I see so many people being disrespected, and for some reason, they allow such behavior to continue.
Quite often, it is usually the person you are most close with that will disrespect you, be it family or friend or more often than not, your ‘loved’ one.
But why does this strange paradox exist?
If you don’t respect yourself, ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot!
Says The Staple Singers!
If there’s one thing my late parents taught me, is to never allow anyone to disrespect me, and in order to do that, I have to respect myself first!
If you have read my blogs, you will know I will give people 3 chances and after that I will walk away, I will not tolerate repetitive rudeness. Once may be a mistake, twice is taking advantage, thrice is my red line, it STOPS right there!
If you get to the third stage of disrespect that person senses you don’t respect yourself and hence, that person has in effect become a manipulative bully and will abuse you whenever they wish. If you allow such behaviors to continue, you will have minimal control over the perpetrator, seriously zero to minimal!
So when you go to sleep tonight, think just how much do you respect yourself, really just how much???
Remember your instincts are triggered for a reason… listen!
