Wisdom and Self-Help Tips
True Self-Respect and How to Uphold It Strongly
“The willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life is the source from which self-respect springs.” – Joan Didion
We are all aware of the concept of self-respect. It’s the simple trait of upholding your values and setting boundaries clearly when you need to.
Lack of self-respect brings a lot of problems and pain our way. If we don’t respect ourselves, we’re not giving other people any reason to do the same. And, if this keeps going it would lead us to resentment, low confidence, an inauthentic life.
However, as simple as it may be to understand it, we face challenges staying true to it and effectively practicing it.
There are people that we’re supposed to respect but their actions threaten our own self-respect, they can be elders in the family, colleagues, teachers, etc.
Then, there are limitations that we put on ourselves like valuing external validation more highly than internal, comparing ourselves to others and then feeling not enough, tolerations misbehavior to maintain politeness, practicing negative self-talk, and more.
So, to effectively respect ourselves, we must overcome these obstacles and learn how to take a stand calmly.
Here are my 6 tips that can help you strongly uphold your self-respect and live a life that you feel true to yourself:
- Commit to respecting yourself
- Define your values
- Love yourself
- Decline politely
- Set boundaries confidently
- Appreciate your journey

S Anderson's Story - Forever Grateful
This week, I want to share S Anderson's story with you.
It's a story about keeping yourself strong through the deepest pain and finding support in the smallest joys.
"It was the day my son died, I committed to improving my life.
It seemed impossible and seemed that I could not dare to breathe another day.
Unable to see any beauty in the world, on any day, and then there was my baby girl.
She needed me. And I needed her. I wished to be the best mum I could be, for her..."
