Respect give value to someones ideals

Respect is defined as to feel or show esteem or honor for someone or something.

  • An example of respect is being quiet in a cathedral.
  • An example of respect is truly listening to someone speak.
  • An example of respect is walking around, rather than through, protected wilderness.

Respect is a deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

Self-Respect

Respecting yourself means giving and defining your own worth and value as a human being. Think about this: if you do not respect yourself, it will be more difficult for you to respect anyone else. So it all begins with self-respect.

Respect for Others

Just like with yourself, when you demonstrate respect for others, you give value to their being and ideals. In addition, you’ll make someone feel good by granting them respect, provided, of course, that it’s something that they deserve.

One of the best ways to show respect for someone is to truly listen to another’s point of view. Obviously, we’ll not always agree with one another on every topic (and you should never adopt a point of view with which you do not agree), but we should allow each other to have and express our own views – regardless of whether we agree with them or not.


How Do We Show Respect For Others?

  • Listen. Listening to what another person has to say is a basic way to respect them.
  • Affirm. When we affirm someone, we’re giving evidence that they matter.
  • Serve.
  • Be Kind.
  • Be Polite.
  • Be Thankful.

Why is respect important?

  • Receiving respect from others is important because it helps us to feel safe and to express ourselves.
  • Being respected by important people in our lives growing up teaches us how to be respectful toward others.
  • Respect means that you accept somebody for who they are, even when they’re different from you or you don’t agree with them.
  • Respect in your relationships builds feelings of trust, safety, and wellbeing.
  • Respect doesn’t have to come naturally – it is something you learn.

To disrespect someone is to act in an insulting way toward them. When you disrespect people, you think very little of them.

Disrespect is all about not showing respect. Actually, it’s about showing the opposite of respect, by acting rude, impolite, and offensive.

Positive Affirmations You Should Tell Yourself

We all need Positive Affirmations in our lives. Every now and then, there are days when you just need a little pick-me-up. You can blame it on the weather, on the wrong side of the bed, that horrible thing that your co-worker said.

However, this doesn’t mean you should talk down to yourself and allow those negative thoughts to marinate. To combat those not-so-great feels, we curated a healthy list of positive affirmations you should tell yourself and bookmark so you can always come back to remind yourself just how awesome you are.

To make small steps toward big goals is progress.

Negative thoughts only have the power I allow them.

Today I choose to make my curses my blessings.
