    So Do You!

    We all do, but in order to make that happen we must first learn to have unconditional respect for others until such a time as we believe we have a right to think otherwise.

    Self respect is so important. So many people lack self respect and it makes me sad. You need to respect yourself if you want people to take you seriously
