When another treats you lowly it is a reflection of themselves, not of you. Oftentimes, those who treat you as incompetent are ignorant. Intelligence comes from knowledge. Wisdom is led by experience. Knowing when to utilize either is key. We are all of equal weight and uniqueness. #stuffraresays
One is not ever at an advantage over another. Don't make the mistake of thinking you have all the power and control in any situation. Your value is determined by your respect towards others. (No matter age, class, or creed) Live life to the fullest, love those who love you, and be kind to others. … Continue reading #stuffraresays
Be careful how you treat others. You may think you know more, and you may think your higher. The key: it is in that thinking that you know better, that says you dont. True maturity stems from understanding we don't know everything. ©Rareity #stuffraresays
Take caution when treading this thing we call life. At any given moment, you could do or say something that can forever change a person's view of you, or your view of them.

How often, do you create dreams, goals, and aspirations. Probably pretty often if you ask me. The true question is: How often do you let those desire's slip through your fingers?
