so completely basic that you don’t even have actually to see a person to be seen. Being seen is just simply recognizing someone’s existence and their right to live or even be around. Being heard is a bit more in-depth because it takes the effort of another party to receive what someone might be saying. What I’m speaking about as far as being heard is when someone calls out to you in just a simple acknowledgment that that person is heard. It’s a simple “Hi” on the street. It’s a simple “Excuse me” while walking past. Or one of the most important. A “Thank you” for possibly holding a door or offering a cart at the grocery store. In conclusion, of the positive that we deserve, this is my most basic list. Again being transparent, this is just me sitting down to get some things off of my chest. With positivity, sure, there has to be some negative. And at times, for some of the bad or incorrect actions that we take, we deserve not so good things to happen to us. Punishment in the form of fines, fees, or correctional facilities comes to mind when I think of breaking a law that we know is a law on purpose. But again, sometimes, even with these extreme measures of punishment, we don’t deserve them as well. In reality, the entire subject can be discussed in a complete and never-ending circle. With that being said, if you have a comment to add to this discussion, please reach out and let me know what you think. Let’s have a conversation. If you found any value in this quick writing, please like, comment, or share. And until next time, I’ll type to you later. Sevy
