Examples of besides in a Sentence

  1. Bruce Jenner:

    I trained hard, I competed hard and for that people respected me but this transition has been harder on me than anything I could have imagined and that's the case for so many others besides me, for that reason alone trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Christmas season is all about giving or rather it's a time of giving (tangible gifts, money or intangible gifts) to someone else or others. Thus, endeavour to be a blessing to someone else or others this season. Listen up, never claim that you don't have something to share with someone else or others. For, nobody is too poor to give. Yes! everyone has something to share with someone else or others. Besides that, God himself the author of true love gave us (humans) his ultimate and his best (his one and only son) the Grand Genius (Jesus Christ), in order to teach us (humans) how to give. COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON, anyway. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    What it takes to be a giver or philantropist is just a heart of gold. Yes of course, anyone who bears a heart of gold within himself or herself is bound to be philantropic or generous. Anyway, do you have a heart of gold or not? If Yes, then do you have anything to show for it? If No, then you've got to acquire it (a heart of gold ). Because, it pays to be philantropic or generous. Besides, no one has ever become poor just because of giving. And so, bet me you yourself cannot and will never become poor just by the reason of giving generously to someone else or others i.e. anyone or those who you are better off.

  4. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    It is up to you to make your choices. But mind you, your choices will surely and eventually make you or mar you. Yes! besides that, all other things being equal. Where you are in life presently is a sum total of the choices you have made in the past. Thus, always choose wisely. ~Emeasoba George

  5. Kim Kardashian:

    I don’t even know how to describe it besides, it’s just so f---ed up.
