Being respectful starts with respecting ourselves. By being both objective and loving about who we are, we build the start for improving relationship with the one we care for, and the world. Being respectful with ourselves is implemented in many ways: listening to our body, for signals it may be very comfortable, in need of a rest, etc. Listening to our feelings, needs and wants, and communicate them in a respectful way to our beloved ones.

We also need to be respectful of other people, and environment. And respect the power of the context, which is formed by the place and time where events take place. Our best friend may not be in the best form today, and so some inapropriate actions may result from this, and we need to communicate how we feel about it in a respectful manner. At the same time, if inapropriate actions and words happen regularly, then we owe – as a form of respect to ourselves – to clarify the situation with the relevant people, and even take a distance if necessary.

Being respectful is showed with words and actions. Even what we do not say, or do, often reveals a lot about how respecftul we really are.

    The perfect post. Just like what you said. I have nothing to add. I’d like to elaborate a bit. This post is so well written it’s almost perfection itself. I feel that if a leave a comment it will stain the carpet and mess the overall grandeur of the blog. I beat a hasty retreat. :-)
