Respect is defined by the oxford dictionary as a feeling of deep admiration for someone who is inspired by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
Thus it means appropriate regard for the thoughts, desires or rights of others. It's a two-way road. Respect is reciprocal is a popular saying in Nigeria, and that simply means that when you give respect, you hope to receive respect in return. Reciprocity of consideration is key to the sustainability of a stable , healthy relationship.
Men want respect from their wives, and our society wants the wife to respect her husband in all scenarios.
Almost no one hears the expectation that a husband should respect his wife as well. Society has deliberately overlooked that the wives have flesh and blood, which is therefore deserving of respect.
1. Respect Your Husband Too.
The basic rule of life, which is also accepted by the Bible, is to do to someone as you want them to do to you. Life is simple; if you want your man to treat you with respect, you do need to treat him with respect. Because you will send, so will you also receive. No man should like to be disrespected.
Let your actions, from the way you speak to him, look at him, or respond to him, show that you respect him greatly. Take the time to listen to what he says. If you want your husband to pay attention to and respect you, you should learn to put him first in your life.
If you choose to disregard your husband and put your phone, children, friends , and family above your husband, you 're showing him that you don't love and value him. When you can let him know that he is valuable and that you value him above all else, my love, you 're on your way to get him to treat you the same way.
2. You need to grow up and stop acting like a baby.
One of the reasons why we don't show respect to women is that we act like children at times. If you throw a tantrum like a boy, you lose respect from your husband. He did something you don't want to speak to him maturely like an adult to work out these things instead of behaving like a kid and shutting down like six years old.
Life can be hard, but you can't keep crying, baby, all the time. It's okay to cry once in a while, particularly when you're badly hurt, just make sure it's not a regular affair. You 're not going to gain the love of your guy if you can't handle things maturely.
3. Get Educated about the happening around you.
If you'd like to receive respect from your husband, you need to expand the depth of your information. The fact that you're a mom shouldn't deter you from learning new stuff. Some of us don't really know what's going on around us. Your brain is full of the latest fashion, bags, as well as other feminine stuff.
You want your husband's appreciation, you want to add value to your life, you want to step up your games and learn stuff outside your profession. Men still admire smart women.
4. Keep your tone down and pleasant always around your man.
Most men don't really like the rude, insulting women around them. No man is ever going to appreciate a crappy, nagging woman. You want your husband to appreciate you, learn to talk with grace, and please, while at the same time, turn down the volume.
5. Learn to handle your husband.
Well you need to learn to handle yourself first. Always take a stand for yourself and give your opinion. Build your own voice and stand by it with dignity. The fact that you've grown and found your voice doesn't mean that you can stand up to your husband to prove a point.
Sure, do not even think you get cocky about yourself. Display that you are comfortable enough to stand with integrity behind your view. Most men wouldn't mind being confronted when they realize it's going to be mutually beneficial. Never try to make him look dumb or incompetent in front of his colleagues.
If you really do, you've touched a raw nerve, and I promise you that it's not going to end well. Offer your view as a solution to a major problem, although you let him take credit for it. He'll soon begin to show you some respect when you do this.
