I like to treat others in a kind and polite way. I hope that they will be the same way towards me. I respect myself and others. I know my good points and my weaknesses. I am a primary school teacher and so I try to teach the children to be kind and thoughtful towards other people. I know that some children suffer low self esteem so help them by saying they are good at something, like reading. That will help the child acquire self worth. Every person in the world should treat themselves and others as well as possible.

Treating is the same as Loving. The bible says that you should love your neighbours as yourself. So that means anything that you does for yourself which are good you send do it to others. Yes one has to respect his/her self because he/she can receive respect. Remember that everything that is positive starts from within you and when you do that then persons around you will see it and respond to you the way which is respectful.

Yes, this is very true in many cases. If you have respect then you will get it back. But, sometimes people don't respect you enough even if you have respect for yourself. It still does not matter. This has happened to me many times. It is very wise to have respect for yourself, so that you will be respected by others.

Hi stacyv81! That is very true. My mother always tell me to treat myself better because the way I see myself and the way I treat myself will reflect on my personality. This will also effect other people on how they will treat me. That is why I do agree with you completely dear friend. Take care and have a great day! lovelots..faith

Oh, Many do state it I preach it often... In fact I sum up the words religion laws into what I call the Heinzist way.. which is just what I named my personal path to a life of respect. Remain True Spirit (god), Self and others, by loving one another, Respecting the rights of all things and beings... Following the Golden rule (you stated above) And Agreeing to Disagree... This is the foundation to me of a code to living a good strong respectful life... Many times agree to disagree is misunderstood and whn people state it they think they are stating I am right you are wrong.. It means We agree that neither of us can prove our point enough to change eachothers mind, so in the end the outcome is neutral neither wins or loses... and we are both right to disagree in our own views of eachothers... Respect is very important.. But its hard as people have different values, and consider different things disrespectful like in one house is normal to throw things and yell across the house, as in another these can be highly disrespectful and disruptive, as Different places, traditions and cultures have different values, morals, and codes to what they consider respectful or not. - DNatureofDTrain
