How you talk with and listen to others is a great way to show respect. It’s in the manner you engage, not so much whether you agree or disagree.
Respect doesn’t mean you’re giving in to the other guy. Showing respect can be quite simple. One definition of respect is, “a courteous consideration of another person.”
You can show respect even in disagreement. Be patient in your listening, calm in your talking, and not hurried to respond when it’s your turn.
Respect is then, in part, how you treat the other person while having a conversation. Acknowledging their point of view and present your own thoughts in an understandable way.
If our debates and arguments can be exercised with restraint and respect, whether or not we have the same goal, we can learn and grow from such exchange.
Don’t be a right-fighter. Cooperative is better than combative.
