Not feeling obligated to anything or anyone.
Keeping my dignity and also respecting others.
It means no matter what someone may say or do to me, I still respect myself.
To be true to the 'I' in me.
and to You?
From U, any Compliment brings forth the similar response.
Self respect is more of self evaluation of my own worth.
In easy words, if self respect is not there, insecurity comes in. And you would not like your own company...
Quoting from else where:
Every human being, with no exception, for the mere fact to be it, is worthy of unconditional respect of everybody else; he deserves to esteem himself and to be esteemed
It means my overall evaluation of my own worth, and my belief that I am competent to cope with the basic challenges of life and that I am worthy of happiness.
Doing my best because everything I do will reflect who I really am!
Being True to yourself! Doing what you know to be right and living your life with Honor!
Self-respect = Everything u earn in ur life
Always doing the right thing.
have confidence in yourself and believe in what you can and who you are
accept thyself....for who thee are....
Having the edge, or losing it
Good question! Not sure!
By not letting anyone degrade you.
Means your worth every second.
Knowing you did your very best.
Angel has it right. :)
people confuse self respect with ego.....they are different
ego is when you know you are wrong and dont apologize for a mistake
self respect is about creating limits or boundaries around yourself...which no one dare crosses...but at the sametime they should be flexible enough for your to lower...if u r at fault..and accept it respectfully
