Respect for self and for others, are important life changing qualities. I say life changing for a very simple reason. When you start looking at others in a different way and when you start showing others respect your entire outlook and approach to life will change.
Find the good in others and concentrate on the good. Overlook the faults and failing of others and try to always respect others as your equal. We are all human and we are all equal in the eye of the creator.
Ask yourself, what gives you the right to judge others or to decide how others act? As long as we respect the rights of others, abide by the universal laws of honesty, integrity, and ethics and abide by the laws of the country, then all are equal.
