yeah i think its different fom common courtesy, too

i think you earn respect if you are good in sth
it has sth to do with honor and that this person is admitted
for being good at sth or couraged or whatever

as i said its a latin word and i think they might used it in connection with reign.

i lost my latin book somewhere but i think its from "recipere"

the romans where not only respected because of their militairy
they were respected by building roads and sanitary buildings, too.

so the natural word has sth to do with good and bad reign :crazy:

anyhow you should earn respect for not being useless

but even the worst can be used as a bad example LOL

"earning" respect depends on the people who could give it to you

whereas wanting respect depends to you
(who wants respect of idiots ???)

quite a complex topic :blink:

thats all I know now :angel:

Bye :bye: Bye

Being charismatic is a good way to earn somebodies respect.Being nice is also another way, but sometimes people will just take advantage of you :not_ok:

Only if you allow them to. There's a fine line between doing what you're asked for and being able to decline at times.

Definitely by hard work. Giving respect to others is a good thing, but you'll never earn mauch respect yourself that way. You have to earn it.
