 To me it means to value people, honor,  to admire and accept people and things.  I don't really know how to put it into words.

I don't know if I can put it into words either.

Hence, the question.

I'm struggling with this definition....

 Well, I have a TON of respect for my parents.  Sadly my dad is gone but I still have my mom.  I love them, value them and their opinions, admire them and all the wonderful things they taught me and I definitely try to always honor them.  That's what I was thinking about when I answered.  I'll be interested to see what others say too.   :)

I can't really put it into words very well myself.  Being conciderate of others thoughts, opinions, and feelingsis the best I can do.

Respect to me means, I don't have to say everything I think for ME to feel better about ME....but to work out a difference I may have with another without addressing them.  That is respect.

Respect is protecting yourself from growing bitter when you disagree with another....so you can face another day interacting with them and still be able to smile...

I think it means that other people value your opinion and make the effort to seek you out for your opinion.  THey also admire you for you good sense.

To me when I was growing up you were to show respect for your elders,teachers,parents ect..because they were older and new more then us as children.

As I got older respect meant even if peoples ideas and view were different then mine they were allowed to voice them.All people are different rather be their views,color,religion ect. and we all have the right to our space and to express ourselves.

And to respect another person is to hold them in high esteem and value their opinons and feelings.
