As Darren Hardy has said, “people will respect you as much as you respect yourself and they will disrespect you as much as you tolerate it.”
We owe it to ourselves to protect ‘us’ as much as we would a beloved family member.
We seem to justify if people disrespect us, but wouldn’t tolerate any if it came to someone we loved.
Why is that? Not sure. But, it needs to stop.
Taking care of the ‘self’ is not selfish. Taking care oneself is courageous. Strong. And brave.
Let’s not fall into the trap of justifying someone’s disrespectful behavior towards us. We deserve better. All of us do.
Your self will thank you.
