Respect is what we want from others, we want them to respect our ideas, lifestyles, beliefs and ultimately every piece of our puzzle. The major disconnect seems to be in our eager willingness to except it and our reluctance to give it. We find ourselves shocked at the fact everyone is unenthusiastic in their use of respect towards us, when we ourselves neglect to give the example of how we expect to be treated. It all boils down to respect for ourselves and others. Without it, confidence can drop, morals and values take a back seat and suddenly we are stuck in the age old dilemma where we won’t be courteous unless treated with such. A word to the wise: treat others the way you except to be treated and life will be much more fulfilling.
