Directions: For this part, you are allowed 30 minutes to write a short easy commenting on the saying “Respect others, and you will be respected.” You can cite examples to illustrate your views. You should write at least 150 words but no more than 200 words.
A saying goes that “respect others, and you will be respected”. Simple as the saying is, its meaning is profound and thought-provoking. Evidently, it is meant to tell us that being respected by others is derived from respecting others.
Actually, all men are born to be equal and respect or esteem is the basic need of men. In other words, people cannot live freely and comfortably without others’ respect or esteem. Taking a look around we can also find examples too many to enumerate. Don’t make a joke with others, like appearance, social status, health conditions, since everyone has the right to be respected as a member of the society. It is also a respectable behavior that there is no interruption when others are talking or doing work. Without respect, it is hard for one to gain friendship, confidence, trust and even happiness.
Bring what has been discussed into consideration, respect matters in people’s mutual relationship. Respecting others shows one’s good upbringing and parenting. The more you respect others, the more you will be respected.
