Parents teach respect to their kids i because when kids are young they feel like they can do anything they want and treat people any way they want to. In Cinderella there is an exchange between Cinderella and the prince and it looks like this.
Respect is a word that has a lot of depth to it no matter what way you use it. The word by definition is kind of hard to pin down concretely because it is subjective, and it can be used in many different ways with many different meanings based on the usage. It is a word that everybody wants a piece of no matter how big or small the piece they get is. All definitions aside, the respect that most people want is the respect that is earned by the showing of honorable actions or personality characteristics. Be it dedication and sacrifices for one’s job or ones moral and ethical views and principles.

I feel torn, as I assume many young people have, between what I love and am talented in and moving on in life. I wonder if tennis is something for the present or just a hobby and something that I enjoyed as a young person. I know that at some stage every athlete must put down the ball in the competitive sense. I ask myself, was I overconfident and overambitious or must I just be patient?
