You can’t expect others to respect you if you don’t respect yourself.
You never know of some people each time they open their mouth is like in a subtle way they are trying to put you down, these are negative people who need to be avoided. ~ Suzette Brown
I had family members who constantly put me down and I still treated them with respect. Until one day I realized, that I respected myself too much to take their crap any longer. So I moved on to better people. ~ Artemis Antoniou
