Respect and trust are different currencies.
If you want to be respected, you have to trust.
If you want to be trusted, a transfer of respect is required.
Each has its own value based on how you’ve transacted previously and how others value them.
If you want people to trust you, it is entirely on you to understand the trust:respect exchange rate which they are currently operating with. If you’ve devalued their trust, expect little respect. If you devalue their respect you set a very high bar for trust next time.
