If you give respect to someone, do you feel that you deserve respect from them in return?
I strongly agree with the statement; Respect is earned and not given. So how does one truly earn respect? If you give respect to someone, do you feel that you deserve respect from them in return?
I think respect is earned over time. I think initially you're cordial to someone but after a while respect is earned to me through actions, intent, and attitude.
I have to admit I often feel I do deserve respect if I give it, but I know that respect has to be earned so I'm usually quietly disappointed and wait until the other person shows it too.
I "expect" that they would give me the time of day..........
They may not value me as I do them, but total disregard is both, disrespectful, and unprofessional.
You are never required to like me, but you are expected to adhere to my expertise.
It will all come to play in time............
I believe that everyone deserves respect, but there are some people who lose the priviledge.
I personally live by the golden mean and by the golden rule. This is to say that I would never ask someone to do something for me that I would not be willing to do for them first, and I would not treat someone in a way that I would not like to be treated.
