Speech on Respect

Speech on Respect in English for Students

Respect is a universal act of displaying admiration and love for another person. Respect also inculcates a positive feeling in something or someone who you consider important or hold in high regard. Respect can be individualistic which is respect for one’s own self that is self-respect, and the other one being respect for others. In this article on Speech on Respect, we will take a look at different ways to speak about respect. It can be given as Long Speech on Respect, Short Speech on Respect Or Short Speech on Self Respect.

Long And Short Speech on Respect for Students

Long Speech on Respect

This form of Speech on Respect for Others is helpful for students in grades 8-12.

Good Morning everyone respected Principal, Teachers and my dear friends. I am here to speak about respect. Since childhood, we hear from everybody about how it is important to show respect to everyone in the family, grandparents, elders and teachers. Respect is basically a language that one expresses differently for every one they hold in high regard and feel respectful towards. 

Respect is shown differently in different cultures. In our country, India we say Namaste with our hands folded and bow or touch the feet to show respect when we greet each other. This cultural tradition is an ancient one and everyone around the world also has adopted this way because of the meaning and value it holds. 

Each and every individual is worthy of respect regardless of their age, class, profession, colour or gender. 

And the meaning of Namaste also conveys the same, which means we are equal, and I respect you by bowing down. 

In the schools and colleges, we can also convey respect by addressing our teachers as Sir and Ma’am instead of calling them by their first names. Whereas this form of addressing does not hold true for the corporate culture. In offices, it is encouraged to call each other by their first names to develop a healthy working relationship without any biasedness. 

So much respect is shown by physical gestures but much more can be conveyed by body language. One can also be respectful to their friends and loved ones, by giving them undivided attention when they are speaking, being helpful, not using harsh words, opening the door for the one behind you, being kind is also a sign of respect. Apologising for one’s mistakes, saying sorry, please, and thank you is also a sign of respecting the other person as well as yourself. 

The other form of respectful behaviour also holds true as to how we behave with ourselves and that is called self-respect. Self-respect is basically leading your life with grace and dignity without hurting others in the journey. Self-respect has nothing to do with humiliating others for fulfilling our own agendas. It means showing care towards self and others equally and living a fulfilling life.

In conclusion, I would like to say one need not be loud when being respectful, these subtle gestures are enough to convey your admiration and love for the person. Respecting and honouring someone is truly a great sign of love; it makes the day positive. It also makes you feel better about yourself so choose your way of respecting others and yourself and do not indulge in negativity.

Thank you.

Short Speech on Respect for Students

Short Speech on Respect can also be presented as Short Speech on Self Respect and this will be extremely useful for students in grades 4-7 that will help them learn about this topic in simple words.

Good morning everyone, I Abc (mention your name) feel very honoured to speak on the topic of respect which is something that is so important, universal and yet so personal. Respect is a sign language that conveys what you feel for the other person in a simple and positive way. There is a saying that goes, “treat others the way you wish to be treated”, and if you wish to be respected it is important that you also treat others with equal respect. 

When you admire someone and hold them in high esteem it is natural that you tend to be more respectful towards them. Being respectful to others and treating them in an equal manner also means being respectful to yourself. As anyone who displays respectful behaviour imparts positivity in everyday life and this way of leading life is more peaceful and less complex. 

Respect can be displayed in many different ways depending on the relationship you have with the person you admire or the situation you are in. It is important to respect everyone regardless of whether you disagree with them and have different opinions than them. 

Being respectful doesn’t require a lot of effort, rather one needs to do it with just good intentions and value the presence of another person and acknowledge their view. And the world will be a much better place if we just accepted and respected our differences.

Thank you.
