It is often said that if you don't love yourself, you can't love anyone else. I don't believe that. I believe however, that if you don't love yourself, you can't show anyone how to love you. Believe it or not, the people you meet want to love you completely, but it is your job to show them how to give you that love.
If you allow people to treat you disrespectfully or disrespect your time or generosity, you teach them that you are not worth their respect. People treat you how you allow yourself to be treated. Show people that you are worthy of love and respect through how you treat yourself and how you allow yourself to be treated. You are worth it.
