What is Respect?

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

We talk so much about respect for oneself and for the other, in our and in all cultures, that suddenly what could be a phenomenon of profound strength, ends up ending up in that banality of a prefabricated concept that fails to immerse itself in the encounter of one with no one else, not with oneself.




We talk so much about respect for oneself and for the other, in our and in all cultures, that suddenly what could be a phenomenon of profound strength, ends up ending up in that banality of a prefabricated concept that fails to immerse itself in the encounter of one with no one else, not with oneself.


All, absolutely all human relationships begin with respect. They do not begin with communication, nor with sympathy, with liking or dislike. Once the encounter is established, what sustains it is simply respect.


If I cannot see you and treat you as equal to me and everyone, with the same possibilities and capacities, to be the same or different, but to be, to be entitled to be everything that you are in your human experience, then there will be no respect .


If I do not have the possibility to treat myself as I deserve it, I accept it and I stand in front of it from my strength, accepting those resignations that this entails, I will have to be condescending to myself, and I will keep a fraction of myself, incomplete and unresolved.


But the true truth is that we will always be incomplete and unsolvable, because the process is infinite, although this does not mean that we stop at frustrations, conforming and mirages of unrealities. Accepting our own times, the timing of things, also deserves our respect.


We are accordingly to the challenges that we set ourselves. We relate accordingly to the respect we have for each other.
