_While checking out some of Anthony's pictures online (also known as Facebook stalking) I came across this really awesome photo of him that does not reflect his normal demeanor. Initially I made a piece for him in his more happy manner, but this picture touched me so much that I had to express it in my own way.
So many times when I am approached in a disrespectful manner the saying "let me reintroduce myself, because clearly you do not know who I am" comes to mind. I am sure you can relate to being approached by someone in a style that shows little to no diplomacy and not even the slightest scarcity of etiquette: this can tempt you to loose your composure as a reaction. At most reminding a person that you are not owned by them and that respect can be lost easier than it is given helps to keep their ego in check when approaching you. That reminder comes from a simple "stern straight face" or "reintroduction". Reacting to that person by treating them the same way they are treating you in their ill faded approach can only lead to unnecessary anguish and tension. Unfortunately, shutting down and allowing someone to speak to you in a disrespectful manner without addressing the tone of their approach can be a disservice to your self-esteem. Instead of yielding to that person's emotion one way or another (misery loves company) sometimes its best to "reintroduce" yourself through the facial expression alone.
Just like Anthony and the joy he has for life, you are too amazing to let anyone take away from your awesomeness or desire to have joy and peace in your life. Whenever, you are faced with nonsense take a moment to reintroduce yourself and all the best to you.
