“Respect yourself enough to walk away from anyone or anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy.”
One of the famous quotes which we all have heard and many of the people follows up the same because life can be much easier when you acknowledge your values – and when you make plans and decisions that honour them. Your values are the things that you believe are important in the way you live and work. They determine your priorities, and, deep down, they’re probably the measures you use to tell if your life is turning out the way you want it to.
if you do not understand how to appreciate yourself and your worth, how do you expect others to? Life is too short to maintain toxic relationships. In order for yours to flourish, you need to work on yourself first.
“Don’t expect anyone to love or respect you if you don’t fully love yourself first.”
If you don’t respect yourself then you won’t take care of yourself the way you should. By achieving this, you set boundaries for your life and your relationships. This will encourage people’s deference to you. You cannot allow people to treat you poorly and if they do, you need to recognize your worth and walk away and according to my experience it should be the paramount thing one can do because others cannot negatively influence your opinion of yourself; this will only lead to degradation of your worth.
Your life is like a house. There’s nothing wrong with dreaming about having nicer windows or changing the colours of the walls. But if the foundation is not strong enough, the house won’t hold the weight — it will collapse one day.
Well, most people don’t love their work. Many like it, some tolerate it, but it is a minority who find work they love that also supports their lifestyle. Does that mean that everyone else is left to live in frustration, desperately seeking that perfect job they can be passionate about? Not at all.
You can and should find enjoyment in your work. Doing so is very valuable to your life in many ways.
