When you see someone respecting the person below his own rank in strength, status, money, knowledge, and age, consider that respect is genuine.
In general, We show respect to those above us in various ways, but that respect is not for fellow humans. It’s just for some reason.
But when we respect people without any reason, that’s when we understand the real meaning of respect.
Oh, by the way, respect is when you give, not when you expect it from others.
