Respect is for those who deserve it, not for those who demand it. – Anonymous
Respect is one of the best things that a person can achieve in his life. If a person doesn’t earn any respect, it will be hard for him or her to live the life that they want in society. Similarly, respect is something that one can’t give to any random person. If you’re going to give respect to someone, he or she must earn it. It doesn’t matter what he or she does; one can’t just respect a person without any reason.
You may find that there are a lot of people who will demand respect from you. For instance, we have a notion that we should respect our elders, which is a good thing. But there are some elders in our life, who don’t deserve our respect. They have done something which deters us from respecting them.
Similarly, if you want respect from someone, you shouldn’t demand it. Instead of that, try to gain respect. Try to do those things that will help you to earn respect. You have to make sure that you are not doing any bad things in your life. Or else, no one will respect you.
Besides, love also comes from respect. If you cannot love a person, it will be hard for you to respect that person. And the same thing goes for you. If you want to gain respect in your life, you should make people fall in love with you first. After that, they will start respecting you gradually.
