I have come across a good number of folks who carry the typical slogan of ‘RESPECT ME !” It is surprising to know that some people desire to acquire this cherished gift with almost cipher intention to pay it back. They seem to be totally oblivious of the fact that this gift can be received only when it is lent ‘genuinely’.
To ‘Respect’ someone is a conscious and a sensible decision that a person makes. It isn’t some wavy feeling that will fleet away like a fish in the tides of time. Reverence is ‘constant’ and that is why it is a ‘conscious decision’.
We must learn this harsh truth that we can never become the possessors of this beloved asset if we do not encompass the same for ourselves as well as for the others.
Do consider this before you demand respect out of someone.
