Essay on Respect


Respect is really about what we admire in the world and in people. People tend to admire things that they want. For example, if you want to be beautiful you will respect beauty. If you respect women, you will treat them with kindness and love. What we want tells a lot about who we are. And, of course, in modern society money is coveted and admired by all.

The reason for respect is that you can more likely get things that you respect. If you do not respect money, you will never have it. If you do not respect beauty, you will let yourself go. What we respect is a clue to what we want in life.

Many people that are trying to attract good things into their life have one major flaw. They do not respect what the seek. For example, if you do not respect wealthy people, you are not going to ever be a wealthy person. Your own values and brain will sabotage your efforts. You need to show respect for things that you want. Respecting good things will bring more good into your life.

Society, through marketing, infuses value systems into the hearts of the masses. Much of what we respect most, is often taught to us through a television. Much of the values people respect do not produce happiness. People strive harder than ever to achieve more and more and yet their lives become more barren as their lives speed up to a frantic pace.

The great hold upon people is the desire for respect and admiration by others. Why? People need friends and to feel loved. If you are constantly rejected by people it hurts? So, we get two kinds of people. Those that reject societal values and stand alone and those that buy into the systematic values. Those that reject societal values have a very hard time with people and life. Those that buy into the system are rewarded. In the end, both camps of people are somewhat unhappy because the truest way to happiness would be to have complete solidarity with values that are grounded in love and kindness.

When the love of money waxes strong in the hearts of men, you can expect pride to infiltrate society and bring down the humble. In due time, pride destroys men and the cycle continues.

For a brief period in history, people have actually lived in complete harmony and happiness with each other. At these times, people had values that placed love and cooperation above greed and lust.

Respect: a relation to or concern with something specified; an act of giving particular attention; consideration.
That’s the official definition, but what does it mean to me, good question. What does it mean to me? Respect is something that should be earned not just given. There are a lot of people who do not respect others, and that is one of the things wrong with society today. The gang members who spray graffiti in their own neighborhood on other people’s property, they need to be punished cause they show no respect for anyone or anything. Behavior like this probably begins at home.
Many families are single parents only so children are not taught respect in the home as in the past. They learn nothing about values, because there’s no one to teach them. They pick it up from the streets instead. They learn to disrespect themselves by subjecting their bodies to drugs and alcohol. They learn to disrespect others so they can be cool, and not only people but property as well. How de we correct this, don’t know. All we can do is show them respect and hope in some way they can respect us back.
Most societies show much respect for the elderly, except for the U.S. The elderly have much we could learn from, but for some reason we just put them in nursing homes and let them rot. Other countries hold the elderly in total and utter respect, listening to their every word, and acting on it. We could learn something from these other countries. We tend to think of ourselves as the perfect society, but in many ways we are flawed. As we learn new ways the old ones are tossed to the side. What happened to the days when the youth would gather around a WWII vet and listen to his stories of the war. Nowadays we’re too busy to listen, and because of this we suffer for it. Old traditions are tossed away as easily as yesterday’s trash. Maybe it’s time we stopped and looked at how others resp

Other teaching guides in this series:

1. What does it mean to treat other people with respect? Have the class brainstorm a list of do’s and don’ts for treating people with respect. Ask for specific examples of each behavior they identify. Compare their list with the one at the top of this column. Hang the list up on the wall as a reminder.

2. Have the class identify as many differences as they can among their members. This should include national, racial, and cultural differences, as well as different talents, disabilities, etc. How do they feel about all this diversity?

3. The kids in the video suggested having class discussions about different ethnic backgrounds so they can learn to understand what other people are feeling. As one boy put it, “knowledge is the basis for harmony.” Organize a multi-cultural appreciation week. Have kids representing different groups put together presentations designed to help other kids understand and appreciate the special characteristics of that group. Include such things as history, customs, values, cultures, anything that might contribute to breaking down the barriers that prevent people of different cultures from getting along.

4. Have the kids role play the following situation:
Four good friends are planning to spend a day at an amusement park. Two of them want to invite another kid who’s new in school. The other two don’t want to include this person because he/she is different in some way (different race, a “nerd,” from a foreign country, etc.). After the role play have a class discussion. Then, have four others do another role play changing what it is that’s different about the new kid (for instance, he or she is HIV positive). Repeat this process changing the difference each time.

1. Imagine that some day you will have a child. Write a letter of advice for that child to open when he or she reaches the age you are right now. Tell the child about the way kids in your school or other groups treated each other at this age, and how you hope he/she will treat people.

2. How is the issue of respect portrayed on television or in the movies? Watch a movie or TV show and write about how the characters interacted with each other. In what ways did they treat each other with respect or disrespect? (Give some specific examples.) Do you approve of the way they treated each other? Did you feel different toward characters who treated others with respect than those who didn’t? Which did you like better? Why?

3. Are some kids ridiculed at your school? Why? What do they get picked on about (height, weight, appearance, disability, accent, skin color, etc.)? Exactly how are they picked on? How do you think these kids feel about this? How do you feel about it? How does that kind of behavior affect the climate in your school?

4. Have you ever been made fun of for something that you couldn’t change? Can you give some examples? How did (do) you deal with it? How did it make you feel?

5. In what ways do you treat people with respect? Are there any ways in which you don’t?

6. Have you ever seen anybody mistreated for being different. Describe the incident. How did it make you feel? What would it take to prevent things like this from happening again?
