But if you ask me to show some respect to someone who is a rocket scientist, I don’t think I could because I’ll never use that kind of information. Don’t get me wrong, I would not disrespect him ether, I just really not be interested.

But let’s say that someone who is not going to be a computer graphic designer wanted respect they would have to earn. It does not work one way both people wound have to show respect, in order to gain each other’s respect.

You can’t DEMAND respect, nor make people give respect out of fear. Unless you’re a superstar or MVP of the year, you will have to show respect in order to gain respect.

I want to let you know what it means to me. To gain trust, friendship, and good morals all depend on if you are humble enough to show respect and worthy enough to gain respect.
