Sometimes, I have a hard time with people who act as if they have the best ideas. More often than not, my opinions are kept to myself about this because I don’t know how to tell someone that I don’t feel their input is valid. I guess I have respect issues of my own. Respect is one of those things that I have a hard time giving if I don’t know them, or if they haven’t shown me they deserve respect..
Is this something that should be given unless something points otherwise? Or is respect a “you gotta earn it” type of deal?
