    Treating another person with the same dignity as an human being though you may disagree with them on different issues or opinions. As human beings we are all the same down to the core of our beings: LOVE PEACE FREE.

    what respect means to me?

    respect is -for example knowing someone in your close circle of friends has a problem that you have knowingly been told about and that that particular friend has instructed you not to breathe a word about it to anyone. if you have a genuine friend who you can trust then you know deep down in your heart you have their respect in your wishes. 

    hope that makes sense

    Understanding the thoughts, feelings and values of others then in turn adhering to, or accepting these said factors regardless of whether you personally believe in them or not. Equally showing someone compassion, equality and dignity implies that you would hold appreciation for this person.

    Respect means being taken seriously. If someone is being demeaned or patronized, they are not respected. When we treat a person as though they have lesser importance than someone else because of their situation or status in life we don't respect them. We need to be willing to show appreciation or consideration to everyone, including those we know really well. Often the ones we love get the brunt of our disrespect because we know all their faults (as well as their strengths) and we think we have the right to expose these in them. We need to offer everyone the respect they deserve whether life circumstances (or even bad choices) has put them in what we think is a "lesser" place than us. Life can change very quickly and we might be in their position one day. Perhaps respect fits in with the saying, "Do unto others what you'd have them do to you." If we treat others the way we want to be treated, then we can't go wrong.

    Sensitivity to a situation, person and acknowledgement of age in years.  In my culture we respect our elders no matter what as we acknowledge that they have lived longer on this planet and their souls are older.
