I just ended my relationship with my SO because I feel like he did not respect me or our relationship. His children came to visit him which I had no problem with him spending time with his kids but He was gone for almost a week and I heard nothing from him. I feel he didn't even give our relationship the courtesy to call me and say hey I'm not coming home I'll be back (insert date) he just left one morning and I heard nothing else from him. He was also still talking to an Ex girlfriend of his who still wanted him back and I asked him not to speak with her anymore so we could work out our relationship but he continued to talk with her which I feel was another disrespect to our relationship so I got tired of it all and had enough especially since I was completely committed and loyal to him. Was I wrong or would you consider this disrespect?

I think you did the right thing, you asked for him to do what you felt you needed and he didn't.
Talking to an ex along isn't a directly problem but the fact you made it clear you didn't like it. Shows the disrespect more than anything on this.
Overall respect is about making a person feel equal and valued. That can mean different things to people, but in this situation it's clear his ex and his independence is more important than what you want.1
