First I hate rhetorical qusotiens such as this. My mind goes into a complete blank. I can give the same old cliche9 answer that anyone will give such as Respect has to be earned . But how is that done? In retrospect to earn respect it has to be understood, and where does that come from? Is it innate or a learned behavior, each of us has our own definition of where it comes from. I for one believe that respect comes from both, in the very young respect comes from more in the form of fear and as we mature respect is instilled in us as we begin to understand the world and the people around us. I truly don't believe one ever knows what respect to others are until they learn to true meaning of self-respect for themselves. How many of us can say with certainty that we respect our parents or people in authority without a tinge of fear in that respect. Yes we may respect our parents out of love (maybe), but does that include the police, our boss, and people in higher authority over us? Is that true respect or is it more fear based because we fear what will happen if we did not display it? When one learns what is it that they want from other people in terms of respect, how they want to be treated they begin to formulate within themselves that it is only correct to treat others as they would want to be treated. True respect is a learn behavior that is observed and reinforced on a daily basis, even within oneâ€™s own self.It can become stronger or weaker depending on the circumstances that a person is experiencing in their lives. When a person cannot find the love for themselves, it becomes very difficult for them to display it back to someone else in the form of respect.I believe that I respect everyone in the way that I know I want to be respected, it is as solid as a rock, never in my life would I purposely go out to disrespect anyone for any apparent reason. That is not the person I choose to be, for me that is disrespect to my very core of myself. I do inspire respect from others as I hope that I inspire respect to everyone that I come in contact with. This is where I believe that respect is innate, it has to come back to remembrance, and it has always been with us and is encoded within our souls.
