There are some cases that we feel we are not given due respect.
PERHAPS BY FRIENDS OR OTHER PEOPLE AROUND US.wHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU FELT THAT YOU WERE DISRESPECTED AND HOW INTENSE IS IT?
wHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO OVERCOME IT?
I am very petite and look young for my age, so I feel disrespected quite often. I admit that I get defensive sometimes when I feel others are treating me like a child. To overcome this problem, I try to make myself look as professional as possible by wearing well-fitting, professional clothing and by being assertive when I need to be.
oh your cool collegecareerlife. I like your answer. you must be an optimist
When I was pregnant, I felt that my boss at work was discriminating against me because of it. Before I got pregnant, I could do no wrong in his eyes, but as soon as I told him I was pregnant, he started finding problems with everything I did. Eventually, he cut my hours down to 0 (without firing me), and told me that he didn't have enough work for me....but then he would hire someone else to do what I was doing. Eventually, I told him off and left the job. Then, I lodged a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the Human Right Commission.
I can identify with Collegecareer as I teach too.
A few times it's been Men from (particular places in the world where women don't tell men what to do)
I always overlook it, as I don't want them spoiling my teaching session, then later sit them down and explain that I am not there to dictate to them, but to support/help. They soon change attitude and before the end of the Course, we get on well.
Another Lady, was disrespectful to me sometime ago (years back) and as usual I just held my cool and didn't even bother, cos I normally get on very well with students and it was obvious to all that she was in the wrong.
Well, the next day she walked into class with a bunch of flowers and apologised.
Just one of those things... There's always gonna be 1 or 2 people who will upset you at work. It happens.
Age has been the largest discriminator I've seen. As a young engineer, my opinion was often passed over for that of a "greybeard", who had more experience than I did, even though my opinions may have been valid and indeed an improvement.
I give everybody a fair shot but often I find younger people don't realize the difference between youthful enthusiasum and knowledge.
I guess I have never felt that way, because I have never thought of that question. Maybe I have never felt that I was important enough to feel especially respected.
On the other hand, I don't pay a lot of attention to what other people think of me personally, as long as I respect myself.

President Obama has been the subject of blatant and hostile disrespect. To so many people, President Obama seems to do nothing right.....well, at least in THEIR eyes. It seems that President Obama has been the MOST DISRESPECTED president thus far. We may disagree with the...
