Are you that kind of person who wants other person to respect you? or you don't mind whether other people make fun of you? For me I want everybody to give respect to everyone, according to the saying and I think it is right "if you want to be respected respect yourself and others" Don't let other people put you down or destroy your personality, if you cannot stop them get away from them don't associate with people who doesn't want to respect others. I feel so sorry for what had happen to one of our artist in our country she was involve in a scandal, I think this woman deserves respect, the guy who had done it to her must pay and must give a public appology, and for us the viewer, we need not to condem her but give her respect too. How about you what is your view about this scandal? And what is your view about self respect and respect for others?

I agree with you, I want respect, I help a country music band and i am at their gigs to take the photos and such and i have already told the head man of the group that I would hate to have people think that I am a groupie, I think I would give up helping the band if I thought that was how i was seen to others...but I am very lucky, I am treated with respect by all the band guys..I guess i sort of demand it in a way...

I want respect and I give respect. Still, I take a lot of picking on. It's all good. I can tell when it is done in fun. I don't know about your artist but it sounds as if she has been a victim. She does deserve respect....everyone does.

I feel that everyone should respect one another, and if someone does something bad then they don't deserve that respect anymore. For example - a mugger. They deserve no respect.

hmm each person has its own view..own attitude..own direction for things.. and each and every person deserves respect from my side..i also expect people to respect me n if they dnt i prove myself before them..as no body can underestimate u for wat u r....ur personality is unique and u shud nt listen to them.. self respect and dignity are such things that made from efforts and u cant afford to lose them.. wat happened to her i cant say..as she was victim as well as guilty..she should have thoght before trusting dat guy..obviously d girl deserve respect and honour..its just a mistake n everybody do often mistakes but it doesnt mean we are bad...

That's true saying, I tried to do that one. I respect every one so that I will also be respected. I do my best thing that cant make harm to myself. But sometimes we cannot avoid that we are only human beings commit some mistakes that we are not thinking it. Like what you said an artist , my idea of it is just he did things himself just for him a files not knowing it will come out to the open. That he's personal life and I dont want to comment, its hard for him and most importantly to the ladies involved in her life. I respect each person for that its really hard if you are in their shoes. I cant handle myself for it. Hope fair justice come to each individual and forgive them all.

You give respect, you gain respect. You are right about what you said about respecting your self first before others respect you. About the controversy, well so sad to hear that it ballooned like that. Before there was only an issue of a s*x video and Hayden Kho told the reporters when interviewed that there was no existing video. I don't know if he lied at that point in time or it was never him who spread the video. But the fact that he recorded the actual thing, then he's got an intention of doing the same. Senator Bong Revilla is right to revoke the license of the said doctor. It is really shameful that these things are happening in our country. If we really consider it as a Christian nation, then the government should implement rules about this matter to protect women and children being exploited on the internet specially if someone spread personal affairs online, it is really degrading and immoral.

i do respect other person as well as myself, if a person don't know how to respect themselves, of course other person don't respect them as well. i have friends that is very close to me, sometimes we get to make fun with each other , but i don't mind it at all. when it becomes under the belt, that is the time for me to react and switch the situation to serious matter and tell them that it is over.

all of us need respect from others.even kids.but it is hard to get everyone's respect in life.some people don't think that they have to give respect to others.that is why so many problems happened in life.respect others means respect ourselves.

Self respect is like the fuel that runs us through life. Without self-respect most of us would not be able to walk upright. I too have self-respect but I dont let that take the shape of ego. Ego is something that is very harmful and I take most things casually so that I dont ever give a boost to my ego. But I know where to draw the line, I can understand if somebody is making fun or insulting me. I cant give it back though, I just move away from that area. Its the best for me. Regarding the scandal in your country, I dont know about that but respect is something that should not be associated with the personal lives of people. If this artist has some scandal in her personal life, it should not affect the professional respect that people should give her.

I totally agree with you. To live in a harmoneous community, the basic principle is to respect each other. People from different family, education, culture,etc. may have different preferences, but accommodating the difference, and taking the common is a smart way of getting on good terms. Respect others is in fact a means of respect ourselves.
