The Power for Respect
Why respect is the most important value
“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
~ Albert Einstein
Give respect to get respect. People will treat you well, if you give them your respect. I’ve learned through many experiences, that to receive respect, you give respect. Even if its something your not interested in.
Always, show and give respect, and nothing bad will ever happen. I’ve learned this the most at all school meeting the day before break, after I had already gotten in big trouble. During all school meeting, I was a little depressed because I just found out I had to serve a Tuesday detention for not listening to a teachers instructions and after being talked to, I still kept doing what I wasn’t supposed to be doing.
After already getting in trouble earlier in the year I walked in pretty depressed and unhappy, but at least I was going to go on break in a couple hours. I didn’t pay attention the whole time, and after Ms McCarthy asked to talk to me. I started to panic as I walked into her office as she lectured me and said that she was disappointed in how I handled things after.
I’ve learned a lot from this experience. Ive learned to pay attention. But most importantly, Ive learned to show and give respect, because nothing’s bad will ever happen if you just show some respect. Ever since then I’ve learned one thing: give respect to get respect.
