Self care is self respect. Sometimes you need to walk away. Not to make someone else realize how worthy you are, but for you to understand & acknowledge your own self worth. Don’t lose your dignity and self-respect trying to make people love and appreciate you so don’t ever dumb yourself down just to make someone else feel comfortable. You have to learn to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself. Happiness blooms in the presence of self-respect,and the absence of ego. Better to die on your feet than live on your knees. If you respect yourself, you will get it everywhere else.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. Cutting people out of your life does not mean they are unwanted, it simply shows your respect for yourself. People Will Treat You The Way You Let Them. If you don’t, others won’t either.
Remember the world sees what you put out there, so hold yourself to a high standard of grace and elegance.
Survival of the fittest is the mantra in today’s world. God has created human and every other creature in such a mode that they can adjust themselves to just anything and everything around. We sometimes even go against the nature,surprisingly can still sustain. I firmly believe in adjustments with the environment,people,things and even in relationships. Infact it is only when adjustments are done that all of these exist smoothly. Compromises are a part and parcel of human survival.
The catch is when self-respect is comprised as adjustment. There is a very thin line between ego and self respect. It is extremely important to identify that point in time. It’s that moment when one stands which side of the line he/she chooses to go with. If you let someone step on your self respect, there is no stopping then, they walk all over you-always!
You truly live your life only when you know the difference of adjustment and compromise with self respect.
