Has anyone wondered ever, What Respect Means?

Well! we all know the generic meaning of the word. It is a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

What is Self-Respect?

It is the pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity.

How is Self-Respect different from Respect?

Self-Respect is what I think/feel about myself while Respect is what others think/feel about me, right?

When both are different, then why does their thoughts start affecting me? Am I driven by their words or actions and I also start thinking their way? If Yes, then that’s not what we want in life, right? Only we know our reality, our journey, our battles, etc. The story others know need not be true. In fact, most of the times it’s not true. Then, why do we allow their penetration in our thoughts.

What they do speaks their reality. Let’s understand that others need not always inspire you. Many can bring you down by saying all the irrelevant things based on their experiences. We must have the clarity  that, whether the person is close to our heart or not, we take only the learning and not start imagining it to be a part of our life.

Guess this happens with many of us. So, let’s start working on ourselves to become more self-aware about our reality, stay true to our inner-self and try as far as possible not to get affected by unpleasant things in life – could be verbal or physical even. Problem starts when we become a part of their reality because we automatically start feeling incomplete from within, not able to stand for ourselves. Let’s find out ways and means to deal with all such difficult situations in the best possible manner by reflecting our true character.

Let’s all pledge to be unique and not try to be the Best. Being Best means “The Number One Amongst Many” but being Unique means “The Only One”.
