I Respect Myself and Do Not Let People Treat Me Like Crap

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 160 People

    So many on here do not.

    There is nothing to be proud about being the other woman or bit on the side. Both need to respect themselves more and he needs to respect his wife or girlfriend more. What do women gain? Bit of meaningless sex from a weak man. Many guys know they can not be one woman only men...

    If I Don'T, No One Else Will

    If I don't have respect for what I am and what I do, no one else will. My parents are both gone, and so are my grandparents. My oldest sister and her husband and sons moved away to North Carolina after Mom died. All I have left are my brothers, their wives, and my niece and...

    I Do Respect Myself And I Never Let Anyone Disrespect Me

    I don't really care who you think you are, it's just THOUGHT. Not fact. I don't care what anyone thinks when it comes to this. The last person who disrespected me was thrown out of the place I was in. And it will happen over and over. SCREW THAT. Not putting up with it.

    Where Do They Get Their Assumptions?

    I am opinionated. Some things, more so than others. I'll be the first one to admit to that. But some people read the posts on EP the wrong way, or see something that's not there, and the next thing I know I am being called a "dumbass" or "jackass" or something else less...

    Ha!

    I had to join this group for the simple irony of it. If you're in my circle you probably know by now that I have allowed someone to "treat me like crap" for the last 15 years. The funny thing is, is that I DO have respect and love for myself and have never tolerated being used...
