I would say from my experience, looking for others to respect us is a wrong expectation !!! It's a kind of harming ourself ... No one knows us better than ourself.. If we respect ourself and give importance to our own thoughts, that's a huge honour.. Because, we know our potential in best way so that we don't look for others to respect us. If we are waiting for others, we've to keep look for others forever. I think this is waste of time....

Well Mohammed that's exactly why I'm doing this post, because I'm aware of my potential but still others are stepping on me and trying to slow me down.

It's not about asking for respect, it's more about how to deal with a total disrespectful attitude towards you for no reason and that's affecting your career.

I agree to you and I know you're potential and that's why being here. But still I insist no one can treat us disrespectful unless and until if you allow !!! May be you can say unrecognised at some time. If you feel that way try to grab their attention towards you. If you still feel the same way, you may try to make them understand that any human must treated respectfully. If you still feel they are not doing good for you... Please move ahead and find your peaceful place. But these kind of people everywhere... So we can't keep move. Just ignore them but still respect them and try to concentrate on your improvement and your well being... This is my own experience and not just comments.. I moved out of that project from dominated character of a manager... That's their attitude.. Just for the shake we can't allow anybody to pollute us. Finally, it's our wipp power to grab their positive attention...

Well this is absolutely not true... Sorry to say but people can step on you and treat you like they want to, specially if this person is a superior role than yours.

There's nothing much to do except changing your team or job...
