When we go to school, there's respect. I think respect is always earned an can never be given. Arrive five minutes before the meeting 5. Respect for yourself is very important to a person because it can be the balancing factor of your life In past generations, the elderly were looked upon in admiration for their accomplishments in life.
Showing people that you take their feelings and thoughts into consideration are how to earn respect. After finishing my educational journey at Dominican University I hope to pursue a career in Human Resources.
Even if you do something for someone else, the example you shown will gain some ones respect, for example, if a person is going through a personal problem and you take time out of your own time to help them and be there and someone else sees that, you will gain their respect.
This could be because a teacher could have less influence on basic rights and comforts the child compared to the parents.
It is important to understand, that only you can change your life and it is possible to do only from your side.
