That's exactly right! We aren't mechabed anyone who is one the gesher - stuck in this world, rather we are mechabed those whose value is in shamayim.

You've incorrectly translated מכבדים . It means "to make heavy". In other words, the expression means that we don't make our lives "heavier" by bridges.

Of course we don't. We have so many difficulties in our lives already. The expression is another way of saying, "Cross the bridge when you get there." I.e., don't add imaginary heavy bridges that aren't necessary, now. Deal with the heavy bridges only once you need to.
