I do not think that is how respect works. It's like kindness. Its something that is very personal. You can't just willy nilly give out respect. Why should I have respect for someone who has done nothing in my eyes to deserve it? And why should I want someone's respect when i don't think I have done anything to deserve it.
But I understand the point you were trying to make.
I think it's the same way with any emotion really. Why should trust anyone willy nilly, or be kind to them, or generous, or compassionate. But you cannot ever expect to get something without being ready to give it first.
Also, I love the phrase "willy nilly," makes me giggle.
In the jungle, yes. Between humans, it should be different
As I told the poster below, "I think it's the same way with any emotion really. Why should trust anyone willy nilly, or be kind to them, or generous, or compassionate. But you cannot ever expect to get something without being ready to give it first." :3
i don't think thats true for respect, maybe trust and kindness (though you should be kind to everyone) but not respect. Just because i give someone respect does not mean they're going to give me respect back, like my father, mother, or brother. Classmates, co-workers. None of them give me respect so ill be darned if i give them any. Respect for someone comes from actions, but it's not something that should be given just for the sake of keeping it a give and take kind of philosophy. But that is also just my opinion, and that's yours. uwu
lolololol too funny how you're running around in circles over a point just so you don't agree
last comment from me about the topic.
nothing can be mutual without someone starting first. And you can love someone who doesn't know you and it being one sided, you can be kind to someone, generous, compassionate ... everything can be one sided in the end, but that's not the way it's meant to be. You give and you shall receive. Everything in life in a give and take. If you disagree, I respect that, but doesn't make it right
