Self Respect and Respect For Others

Learning To Show Respect and Showing Respect To Others Is Part of Understanding Basic Respect

Self Respect and Respect For Others To Be Taught By Parents

It appears, as per observation, that much of people nowadays, lack "self respect" and "respect for others" and I'm only saying that because of the said observation. Many people continue to show that they lack character education about self respect and respect for others.

There really isn't much I can do about it, except for write about it, so as to increase a person's awareness that self respect and respect for others is missing in people I have observed. It is an unfortunate message to convey and quite negative, but still important.

Some families, the parents mostly, have time to teach Life Teachings and Character Education. Some families will not be able to teach self respect to their children and those children will grow up with no respect for themselves and no respect for others.

Show Respect and Showing Respect....

To begin, showing respect and the ability to show respect for others, is directly related to your character education knowledge. Should you not understand the basis of Character Education, then you will most likely not show respect to others, by showing no respect for yourself.

I respect myself, so I am able to show respect to and for others to others. There are times where no respect is warranted, and that is when people refuse to show respect or have any sort of self respect to begin with.

I live my life through character education knowledge, and the wisdom it provides. When I was a young man, my father did what he could to teach Life teachings, which included self respect and respect for others. Most of all, he wanted to convey respect for elders.

Teach respect and education self improvement

Many parents teach respect to their children and some do not. Thus, education self improvement falls upon the child as they grow, learn and experience life. Education self improvement is another aspect that parents should be teaching their children, so each can improve upon themselves.

Some children have to self teach respect, because it becomes a life's little lesson. Those who have power will demand respect be paid, because of their power and money. This singular status gives people a false ideology about their position. The power of money and the respect money deserves is something not many people understand completely. That is a shame in and of itself.

Those who do not understand power of money or the respect it deserves, are usually greedy people, with no respect. They are self-absorbed, obnoxious, arrogant and demeaning to others. Which is ultimately a sign of no self respect and a show of no respect for others.

Respect power and gain respectfulness...

Like I said above, respect power. Once you do, you'll gain respectfulness. Those who have power can do more than you can realize and having respectfulness towards them, is like bees to honey.

The easiest way to gain respect is through honest action. To do honest action is to completely understand character education or in other words...maintaining "Integrity" within oneself. Through this simple knowledge, you can self educate about the value of having respect for others. Thus, you in the end will have self respect.

Another message I would like to convey is how important self respect is in other aspects of your life. An example: When you go out into public, make sure you are dressed with respect. Not only respect for self, but respect for others. Other people have no need to see things that are better off left to the imagination. I've seen more and more people wearing their pants down to buttocks, which is a show of no respect for others and self. It is disgusting and foolishness.

Respect for elders.....

As I said above, having respect for elders is a simple way to gain respect from people. When you give respect to elders, people see that you understand that those elder people have the life experience and knowledge, and wisdom to openly share, and you are willing to accept it.

As an example: I used to know some elderly people, only because they lived in the same apartment complex, but nonetheless, as my parent told, if I wanted their respect then I was to show respect to them, before I had a right to get respect in return. I constantly talked with the elderly people, helped them with their groceries, open doors for them, help them up stairs and they would share things that they learned(knowledge) and experiences from their life.

The point is to understand that these people want to share what they have learned, either through education or life experiences with others, and whenever you have a chance to learn, it is an opportunity you should most certainly take advantage of at the time it is available. What they share will not come again, because each person's take on life experiences and what has happened to them is always different.

Power, Respect and Money....

Over the course of my life, my experiences have brought me to places where I have had to learn from powerful people, gain their respect so I could continue learning and even enjoy some of their money.

Most of the time, someone who has power and money, will openly share a kind of respect that cannot be shown otherwise. Giving them respect, because you understand their power and their ability to create money or generate wealth, or want to learn from them, then you could benefit in ways you might not realize.

You do not have to go out of your way to manipulate them, because if you try, then you get no respect from them. They will see it for what it is and most likely cast you aside, and not look back. You will not have access to their knowledge or experience and you will have paid them no respect whatsoever.

Men and Women with no respect.....

There are plenty of men with no respect, not for self or others. They play deceitful games with their own actions, so as to manipulate other men or women. It is a common occurrence, called "cat and mouse".

There are men who choose to spike a woman's drink or speak lies about their life, just so that they can get laid. It is a clear sign that they have no respect for women. When found out, they place blame on someone or something else. Not claiming responsibility is another sign of no respect for self.

There are also plenty of women with no respect, not for self or others. They dress up looking slutty or extremely provocative, so that they can manipulate guy/men, into doing things that they want. Again, the "cat and mouse" game gets played from both sides. But, again, it also shows no respect.

