No thank you!! I already have self-respect, meaning I do what I want when I want to, because I respect my choices!!!!!
Maybe you should learn respect for others!
Since you haven’t learned to respect others why should they?
I’m sorry (not sorry), what? I don’t understand what you’re trying to say. Are you implying that I don’t know how to respect people because I’m respecting myself??????????
I’m not attacking you. I’m trying to say that respecting yourself isn’t doing what you want when you want to. Self respect is knowing who you are and what you stand for. It’s about having pride in the decision you make. Waking up in the morning and thinking, knowing, that you’ve got your shit straight.
Doing what ever you want when ever you want is a little childish and naive. It’s excluding the input of others. And yes, you can say “I don’t give a shit about what other people think! Fuck them! Who needs those people anyway!” And you’d be right in a way. Don’t always worry about what other people say. But you should RESPECT it. Because life isn’t just about us.
If you always act like doing you is all there is, you won’t get far.
In the business world, and in your social life. Relationships are built off of mutual respect. And if your idea of self respect is distorted. It’s not all that big a step in saying your understanding of respect for others is twisted.
Life is a series of rooms. Life is all about the people we spend time with in those rooms. Eventually we open a door and venture forth into another room. Wether it be bigger or smaller, some friends will follow, some will stay behind. But in the new room, you will meet new people. And maybe, just maybe, if you treat them with respect, and care, they will follow you though the next door.
But I digress. Self respect means not using alcohol, drugs or violence to solve problems. To overcome and oppress those who bring you down. Whatever hurts you only makes you stronger. It’s to think that you are a good person, but not to the point of arrogance or narcissism. But yes. If you see a dumbass post like this from radcupcake, flip your shit. They deserve it.
