We all hold different opinions and ideas. With over 7 billion individuals on the planet, it makes sense that we all have different worldviews. These different points of view have the potential to cause disagreements, conflicts, and even violence. Most people would love to think that they appreciate and accept the opinions of others.
We try to be courteous to everyone. However, there are times when we are understanding of those who share our beliefs. We naturally retaliate when we hear someone voice an opinion that differs from our own. The term “respect” first arose in the Latin word “respectus,” which also means “attention,” “consideration,” or “regard.”
