Respect

"When I learn to respect myself, other people will respect me. How can I develop respect for myself ? By keeping my mind positive and encouraging myself to grow and change for the better.
Demanding respect because of my position or background is simply arrogance. On the other hand, listening with humility and valuing other people's advise naturally earns me respect.
I get back exactly what I give out."
Do you agree?

  7. Hi Surjit,

    Thanks for sharing this great truth!

    Indeed, demanding respect because of one's position or background is simply arrogance.

    Let's be humble, always willing to lend our ears, remember to be appreciative to other's advice and in return we may earn the respect.

    Blessings to you, Surjit.

    Definitely, the more you respect yourself the more others respect you. I've heard that others attack you where you attack yourself, and that's so true - and just another way of putting it.

    What a good message for us all. We have to respect ourselves before anyone else will. We owe ourselves that much.

    To a large degree, I agree with that. Respect has many aspects to it - consideration, thoughtfulness, sensitivity, courage, dignity, etc.
