Wake up & think positive
` If you do not have or give yourself some respect, no one else will give you the respect that you deserve. Respect attracts respect." NosaJ
A lack of respect for leadership or a lack of respect by leadership for the people is what can make nations fall. The same can be said of corporations or small companies and organizations. On a more microscopic and personal level to relationships. a lack of respect between partners is one of the factors that can lead to a breakdown of the relationship.
A lack of respect for anyone as a leader means that the leader cannot effectively lead others. Such a lack of respect for the leader affects faith and hope for a better future. It can lead to the questionable character of the leader, the chain of command and the breakdown of effective working relationship in any environment. Dysfuntional presides with a capital D.
If a man has no respect for the woman he is with, the woman no respect for the man, she is with, man with man or woman with woman, they should not be together for such a relationship is already on the way to departure. Respect belongs to love but can stand alone without love in any relationship but faith in the relationship requires some respect to sustain the relationship. The respect on this level also needs to be mutual.
The Parent child relationship is also based on some respect and survives most relationships until maybe the children grow up and becomes more independent and of course of their own mind. A child respects the parent not necessarily because the parent is the parent but probably more because of the way a parent is or the way of parenting.
Respect is not equivalent to fear or about beating it into a child. It is about earning it, teaching it and keeping it. It may require a raised voice from time to time or even an appropriate and corrective spanking but never a beating. In the earlier stages a child may be afraid of the parent(s) as the alphas anyway but such fear does go away eventually and better to go to respect and love, than anywhere or anything else.
Sometimes we think that our children are going to remain the same age forever when they are young or maybe we forget to remind ourselves that they will grow up. They grow up to be as tall as us. They may even hopefully grow up to be better and greater than us but if we fail to teach them the lesson of respect, the better and greater never happens. They are a reflection of us and we tend to leave a much larger imprint than we imagine, which has nothing to do with genetics but so much do do with nurturing.
And so respect is not just about parents or adults respecting self and each other but respecting everyone including the young and children. Age entitles no one to disrespect anyone else and neither does experience.
If you learn to respect yourself, your children while they grow up and others around you, there is sure to be more harmony and less discord to your own world and life. If harmony is continuously disrupted by arguments between parents, between parents and child, so it continues into adult hood and affects love also. If harmony is continuously disrupted between co-workers, there lies a more negative work environment instead of a more positive environment. It is a s you make it or contribute to it.
Wake up with some respect for the person lying next to you, if there is anyone lying next to you. They are one of the most important people in your life. Wake up with some respect for the person lying in you- you. Wake up with some respect for the people and things around you as well as your environment.
Respect is an attribute of all that is positive and the amount of respect that you have fuels your own positivity and how you feel.
