Before you can get the respect of others, you need to respect yourself first.
“Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.”
– Baltasar Gracian
Always respect others even if they don’t respect you. In the end it will always come back.
You can’t ask for respect, you’ll get it or not. It’s not up to you. You need to do whatever you feel is right and the respect will come from your action.
Stop worrying about the respect that others have or not for your work.
Respect will come from your actions. If you don’t act, you can’t get the respect from others that you want.
When you take action, you don’t know if it will have the effect you want. But if you do it with respect for yourself, you’ll at least have the good feeling for having done it.
