When you value self, you are good to self; that is good. Demanding respect, however, never gets respect; even if you think you’re getting it, you’re not. Further, lecturing someone on how you want to be treated does not appear to be the answer, either. Again, people respond in kind. Treat people how you want to be treated is useful. “He who has friends, must first show himself friendly.” She who has respect, must first SHOW herself respectful. ~Ellington L. Ellis~
