  • Yes and no....I feel that you should show people respect until they prove that they do not diserve it. People will be more respectful to you if you show them respect as well....if you do not show it off the bat then neither will they and you will both feel that they do not diserve it. Sorry this is kinda hard to follow lol. I tend to talk in circles a bit lol

  • I sort of agree. I think that you should have general respect for all people. I mean, you're not going to disrespect someone just because you don't know them or haven't had a chance for them to earn your respect, right?

  • I respect who they are even if I do not agree with what they do. They do not have to earn it or fight for it.

  • I have a level of respect for everything/everyone. Some people lose my respect, some earn deeper respect.
