Respect

June 12, 2017

Google give the following definition (there’s more but this is enough for this article):

“a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

I find the derivation of interest: “from re- ‘back’ + specere ‘look at.’” It is kind of like a second look. Would not failing to give someone a second look be disrespect?

I also like the song “Respect“, it is very up beat!

 

Respect in Life

I was talking to a young man who had encountered a bully. He had stood up to him and the bully backed down. The young man said that he was not giving the guy any respect now.

I gently got him to look at the fact that failing to respect was the exact action of the bully. I also got  him to look at what comes around goes around and suggested that he respect the man regardless. After all, if he wants respect, he should give it.

He agreed as he understood.

 

How to Earn Respect?

What I had mentioned to the young man above is an excellent way to earn respect. If you give respect, you earn respect.

Bullies may be feared but they are not respected.

Anyone who aids my life has my respect.

Anyone who is around me has my respect. After all, it is my decision to respect and grant importance to others or not. Who doesn’t have some worth in life? Perhaps, the criminal, many politicians, and psychs are such a drain to life they have a negative value to everyone.

The criminal becomes criminal when they lose respect for themselves. Perhaps a little honest respect, could help them. That would be a case by case situation where I would have to evaluate are they more immediately destructive than I’m willing to tolerate?

 

Relationships

Relationships are built on trust and communication. If you wish a relationship to survive, I believe it is wise to respect your partner!

I always give my wife respect. If I disagree with my wife, I communicate to find out what I don’t understand or perhaps what she doesn’t understand. By using respectful communication, agreements are achieved and upsets are prevented!

I find I’m respected broadly as I contribute to life and livingness around me. I pull people up and try never to push them down. I respect others, their opinions and viewpoints (right or wrong 🙂

So give people a second glance of respect and see if things get better in your relationships in life.

Routinely I say #EverythinWill_B_OK! I believe that is true!

Also, “A person is only as valuable as he aids others in their games of survival!” Quoting myself 🙂
