It’s a feeling, sense, understanding that someone or something is the serious, important and should be treated that way, and appropriately.  That is the foundation of a healthy relationship, being an emotional priority for each other.  If there is no respect, if someone is not considering the other as a priority in any way, not treating the other in a way that shows kindness, awareness of how their actions affect the other person then there isn’t a foundation of respect.  Something to consider..
