“I honor and validate my existence each and every day. As to having respect for others, I do have intellectual respect for a few people that I view as being intelligent and kind. But on a purely emotional level you are probably correct in saying that I have no respect for others. People are mirrors, I reflect back at society the sum total of what society reflected at me from my birth up until age
13. Nobody respected me, and now I respect noone, on an emotional level.
Take care, JOE”
