Yes I'm being serious and I get the concept of it but I don't know I never felt (?) it. I know what self-respect is and that everyone needs it but when it comes to the "respect of others" - I don't get it.
How does someone doing a particular action you deem as not good (not necessarily immoral) make you "lose respect" for them and treat them badly or ignore them completely? Is it like people walking around thinking everyone is either godly or lowly creatures? Simple things like being a flirt makes people think they can't have one's respect. If person A thinks person B is a pushover they say they don't "respect" person B. Why is that? They're clearly nice & kind people why can't you respect them?
I always see it either you like someone or dislike someone. Simply put, either they make you happy and/or add to your life or they're negative and are toxic. Where does respect come in and why does that deter treatment towards people? People can't have flaws?
What's the idea of respect & the link towards the treatment of other on the account of "respect"?

Here is the way I see it, not saying I agree with it but I'll go by the majority of people. People have more repect for others if they have the same common interest and they have personality types that are compatible. Some people will lose repect for others just for there differences, weather it be there interest or there personality. Example, someone who is easy going queit and doesn't speak up much may be extremely kind and nice but a person that is open and outgoing and very direct will see it as a weakness because they won't stick up for themselves so will sometimes take advantage of the person because they know they can get away with it, or they'll just avoid the person all together but in the work industry normally the queit ones get taken for granted, no matter how hard a worker they are, the outgoing person will get more recognition and move up the ranks, that goes for the dating world to I guess, outgoing people normally are confident so they get the person they want to be with. So the queit shy person is seen as "weak" when I don't agree with that, that person is me, however once I'll comfortable with the people I'm around I'm no longer a push over. Also interest people judge other people of by there interest a lot and some interest people just have no repect for therefore have none for the person that does that particular activity. People are normally quick to judge before they meet someone and its much harder to earn someones respect then it is to lose it, respect is very easy to lose. The way I am though is repect everyone, even for there difference's until they can prove to you they don't want your respect. People normally arn't like that does it make them wrong or bad people? No not really, they still will respect people they have common interest in because they are comfortable with them and can relate.0
