Paradoxes of Our Lives - The More We Respect Ourselves, the More the World Respects Us

Many time we think - the more we respect people, the less they seem to respect us.
Self-respecting leaf!

However it's not the right connection to make if we think we will get more respect if we disrespect others (though in some cases it may appear so).

The key is to respect yourself more (or equally) - and not to respect others more while disrespecting yourself.

Our first allegiance lies to ourselves - so the principle can go this way. Respect yourself first, in the way that you respect the microcosm of the world, and then the world respects you.

The world always respects someone who respects himself/herself.
