“Self-respect, self-worth, and self-love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.” ~Rob Liano …
If only everyone had the ability to see themselves as worthwhile, and treat themselves with respect and love. There would be far less crime, much less hatred towards one another, and a greater level of happiness among humanity. Those of us who are always down on ourselves would begin to find ourselves living different lives, lives that include being more positive and treating others with the same respect and value that we see in ourselves. We would begin to experience greater success in our endeavors and experience a deeper sense of purpose, joy, and happiness that is not dependent upon outside forces.
But this is not the reality of today. There are many among us who still do not know self-respect, self-worth, and self-love. Therefore, we are each tasked to be a person who brings some of this into their lives–by example, by teaching them to recognize the importance of these three things in their lives, and by helping them whenever they fail. We all fail at times–we forget, we lose focus, we get upset or angry, or we feel overwhelmed. This is why we need each other to lean on.
Help others to discover the importance of valuing themselves in life. Be there for them as an example of self-respect, self-worth, and self-love. Above all, make sure you always treat them with the same dignity, respect, and love we all deserve.
Show appreciation to others today.
Questions to consider:
Do you look for your self-worth inside or outside of yourself?
Is it easy to treat yourself with true respect, dignity, and love? What allows you to do so? What hinders you?
Do you teach others the principals of self-respect, self-worth, and self-love?
