What causes you to lose respect for others? Respect often comes from having good
character. And character comes from having good values; practicing self-leadership which includes being authentic, humble and courageous; and finally character comes from valuing others more than judging them. So we would then lose respect for people, when they do not value others, they do not have values that align with ours, or we do not find them authentic, appropriately humble or courageous when the situation calls for some act of bravery. This could be as simple as standing up for someone who is bullied.
