Show respect for all people [treat them honorably] … 1 Peter 2:17a  AMP

Try this one on.

Words or actions expressed toward another showing high esteem or regard. It includes honoring that person by exhibiting care, concern, or consideration.

There are probably many more nuances that could be included in this, but for today talk to God about respect.

He told us to respect others. What is that supposed to look like?
