Some say respect is earned,
I say it's returned
only after it's lost.
Firstly, respect is given,
and we often forget this.

If it seems as if someone has lost respect for you, don't bend over backwards to somehow "earn" it back, be, be respectful, and allow the other some space that they may gratefully "return" it like something borrowed that is needed by both.
