Know your values. How about the appropriate amount of respect?Motto of the day: How about respect and the courage to speak up?
I am ashamed to think how easily we capitulate to badges and names, to large societies and dead institutions.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How about the appropriate amount of respect?
Personal values deliver a profound base for good decision-making. Respect is an important value. What is more appropriate and what is inappropriate respect?
How about the relationship between respect and speaking up?
Respect is an important value. And the courage to speak up is also one. Sometimes people don’t speak up because it interferes with the respect they want to convey someone else. What is more appropriate and what is inappropriate respect?
I sometimes underline how important respect is in my opinion. In my mind respect means to live personal values without hurting those of others. That isn’t easy since discussions about moral and ethics will last and a common definition is not accepted by everyone. Therefore, it is up to you to know your personal values. Then it is easier to know where and when to stand up and speak. And yes, there is a high chance that someone doesn’t like what you say. Be brave and respectful in the mentioned way.
