respectRespect is important in every relationship whether it be with your friends, coworkers, significant other, or family members. Respect means that we treat others in a thoughtful and courteous way. Oftentimes it is those we are closest to that we find behaving in a respectful way the hardest – our family members. We can get aggravated and annoyed for so many reasons and civilized conversations go out the window. However, mutual respect is a key aspect in a harmonious family foundation. We should all speak kind words to our loved ones, be responsible for our own actions and messes, and value the opinions and wishes of our loved ones. You cannot force someone to act in a respectful way towards you but you can earn respect by first showing respect. Take some time to reflect on your most recent tiff with a family member and how that conflict could have been avoided or changed with a little respect. After all, none of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, and we are all different so conflict in inevitable. Calmly talking through your differences is much more effective than holding in your anger until you explode and mutual respect is the key!

  1. A question, what if that person still does not show or treat your with respect. You have done everything possible to make things work and they still shut you down. What do you do?

  2. All I’m asking for is a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T… sorry, had to go there with the song! 🙂 I completely agree that in order for me to receive respect, I have to give respect to others. Thank you for bringing it back to Relationships 101… it is always good to remind ourselves of the basic establishments in building a relationship.
