All people are deserving of respect. This life lesson is very important. Without respect, people could be completely different. With respect, it gives people a sense to help others in need, and can he others and themselves stay happy. “When we treat people merely as they are, they will remain as they are.
There would be more malice, less impulse to try new things, humans would lack emotion, and peoples' reputations would disappear. The first reason that it would be impossible for society to function without respect is there would be more malice. More war outbreaks would occur; nobody would care what others would think of them for fighting. Less civilization lack of cleanliness would be a massive problem if there was no respect in society. There would be more abuse; humans and animals would be poorly treated.
Can society function without respect? From the eyes of the world, one might argue that showing respect to others is a sign of weakness. The ability to forgive others can often be confused as a shortcoming in one’s self. However, respect is the fundamental foundation of a trusting society. Without respect, there wouldn’t be compassion, kindness, or humility.
Respect, everybody wants it, but few actually get it. True respect is not something that you can impose or ask from others; it is something that others gives to you from their own will and it is not that easy to get. We live in a feminized society and most people are egocentric, immature and do not follow tradition and honor code anymore. A lot of people will be jealous of your success and start hating you instead of respecting you. They will try to lower you down by every sneaky way possible in order to get themselves up in the group’s social hierarchy.
Whether this respect comes as an advocacy for my profession or fighting for my rights at any platform. Whether this respect is for my own child or for the children of others in my care. I believe that every individual deserves the respect irrespective of their gender, cultural background, colour, race or ethnicity. Ridiculing, making fun of others and letting others down are certainly the worst gestures I despise in human beings. I feel this is where we lose our humanity.

I believe that society cannot function without respect because students who disrespect their teachers by openly defying the instructions of a teacher could lead to a chain reaction of events that interfere with not only their education, but the education of their classmates. Many students, especially younger impressionable students will take the example of the disrespectful students and will begin to disrespect their teacher. Consequently,
Can Society Function without Respect? Society would not be able to function without respect in our world. Too many people in our world are cruel to others because of what they look like, what they like to do, the amount of money they have, or who they love. While people are actively being rude and dishonest to one another, we as humans constantly walk past each other and don’t take it to consideration how bad the situation really is. People don’t recognize the pain others go through when our community lacks respect.
It’s an honored to make friends, and learn different cultures from everyone I meet. I find joy in being able to build new relationships outside of my own culture. As a social worker, I will have the advantage that I’ve learned and work with different cultures. I look at everyone for what we are, humans. All humans deserve respect and the same equal opportunities no matter of their heritages, values, and customs.
I prefer to use respect that humility because I do think that no one on the earth is properly humble. For me Respect fit better with my personality in the sense that I define it as the fact to consider an individual as the same level as you or how you will like people to treat you if you had the same appearance, political status, job, age, etc. Obstacles that I encounters in term of achieving this values is people culture. In my countries saying “mum or madam” to someone is sign of respect. However, in some culture saying the same words is sign of insults as telling to the women in front of you that she is old.
