Disrespect is damaging to healthy human interactions.

One way to know someone cares about you is if they respect you. As Miguel Angel Ruiz said, “Respect is one of the greatest expressions of love.”

When we engage in behaviors that disrespect others, we show our lack of appreciation for them. This erodes trust, fosters negativity, and undermines relationships.

Here are seven behaviors that are disrespectful, even though they don’t always look like it.

Ghosting Someone Without Explanation

Ghosting is a behavior that signals an utter lack of respect in subtle yet profound ways.

It doesn’t matter what someone says; they don’t respect you if they find it convenient to blank you out at any given chance.

You met someone new, be it through an app, a mutual friend, or at a social event. You’re vibing, sharing laughs and plans. The initial conversations are promising; a connection sparks and a potential bond forms.

Then suddenly, crickets. Just as swiftly as the conversations began, they abruptly halted every contact with you.