They go out in public wearing clothing best suited for the bedroom, like pajamas or slippers on their feet. As mentioned before, they are clearly showing that they have no understanding of self respect. Come on folks, show some common sense, respect for others and self-respect, whenever you do things, because when you don't, you look like a complete idiotic ignorant fool.

Thank you for your time.

We hear the word "RESPEC" (sic.) so often these days, as urban lingo, that it has lost its original import. It is important, and not just because a male who thinks he is alpha (and has a gun) expects one to give it automatically, without first earning it. Respect was instilled in me in my early years by my parents. Not as a false condescension but to show respect for oneself. Where has 'please' and 'thank you' gone. They were once the ending of sentences. No they are more 'PLEEEEASE' and 'THANK YOU!!!!!'. Us grumpy old men would like to see community respect, for that is where happiness lies.

Cagsil 6 years ago from USA or America Author

Hey Humagaia, yeah, like a guy with a gun deserves "RESPEC" or even respect. LOL! Many people are like that though....give respect and knows nothing about earning respect from having self respect. It would be great to have community respect, however, as I pointed out in my other hub, recently written for the challenge "Education" awareness and "Community" awareness level are so low at this point, that people simply try to live their life without bothering with others. That is the part that is becoming a detriment to the overall health and wealth of every community in America. I'm not exactly sure what it is like outside America, because I am focused on America getting changed. And, you would be right- Please and Thank you is gone from much of society nowadays. People want what they want and they want it however they can get it. Yet, another problem brewing. Thank you so much for reading and commenting. It was a pleasure to see you as always. :)

I liked your hub as it was right on target. We were taught respect as children and it was expected from the time we were young so it came very naturally. I notice if I smile and speak kindly to cashiers, or maybe help someone in line than I feel good about the encounter and more importantly you can see the other person respond back to you with kindness.

I observe people screaming at their children, while they are on the cell phone and the child obviously has missed nap time and so forth. What kind of adult will that child become?


Cagsil profile image

Cagsil 6 years ago from USA or America Author

Hey Pamela, I'm glad you liked it. And yes, when I was taught as a child, we're to have respect for others, especially respect for an elder. I too am in public and find that when you naturally pay respect without anything in return expected, you end up receiving kindness in return, regardless. I've seen parents screaming at their children in public and yapping away on cellphones, then when the child steps out of line or begins to cry(mostly due to a lack of sleep as you said), it makes you wonder the exact question you asked. So I'll even go a step further to answer the question- What kind of adult will that child become? I would have to say vicious, abusive and unruly. Most likely a troublemaker. I don't doubt it at all. Thank you very much for your compliment, visit, read and comment. It's always a pleasure to see you and hope you're doing well. :)

Have moved around the world and I see respect in many other countries, children have respect for their elders, themselves and their peers. But in the west I see that rapidly vanishing...

anonimuzz 6 years ago from There

A very good hub that addresses something I don't think we can ever have in excess. There are many times that I'm not respectful, and there are many times that others don't show respect to me. Either way, we all have room for improvement and this article reminds us of that. I also wonder, just like Pamela, how can kids grow up to be good respectful persons with families that don't give any kind of good example to them. I have two very good parents that knew how to set the example and show us the importance of having and using certain qualities. If I don't do it, it's because I don't want to. But children that don't have an example in their relatives don't really have a choice; they are probably going to have problems because of that at some point in their lives.


Cagsil profile image

Cagsil 6 years ago from USA or America Author

Hey LeanMan, that is the reason I've written the hub. There are plenty of people nowadays and I've seen it in my own community, that it is actually diminishing at an astonishing rate. It's a sad thing and the more I can make people realize it, the better. I see the impact I can make on people's life, and it doesn't matter who it is to be honest. Thank you very much for stopping by my hub and leaving a comment. Appreciated. :)

Anonimuzz, thank you very much for stopping by and reading, and commenting. And, I know Pamela does address a question and like I answered it, there will obviously be problems. The thing is many people do learn it as they get older and recognize the difference. Some willingly make the change to their life and some do not. Again, much appreciated. :)

Hi Cagsil, Respect, and respect for others is so very important. This hub is a great article! Today I notice when I show kindness, or compliment someone that I do not know they turn and look surprised. The younger generation has given a whole new definition to the word respect. I try to teach my niece and nephew how important it is to have character and self-respect. My Grandmother taught these core values to me. I find it difficult to get young people to understand the importance of self-respect, and respect for others.

Awesome hub Cagsil!


