The Lack of Respect in Today’s Society

It is a scary thought to imagine the lack of respect in our society. There is a part of society today that feels like they can do anything. The way people talk to each other and treat one another has been getting worse for quite some time now, the frequency with which people are making jokes about one another on social media is alarming. It is important to remember that we all have feelings and that what may seem harmless or funny for some, can be degrading and hurtful to others. This problem goes deeper, as it goes back to the family. 

  • How are they raised? 
  • How their family acts, that’s who they become?
  • What are their values? 
  • Who did these people work for? 
  • What do they do for a living? 
  • Do they have a high social interaction at their job or not?
  • How do their friends act on a daily basis?

People who are in immediate contact with one another most often influence one another. Depending on the circumstances, the type of influence can be either positive or negative. This is your sphere of influence — you begin to resemble them. According to research, you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. They will either lift you up or bring you down.

Most of these people who act in this disrespectful manner tend to believe that they are cool or badass, but it is the complete opposite. They behave in this manner because they are insecure, have low self-esteem, do not feel good about themselves, need to fit in or want to be the center of attention.

Everyone wants to be accepted and respected in society. Unfortunately, many people do not feel this way because they lack confidence or simply want to be accepted by their peers. However, it is upsetting that they believe it is acceptable to ruin it for everyone else, thinking highly of themselves by mocking others. These people need to learn respect or be taught about it.
