“Show respect even to people who don’t deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours.” – Dave Willis
Ultimately we should show respect to everyone for the simple reason that they are human beings and they deserve our kindness. As a society, we need to work together on being more respectful out of habit, which will also encourage this behaviour in others.
Respecting people who don’t deserve it doesn’t mean that we should be naive and ignorant. It means that we should be patient, and understanding.
It can be hard to respect someone when we don’t feel like they deserve it. People sometimes don’t show any respect for the lives of others and can give in to hate. It is important that we try our best to be respectful towards one another and treat each other with dignity no matter what. For a better world and society, we need to show more respect – even if we do not always feel like it.
But just because they don’t deserve it doesn’t mean that we should be naïve and ignorant to them. We should respect them by being patient and understanding of their situation.
We should also be kind to animals because they are living creatures too. We should not think of animals as mere things that we can use for our own benefit. They are living creatures too and deserve to be treated with respect. We should also be kind to animals because they have a role in making our world a better place.
“It is wrong to hurt or kill an animal as we would hurt or kill a human being.”- George Washington
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”- Mahatma Gandhi