Cagsil profile image

Cagsil 6 years ago from USA or America Author

Hey Adrienne, I do find it to be very important. Hence, the hub. The other reason is because of what you said, the children now don't seem to understand it's importance. I have recently seen a surprised reaction to ordinary common courtesy, and I said you're welcome, because they said thank you. And the look on their face was shock. My mother and father taught me when I was younger and I tried to get my nieces to understand it, because my sister was instilled with the same teachings as I was when growing up, but she has failed to teach her own kids the importance. And, that I found appalling. However, the newer generation cannot be allowed to put a new face on it, because if it's changed, then the bottomline is going to be lost as well. I'm very much appreciative of your compliment and glad you enjoyed reading. I loved your comment too. So, I'm grateful as well. :)

Respect starts in the heart, not head and I believe you are spot on here. So very well said, and taught.

it is an instilled behavior, my Grandparents in my childhood days in Providence R.I. demanded it of me. I am so very gratefull they did that.

I lost a lot tramping up the dirt on my travels, but that one I always tried to kept. It is Important.

These Hubbs are really very well done. excelent work

Thank you very much Dutchman. I'm glad you enjoyed the hub and I appreciate the compliment. My parents instilled it in me as well. I've learned there is a time when respect isn't given and that's when people choose to be ignorant, instead of continuing to learn. I am grateful to you for reading and commenting. I hope you enjoy the others, as much as this one. :) It's a pleasure to meet you too. :)

I agree that respect is something that is missing from a lot of people's interactions. I do believe that we as people should show a base amount of respect to people, but I also believe that the majority of respect dished out in the world should be earned along with trust.


Cagsil profile image

Cagsil 5 years ago from USA or America Author

Thank you very much CheerAdvisor for reading and commenting. I would agree it is certainly missing, however, I also have come to the understanding that the problem stems from parenting children. The method many parents have used to teach children about character is one of the keys that happens to be missing. Yes, respect is earned and given, but respect has many different aspects, in and of, itself. Since we(humans) live in a world of duality it is important to understand civility is a respect that should always be given. Other forms of respect, like power and that of money, are something that should be understood. Respecting elderly people simply due to their experience in life is not to be earned but automatically given to them, because they have already earned it, just by living as long as they have. Again, I appreciate your visit. :)

Thought provoking. I sat on these words and remembered hearing much the same from my Dad about our generation. But it does seem to be getting worse. I call these kids the "Day Care Generation"; kids raised by strangers with no power to punish or correct misbehavior and disrespect other than kick them out of the center.

Children learn by their parent's example. If parents have respect for each other, older folks and those outside the home the kids will follow their ways. We live in a "me" society and looking out for number one seems to be the only interest.

Very well written and said Cagsil! Respect is SO important! I think it's obvious that self respect and respecting others is so lacking in the world today. Now it seems to be all about tolerance! That word to me has a negative connotation for some reason - like it's an angry sounding word - I must learn to tolerate! See? Lol

Look at customer service for example - people are so rude! Customer service used to have a positive connotation. - thinking about that word today - I bet everyone's BP rises:)

I try so hard to teach my kids to respect everyone - it's hard! It's a non stoo job it seems. It's also a lesson your kids will so be affected by just by watching the parent and how they behave in real life situations.

It's always great to see you and again we seem to be on the same page. :) I have a take on tolerance? It's in my hub The Main 5 Keys To Life. I agree that parents should lead by example, so that their actions match their words. To do otherwise, shows children bigotry and a double standard. :) :D


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 4 years ago from St. Louis, MO

Yeah! It really does...kids do not fall for that "do as I do - and not as I say!". They always replicate parental responses - or it's the exact opposite - they reject every single parents behavior but somehow - their behavior mimics the parents no matter what. Like - my step dad yelled all the time - that was how he punished us - it didn't work a bit - so I don't try that:) lol. I hate the sound of a raised voice. It just instantly makes my BP rise. I can't stand it - probably why I chose a soft spoken husband:) Either way all that yelling had a negative affect on me...cuz it still seriously annoys me to hear a person shout. And if I do - it means I've lost my mind! Haha!


Cagsil profile image

Cagsil 4 years ago from USA or America Author

I don't mind people getting loud. It's going to happen and I've done it from time to time, just to bring things back down to a calmer position so the conversation can continue. I can understand why you would see it as a negative thing, but always remember in duality there's always more than one view for it. ;) Thus, negative or positive. Everything can be seen in a negative light or a positive light depend on the individual's perception. Thank you again. :) :D


klarawieck 4 years ago

Nicely put, Cags! I know many people who think less of those who are rich. I tend to treat them in the same fashion I'd treat the custodians at my school. They're all the same to me. About clothes- I am always clean but I don't own a lot of clothes. So I might come across as being uncaring of my looks, which is of course, not true. I'm aways groomed and clean, but I don't care much for clothes or shopping malls.

This makes me think things through. We might not be what we wear, but looking good does help. Thanks.

