Self-Respect is healthy boundaries, it is calm stability, it is self-empowerment.
We are all powerful creative individuals. We all have the same human right to create our view of our world, to be in it successfully. It is not to go blindly. We must learn from others and our mistakes, we just need to be able to discern bad messages and to let them go rather than to make them our blueprint to follow and believe it.
When we let others take advantage of us, it is an act of self-disrespect. A person with little self respect sees situations as double-binds, damned if you do, damned if you don’t. The person with healthy boundaries doesn’t put the other off, but maintains a healthy space because they are not buying into the blueprint that says they should accommodate another just because they are being asked to.
We all need to compromise and learn while holding respect as a top value. Because everyone should have healthy self-respect and should support that in others. So when you meet a person with low self value, it is our human virtue, that knows we need to help that person, not take advantage of them.
Peace to all. Together We Are One.
