My Take on ......*Respect*

If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem.  By Abraham Lincoln
It is a simple word with a huge meaning. Respect means giving attention or consideration to someone.  We were taught by our parents to respect the elders, our friends, our schoolmates, our teachers, our grandparents, our relatives and the people we meet.  In school we were also taught by our teachers to be an example to the younger generation.  But when our parents let us fly on our wings, we socialize, encounter, met a lot of people from different walks of life.  Then one of the values that was enrooted on us was put to test.  For me it is as simple as, “If you want to be respected by others, you should know how to respect in return, don’t ask for it unless you know how to give one.”.  But in the first place you should know how to respect yourself so you will be able to respect others.
