Self Respect Quotes to Remind You Of The Importance of Looking After YOU!

Be Inspired by our collection of inspirational Self Respect Quotes to remind you of the importance of YOU!

As a wise man once said: "When everything else in the world fails you, you will always have your self-respect to fall back on." Self-respect, self-worth, self-confidence, and self-love are all keys to living authentic and happy lives. When we become masters of the 'self' we can then master life. You must honor yourself by respecting yourself!

Self-respect is not about being egotistical but about having pride in who you are. Having a healthy amount of self-respect aid us to focus on our strengths and propel us towards our goals in life. Self-respect is about having dignity and not letting others walk all over us and put us down, if people can see that we have an abundance of self-respect they are more likely to admire us!

The importance of respecting yourself is profound, it has a snowball effect on every part of your life. If you don't respect yourself then how are others supposed to respect you?

I feel like with this article I'm going a bit above the usual as I, (just like you) have issues with self-respect. I have spent my whole life trying to earn the respect of the people around me, unsure as to why I couldn't hold down a stable relationship or a good job.

With a highly successful family, I always felt like a bit of a black sheep. The one that couldn't make it. It took many, many years for me to put myself first and by doing so started to slowly but surely start to respect that I was unique and I had the potential to really push past these negative feelings of self-worth and start to climb the ladder. Before too long I was starting to notice that actually, I have set the bar too high, I'm a completely different person to anyone in my family, a black sheep, maybe, but at least I was unique! I had been shaped into someone that I wanted to be, not what they wanted me to be. I grew confidence from a seed and it finally bloomed into a weed that can't be killed. I LOVE myself in a non-narcissistic way, and I know that you can too! Turn that seed of doubt into a seed of self-respect.

I now have a beautiful family of my own that loves me for who I am, and a job that is unique to the lifestyle that I just couldn't be without! My web has been spun from that small boy with no self-respect, into a man that loves his life and most importantly I have respect for myself.
