R | It is all about Respect... Respect... and Respect

When I thought about what to write about for the letter R, only one word came in front of me. RESPECT

Respect is a tough word to generalize and explain.
Here' the thing about respect | What it means to you may be different from what it means to me. Your manifestation of respect for someone may vary significantly from my manifestation of respect.

As I read about what "respect" means, I came across a few words that I liked

Respect is how you feel about someone
* Having respect for someone means you think good things about who a person is or how he/she acts. You can have respect for others, and you can have respect for yourself.
Respect is how you treat someone
* Showing respect to someone means you act in a way that shows you care about their feelings and well-being.

Adding on,
 *   Respect is thinking and acting in a positive way about yourself or others.
 *   Respect is thinking and acting in a way that shows others you care about their feelings and their well-being.

Simple and well described.
The thing about respect is the more you give, the more you get. 
The more you respect yourself, the more other will respect you
The more you respect others, the more other will respect you

And yet, many of us don't pay enough importance to this. 

In this post I'm share things which I believe one should respect

* Yourself

* Your past

* Your failures

* Your successes

* Your parents

* Your friends

* Your siblings

* Your teachers / mentors

* People you work with

* Experiences - Good, Bad and Ugly

* All the good things you have in life

* People who work for you

* Privacy

* Technology

*  Feedback - Good, Bad and Ugly (in the real world and in the virtual world)
