What is Respect to you guys?
Could it simply be the kneel-down-to-greet-me everyday gesture from a younger person to an older person? Could it be the worship-me-for-I-am-great personality kinda? Or could it just be the admire-me-let-me-be-your-mentor kinda attitude of fellow persons?
Respect can mean a whole of different things from various perspective amongst categories of individuals and in different situations as places permit.
Respect is due reverence, loyalty and inner admiration for something or someone, simply put. But it sure goes beyond just those in application of gesture. Respect can be when you expect someone to show a form of recognition for a wrong act done by that person, not necessarily apologizing, but the fact that this person acknowledges that something was wrongly expressed could just mean to the offended person that he/she has been shown a little respect… Dignity! Yes, I think that’s the most appropriate word for that expression – Dignity. It is simply protecting the pride of the next person, and I must say to you here that it is way different from being proud… those are two very distinct personality.
Having pride/dignity is a level of self-esteem and worthiness, not a reproachful act as being proud/ snobbish.
Respect isn’t always just the stand-still-let-me-pass-before-you-can do-anything kind of thing. No, it goes a long way past that. Neither is it just about the age, class, level, sex or whatever you may have or do thing.
Respect they say is honor, an attitude of consideration or high regard for good opinion or prestigious somebody. Respect is – because you admire and put somebody or something in high accord/ esteem. Respect is- you place a level of priority, then you are sincerely polite and acknowledging of a fellow person’s act and words and values and principles. Respect could be about you seeking the opinion or approval on something from somebody you hold dear to your heart or have value for.
Respect isn’t the shallow bow-down-and-worship-me usual kind of view from the populace. Respect I must say, based on experiences encountered from a sample of persons runs deep and beyond just the surface, and when you lose it would take a lot more than the usual to regain… just as Trust, and so I plead you who is being accorded the respect to even so, Respect it as it is being given (I hope you follow what I mean here).
Respect to me is RECOGNITION, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, SINCERE and TRUTHFULLY HONORING of a VALUABLE PERSON or CERTAIN SITUATIONS as the atmosphere would justly permit.
Respect, What is Respect to you? You can also put in scenarios… Thank You.