Most of my clothes are so old, it's not even funny(but might be to some). I'm not one for shopping malls either. I don't mind shopping, but I'm usually in and out with what I want. I don't eye shop. It doesn't do any good. LOL! :)

It seems the world is becoming anti social. You can always count on me to be the person smiling and saying hi, good morning, afternoon, evening or what ever the time of day may be. It's amazing the people who look at me with surprise as you can tell they expect nothing of the sort in their daily routines. I spread common courtesy everywhere I go. This is my form of self respect and respect for others. Great read, Once again you've touched on a vital social need and lack there of. :) katiem2

I like this hub, reading it again seems like I hadn't read it before. I like the part about how to dress in public. Also if someone is not a patient person, or self disciplined, I know it is important to become so. As you say, you can learn from the elderly, I've always been pretty polite but didn't think of listening, really listening to them.

Great comments overall about respecting women and power- something a lot of people may not think to respect people with power to learn from them.

It does make a huge difference if you show respect to yourself and others; it will show in one's actions and one will stand apart and be admired often if they do these things. People may not know exactly why they like the person, but they will know they like them.

Great advice. I know I am learning still

Thank you

schoolgirlforreal 3 years ago from USA

Thank you, but I had not read its comments. Now that I have, I agree with katiem2 that the world is becoming anti social. Also, another thing that comes to mind is child rearing which a few people commented on. I have some nieces/nephews who have on occasion, some more than others, been very out of control because of the parent, my sister's, lack of child rearing. For example, I have one niece who is now 6, who at a younger age put cheese curls in the cat dish, poured car oil- according to my brother- on the basement floor, and various other things without any correction on my sister's part (her mother.)

The child became almost bullylike in behavior. I wanted to have nothing to do with her. Thankfully she has improved with age.

This is why I've always said, if I have children, they would be polite, because I would require it and because if you don't do so, or take the time to do so, in the end you will pay for it by the bad behaviour they will have etc etc.

Hello Cagsil,

Nice to meet you.

I'm new here at hubpages and I came across your hub today.

There are so many ways to respect oneself and others, you might say. Some of those ways that you have demonstrated here I had not thought of before.

As a young adult I was taught respect to elders and to self. Then as I got older somehow it fell by the wayside, but not in all areas. Sometimes I just forgot to give respect or get it, and I didn't realize the value I might have received by doing so.

Today at the store for example, I try to be cordial when I feel I can and I do notice I get a good response. Sometimes I cannot help my moodiness but I try to be cordial anyways.

I do have the idea I got from someone to go to a cashier I'd feel more comfortable with such as an older woman, not a teenager since I'm in my thirties and I would connect more with someone of a more mature age. I notice that young women are often into looks and don't show much respect, some but not all.

So I find that when I connect with people say of the older or more respectful kind, even on a bad day for me it is much easier for me to relate to them and so I try to do that.

Respect for oneself and others is often overlooked and when thinking about specific things it's enlightening really as to how you can benefit so much.

Thank you for a good hub.

Cagsil 3 years ago from USA or America Author

Thank you very much Freedomspirit for reading and commenting, as well as, the compliment. It can be difficult to relate to people on many different levels. We don't all see eye to eye on individual perspectives or perceptions. Usually because, there's way too much ego in the way at the time. I learned about self respect and respect for others via my parents and for the most part I've always pushed the boundaries of what respect means. I understand your example and I'm mostly cordial to others, especially in public. It was a pleasure to meet you as well. :) I'm grateful for your time.


freedomspirit 3 years ago

Oh, I see. Yes pushing the boundaries of respect is quite an interesting concept as in how much more value there is to be obtained in doing so, with the natural reciprocation in most cases. That's pretty amazing. It had never occurred to me that doing little things for people like the elderly can not only earn you respect from them but they teach you little bits of wisdom as well. You go beyond anyone I've ever heard of in the category of respect. So much so, that it is an amazing skill and not to mention likeable as well. Oh the power in good behavior!!! Good day to you sir!

I find it a lot easier now to have more respect for myself and others because I got off a medication that backfired and made me angry :( I'm so glad that's been resolved. Then I found out I had severe medical condition....and I got on a med for that last month and everything , I mean everything has improved in my life greatly- by feeling good thus my relationships, all of them are more healthy which is the best in my life yet. I'm grateful for this most desired and welcome change, finally.

Now that I feel better, I still use my will to practice self respect for myself and others and though it's much easier, and easier for me to have good relationships, it's still a skill or trait that needs to be exercised of course. Imagine how difficult it is though, for people who are moody!!!

I am much more patient and when I have those days from time to time when I feel irritable? I just take a long walk, and spend some quality time alone :)

Hey Tamron, long time no see and hear. Always a pleasure to see you. :) And yes, many kids nowadays don't stand a chance because of the environment they live in doesn't give them a chance.
