Hmmm. I think a person should work hard to improve himself. then other people will notice him and respect him for what he is and for his ability to improve himself. Try for a year if it doesn't work #1 would get the job done

For this theme I should say that respect is what you have to earn by work or etc. After all - RESPECT IS EVERYTHING.(from GTA2).

I show people respect in order to show that I love them.

Love in the agape, though it works for phileo and eros as well. But that's another topic.

I don't need respect, nor do others need to be respected by me, yet I respect some people and I know they respect me.

To be honest - do you need your computer? Do you need all the food you eat?

Respecting each other isn't about what we need, it's about what we should do in order to live together as a comunity.
If you don't respect the person next to you, you might just walk all over that person instead of helping that person to get up. And that would be wrong.
Respecting someone - or something - is doing right, because it's the right thing to do. I repsect nature, so I won't go out cutting down trees. I respect animals, so I'll try to feed the birds in winter and I automatically stop the car if an animal runs over the road (that could cause an accident, but I simply press the brake if I see a cat running over the road). I respect people, that's why I try to help them - there's a various range of things you can do - most of them are just nice behaviour: opening doors for someone, greeting, letting pedestrians cross, helping someone with cariying stuff, stoping when you see someone might be in trouble, standing up to let somebody more needy sit down (if somebody is older, or can not stand anymore,...). That's basic human respect, that let's us get along easier and makes this world a nicer place.

im a bit confused :crazy:

is it respect you are talking about

or is it just to be nice to everybody

or maybe it is sympathy for some things

i always thought it has to do sth with fear

maybe im wrong

it thing we should take things how they are

or just let people live like they want

the word respect comes from the roman empire
as far as i know. we should normally have other words in our own
language for this

Bye

Respect has only to do with the credits you get from other people..

Even in the Netherlands we use the work: Respect :bleh:
