  1. I agree with Julia and Kim, in a weird way. If they do they do, if they don’t they don’t, it’s really none of my business.. On one hand though, I do self-reflect often and prefer to be a respectable person, so I’d like to think that the respect factor is there, especially with people I care about. GREAT QUESTION!

  2. Hmmm good one. I can’t force people to respect me. And working on making them respect me seems like a waste of time. I do, though, work harder on respecting people who don’t seem to respect me even more, if just to show them that I am a good person.

  3. I think respect is very important. And I agree when Danny said that you don’t believe no is truly an answer to this question. I think that is because people often confuse respect and rather someone likes you or not maybe? I don’t care if people dislike or have certain opinions about me, but I think they should mutually respect me like I respect them rather I like or dislike them. Respect needs to be practiced more in our society imo. It is a small thing that gets so easily forgotten sometimes. Especially with raising our youth. It is not just important to be respected but to have mutual respect for other human beings. I don’t think the ‘I don’t care what you think about me’ attitude applies to this question. Sure you may not be bothered that a stranger disrespects you when conversing in a simple conversation, but the point is that stranger should mutually show you respect as this creates a better world and happier people. And I would hope you care if your loved ones disrespect or respect you, because if they don\t respect you than they are not really a loved one are they and you need to find a better crowd. Respect is one of the most important things in any kind of relationship be it friendship, family, marriage and so on. It is high up there with trust or at least I would hope it is. If you don’t care who respects you or not, then it seems you have no respect for yourself is what it tells me.

    So yes not only is it important for people to respect me, it is something I think respect alone is a very important act and gesture. Mutual respect is important and it is something I always try to do myself. I grew up being told I don’t have to like everyone in my class, work force or people who come into contact with me, but I do have to show them respect.
