"The physical embodiment of arrogance, entitlement, disrespect and contempt for our parliament."
We put the need to respect other people first, sometimes disrespecting who we are in the process.
I have been following Holly Willoughby because I actually quite like her daily posts detailing her outfits (I probably need to get a life!). She does post more than that, and I quite like it all. It's a nice page to have pop up on your news feed - not controversial or intense (although I follow plenty of those pages as well).

I was at my daughter's nursery graduation recently (yes, they have those now), there was a man in his 50s hired as a party entertainer (let's call him Mr E) for the children. Now, I'm almost certain that he didn't intend to be sexist, but sexist he was.
Imagine that you're walking down the street, you're minding your own business when somebody 'different' catches your eye. Maybe they're in some way disabled, maybe their gender isn't immediately clear, maybe they're heavily tattooed, like myself, or they could be covered in piercings.
To date raising all the children is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. It's been an honour for me to have raised them the best I could. I can honestly say hand on heart I've given it my best shot - also to watch them become happy adults has been everything I had hoped for.
This was not a stand-alone situation though. This friend is notoriously late all the time and their pathetic punctuality was particularly pronounced this day. I should have known better but like most people, I try to see past it rather than come down on said person like a barrage of bricks. But one time, two times, three times, finish. NEXT!
