Respect Is A Nonissue

September 20, 2013

Insisting that others respect you is a waste of energy.

For one thing, what is a sign of respect or disrespect is subjective and highly relative. It is also a matter of both intention and perception, both of which are tricky to attribute.

For another, it can’t be demanded. Demanding respect is like trying to grab a handful of water. (Tweet this) The more you are trying to demand it, the less of it you have.

And finally, it doesn’t even come from other people. It is a feeling you have about yourself. The only way you can be affected by your perceptions of other people is if they trigger feelings that you already have.
