RESPECT is EARNED through your ACTIONS, WORDS and the CHOICES you choose. Attempting to demand RESPECT is useless. Do YOU RESPECT YOURSELF?? If you do then others will as well :0) If however you do not RESPECT YOURSELF how then do you expect OTHERS to?
UNDERSTAND that RESPECT BEGETS RESPECT
Trying to strike fear in those whom you may have some type of authority over, be that work or personal, does not GAIN you their RESPECT. There is a HUGE difference between fearing and RESPECTING a PERSON. What you desire is RESPECT. EARN it by your POSITIVE ACTIONS and WORDS. But FIRST, EARN the RESPECT of YOURSELF. Look at the people around you. Do they RESPECT YOU or fear you??
RESPECT IS EARNED
