Paola Fernándezhas quoted2 years ago
show respect for people, especially friends, means taking the time to find out what they like and don’t like, rather than just assuming they’ll like what you like. In other words, respect in the deepest, most meaningful sense means treating you as an autonomous individual whose preferences and even values may be different from mine.

• Respond in a way that brings out the best in you.
