  1. I have lost all respect for my mother who my entire life mentally and emotionally degraded me, diminished and killed my spirit.A shame I was in the evangelical world which made me feel never good enough.I learn now to respect me, my feelings and wants.

  2. i think one can love without respect, that sounds sometimes bitter to the beloved. But respect always is felt sweet by the respectee, which is the real content of a true love, mean honey…

  3. I got a bit confused when I read it too cmalloy79. It means we should always choose to be respected first because then it can always turn in to love. I got it now and that’s why I put respect first in my life after realizing I had to leave a marriage of nearly 28 years because I wasn’t. Never again, learned my lesson!
