    I really am glad to say

    that I admire men and women who have self respect. It is almost one of the worse things to see is older people acting young. I admire seeing older people act their ages. I seen 50-55 year old women writing stories about showing their bodies on web camera. Totally disrespectful...

    Honestly you can't find people with

    self-respect anymore ... I really admire a person who can take the time to really understand their self-worth . Exposing yourself isn't something you should take pride in , instead keep some of the mysterious beauty you have for your self ... now a days , everyone knows...

    I'll respect you if you respect me,

    and if you respect yourself. I hate people who demand respect when they clearly don't even respect themselves. You have to love yourself to love others. I'm not gonna care about someone who doesn't care about them, because why are they even gonna care about me? I want to love...

    When you start giving too much importance to

    someone in your life, you tend to lose your value in their life.

    I think having self respect is having the

    ability to look into a mirror and have a critical eye. Without letting your conscience govern most of the things you do, I feel, your self respect is in dome way either compromised or challenged. Self respect means you are at home with yourself. You aren't searching for...

    I believe self respect involves many aspects of

    kindness. You must be a kind person to actually have self respect, because the way you treat people is fundamental to how you see yourself. So, kindness to others includes kindness to yourself.

    People with self respect dont try to get

    attention. They don't make it something important they just look good. They have adoptable qualities. They aren't insecure. Seeing someone with self respect captures my attention.

    or no one else will!! I also believe that you have to give respect in order to receive it!

    Dammit. I'm going to start behaving with a

    little more self-respect starting now. No more fawning over him, he doesn't want me. That's fine. No recriminations. But I will have enough self-respect to stop throwing my self at him. I want to become what I admire.

    Self respect. There are few people these days

    who really think about self respect. They say the first thing that comes into their heads and don't think of the consequences. Self respect is an image thing, in part, and an attitude, towards others, but certainly towards yourself. Most people these days are abusive in some...

    Self respect has nothing to do with sex

    or nudity. Self respect means making choices that make you happy. I find it ridiculous how people equate self respect with giving at **** how people perceive you. People shouldn't cover themselves to please other peoples ignorance. Self respect is feeling comfortable in your own...

    The Way Forward

    I admire strength of character, an opinion (even if not shared by myself) and a voice that carries it without the need of shouting (maybe just a little raised voice) I can tolerate that... Anger I struggle with. It simply makes me angry and makes me shout even louder...

    A Better Place

    It is my opinion that if more people cared for themselves... had a little self-worth and self-respect they would find it easier to respect and care for those around them. I am not saying I am perfect, but I value myself enough not to be a doormat. And because I can do this, I...

    People who have self respect

    and act in a respectful, decent and dignified way are those that I then in turn respect. Took me a long long time to learn this. If you have self respect you can earn others respect but you can never get your own self respect through trying to gain the admiration of others...

    "Just because someone desires you doesn't mean

    they value you", never settle for less when you're trying to find that special someone, because even if it may take a lifetime, in the end it'll be worth it, finding that person for you just want to share your funny ideas or stories, your past.. Your future

    Showing respect towards others is always

    important to me. But having respect for yourself is more important. If you don't have self respect, or lack of it, how are you going to expect others to respect you when you can't even respect yourself? I'm not saying it's right for someone to disrespect you just because you're...

    Self respect is being

    self respect or self love?

    the ability to remember to put yourself first despite your natural desire to be there for others who don't deserve you? I'm having g trouble conflating the two.

    I admire people that have the dignity to

    demonstrate self respect in the way they present themselves and interact with others. If we don't stick to our principles by acting in a way that shows we have healthy self esteem, then I think that no one worth having in our lives would really want us.

    You're not just born with self respect,

    a lot of people don't know their self worth. I was one of them, I didn't realize my self worth was not linked to what others think or value of me. It takes a lot to have self respect, it is not just any quality, it is denying abuse, working hard for yourself, picking yourself up...
