To Respect or To Be Respected

Respect Is The Main Point…

Such a statement which seems like a cliche, may include a very deep meaning. Besides the great Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet Ran didn’t asked in vain “Just because you respect the apple,  must the apple respect you back?” in his poem “Tahir ile Zühre Meselesi*”.

Your faith in your beloved one’s respect of you doesn’t save you from feeling jealous about him or wondering if one day he/she’s going to leave you (because you can never be sure about his/her feelings) but if you really respect him/her, focus on that feeling and try to foster it, all worries become empty. Nevertheless the terms are equal, you, too may also do all those horrible(?!) things to him/her and only respect can show us how nonsense it is to worry about endless probabilities. The main thing is your own feeling of respect which rules everything you live and share together. The rest is details of endless probabilities.

Similarly, the work you put forward may be appreciated and liked very much. You may be loved and regarded because of what you do. Well, do these save you from a skein of worries? Let’s have a look: “Is there somebody better than me (Sorry but “why not?, by the way… Anyway “better” is such a relative qualification), what has she done? has he liked it? So-and-so has said somethin about me. How will I prove myself? etc.” What will save from all these is respect, again. If you do this job with respect, You’d do it even if it did not provided you money/fame/admire. Since you engage with it like a child playing with toys, the appreciation of the others may please you, disparage of the others may sadden, surprise or interest you but ultimately the main point is how you respect that thing you do and how you forget everything around you when you’re being engaged with it.

To respect someone/something means living at the moment, minimizing your ego, maximizing you, being human, respecting yourself, feeling self confident, seeing rugged road as play ground. Yes, being respected is nice, too. It flatters us, makes us feel good but it never gives a full satisfaction as in respecting someone or something. So… To respect is the main point.
