Respect is a silent action that speaks louder than words. It’s a demand for honor, humbleness and mercy.
From My Heart: Respect is not always earned or even deserved but it is the right thing to do. Respect in yourself shows in the way you carry yourself and how you treat others. To respect is to value or honor the presence of a person or thing regardless of your own thoughts, beliefs, upbringing, religion, sex, fears, doubts, pride and narrow-mindedness and selfishness. Giving someone respect and honor lifts you up higher than the person that you’re respecting or honoring. It makes you the better person.
It takes a mature person to honor and respect others.
