Default Respect?

What is your definition of it? I'd like to know everyone's opinion on it. But before you answer think about this first, should you respect someone who denies your worth or your existence? Should you respect someone who just downright belittles every second they get and won't consider your feelings? Should you respect someone who doesn't appreciate the little things you do?

You can respect someone in different ways. For example, you can respect someone's work ethic and success, yet still think they're a giant piece of **** for belittling you and being an all-around asshole.

I've always been a firm believer in granting respect to all I encounter and treating people how I'd like to be treated... until they do something that earns my contempt. Then it's on.

There's no 'should'. You either do, or you don't. why you do or do not is the question here. Can you respect the people in the examples you give? Do you want to, and if so, why?

I'd ask that you speak more plainly. What's up, lady?

Lately my grams and I haven't spoken and it was a year ago when she had surgery. The reason we don't speak as of late is because New Years Eve she decided to open her mouth and call my father and I evil bastards because we didn't care about her surgery and the pain she was in. It broke my heart to a point where I decided not to speak about it to her because she's always in denial. Granted this is not the first or last time she's insulted us. I appreciate all the things she's done for us and I never failed to tell people that. I would be a little brat if I never seen that. But for all the times I've been there when she needed and the tears I've cried for her when I had the worst thought I would lose her I couldn't take the abuse she was putting me through. Even if I would have cried in front of her about it she still would have said those words to me.

It's perfectly possible to love someone without loving what they do. It's just difficult. You have to decide if you can do that, and whether or not you want to.

Put up with what you can put up with. Don't put up with what can't put up with. It's your call.

Also, what cheat said.

I will always be respectful to someone I meet for the first time, and give them time to make an impression. After that it's up to them whether they keep that respect, earn more, or lose it. Of course it's not always that black and white. I can respect some aspects of what a person does, even if I don't respect some. It's not really an absolute scale.

Lady, as humans get older, they feel the need to be wanted & thought of exponentially (<spelling) i know this from watching my grandma always crying & saying "Nobody cares about me anymore" up until the day she passed.

I wish now that i could have spent everyday with her to make her not think that way. Lot's of attention is the only way to try & make your Gram stop being this way. I know your family is like mine in the fact that our families become more distant over time. It just happens.

It's a hard thing keeping a family close, but it's equally as hard getting over your own hangups and staying close through the uncomfortable times. I've become more introverted over the years so quality time with the Fam is getting kinda uncomfortable for me. Maybe we all have this trait even though we choose to say we don't.

I've never studied human emotional sciences but i know i'm right.

Courtesy, tact, patience and modesty.

Some people are disrespectul only because they were raised by disrespectful people. They don't know what respect is because they've never experienced it. They think this is their world and everyone else is below them.
