Respect or fear to someone?What do you think? Sometimes we will respect person that we think he/she should be respect but some person that in our life we fear at him/her. Your opinion?

Its better to respect somebody but not fearing them, though some people when you respect them they try to think that you fear them and they start taking advantage of you by intimidating you. People should differenciate well between the two. Older people when you respect them tend to think that you are afraid of them. I remember one day my friend being asked by an elderly guy why he fears him yet my friend was only being respectiful to him.

in my opinion, respect and fear are absolutely something very different. i have a simple analogy to show how respect and fear differ from each other. we fear someone because that person might bring harm to us. example, killer, rapist etc. and we respect someone because we admire how kind someone treated you or simply because they have higher authority than us. example your boss, mother and father, an so on. whether to be respected or be fear, i'd choose to be respected by other cause for me, being respected is being loved while being feared of is being hated
