Self-Respect matters…

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!

Exacting revenge? Nah, not for me!

Crimes of passion are often due to an emotional drive for revenge.

Remember this… revenge is an unpleasant contorted, irrational emotion.

In order to unleash its wrath on your human target, one has to find and drag its toxic source out from a very unearthly evil place.

Being emotionally and deliberately hurt; particularly from someone once trusted and or loved, can generate that ‘get even’ reaction. But remember this, the face of that reaction is damned and ugly.

Look away, walk away and the hurting feeling will eventually go away.

Look, what goes around will sooner or later come around. So remain dignified, be respectful to yourself – doing so will surely garner even more respect and admiration from those who are real and truly care.

Do not ever reflect (the hurt), instead choose to deflect.


Knowing who matters, matters!

How many times have you given your precious time, the resources of your mind, and your caring emotions to people that have no intention or interest in returning your selflessness?

Not a pleasant experience right?

If this is something that you’ve experienced, or living through as you read this blog, here’s vital information that may help you to change your approach; put sweetly and profoundly into words…
