Do we really know what “RESPECT” is ?
Our modern society is based on many principles, and laws that we follow and abide by; like the notion of respect; in order to live in harmony and create the most effective and productive system possible.
Since society is composed of individuals, we find that the actions and thoughts of each and every one of us have an impact on our societies. In a group, if a member decides not to live by its rules, not much time will pass and every other member will want to do as his mind says, chaos will take place and the destruction of that group would be assured.
This article is about respect, a notion that is known for great men, bright minds and ingenious people. A man/woman that respects others is a man/woman that respects himself/herself first.
So what is the notion of RESPECT? What’s its core? And what’s its impact on society?
First, you cannot respect others if you don’t respect yourself! The link between you and yourself is the first you have ever created. Self-esteem, self-love, and self-respect are the pillars to a balanced individual. Love yourself, be the best you can be and respect the efforts that you are providing and give yourself some credit.
Respecting oneself will little by little become a way of life, for example: I cannot throw trash on the street because in my eyes it’s disrespectful to me before been disrespectful to society. I cannot hit a woman because then I would have killed respect…
It’s not just about understanding what respect means and where it came from! One should assimilate respect in his brain, digest it and get accommodated with it. With time, it starts to come naturally, respect is now flowing in your veins.
On another hand, we will talk about respect and the relation that an individual has with society (other individuals). You all should know that respect is earned and not forced. We can’t force someone to respect us, and we can’t foul them into it!
Your actions and behaviors are the mirror of the way you think, of the ideas that your mind give birth to, and of the laws and principles you live by. Respecting others doesn’t just mean to leave others in peace and not have interaction. On the contrary, it’s all about that contact and those interactions while keeping in mind that we are equal and that respect is only natural, respect other people’s thoughts, opinions and point of views.
We all experience the impact of respect, either in its presence or its absence. We feel how the picture changes when the subject at hand is a notion that reaches everyone, daily and continuously.
IN ORDER FOR YOU TO BE RESPECTED, YOU MUST RESPECT YOURSELF! RESPECT OTHERS EVEN WHEN THEY DON’T RESPECT YOU! BECAUSE AT LEAST YOU RESPECT YOURSELF!
KEEP THAT IN MIND BECAUSE IT IS THE CORE OF RESPCT.
