Examine what Respect Means to you.



Consider this seemingly simple concept and write a one to two-page paper about the concept of respect.  Be sure to address more than one different idea.  You must include an anecdote (real or made up) in your response.


Suggestions for writing:


v   What does respect mean to you?

v   How do you show respect to others?

v   How do you react when you feel respected?

v   How do you react when you feel disrespected?

v   Why can respect strengthen a relationship?

v   How can disrespect weaken a relationship?


St. Anthony Foundation, April 2008

Whom do you respect the most in your life?
Have you ever been disrespected?  Consider how this made you feel.
