How to Be Respectful?!

Treat others, as you want them to treat you. To earn respect you must first, give respect and give it to yourself too, as, if you don’t respect yourself, no one else will respect you. The stress of everyday life, we have forgotten morals & obligation of respecting others so that we are also respected in turn. If you can earn the respect of others, then it’s a life well lived.  Respect can never be forced as it comes straight from the heart. A person may respect another because of fear but that is not true respect.True respect only comes when you empathize with the other person, which will make him or her feel respected and so return the favor. Respect is the pillar that supports the bridge called relationship. To say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ doesn’t mean that you are being respectful.

Be kind. Showing kindness towards others is the best way, A simple act of kindness can show your respect towards others.

Listening & showing interest in whatever is said.

Good manners are the essential quality to showing respect, as people get a sense of respect, when they interact with a well-mannered person. Good behavior automatically earns the respect of others.

Don’t stereotype people, Stereotyping makes, you come across as a narrow-minded person. It also shows your lack of respect for the person, you are stereotyping.

Understand other peoples, like and dislikes.

Don’t dictate or belittle anyone because of his or her background, religion, or social status. It is not only ill mannered, but also signals bad breeding.

You cannot respect anyone whom you mock, or tease etc.

Apologizing for your mistake, can show how much you respect the other person. When you apologize for a mistake or a hurt you caused, conveys your sincere regret.

When you respect someone, you must also respect his choice and free will. So, don’t pressurize anyone to do something which he or she is not willing to do. Giving priority to someone’s right to choose, its respect.

To show respect, value other people’s opinion. This does not mean blindly follow whatever they say. You can show your understanding of his or her opinion, and then present your reasons for agreement or disagreement.
