How to Gain Self-Respect

self respect

Do you have problems with respecting yourself and honoring your needs?

We are often our own worst critics. We tend to beat ourselves up for every mistake we make and every personal shortcoming we have.

This negative mentality is dangerous to our self-esteem and affects our productivity.

Once we decide to start respecting ourselves and realizing that we're worthy of respect, our lives become better.

Here are five tips on how to build self respect and start living your best life.

1) Make a Vision Board

One way to build self respect is to set goals for yourself.

Make a vision board full of the things you desire.

If you want a steady relationship, put that on the board. If you want a higher paying job, put that on the board. If you want a new puppy, put that on the board.

As human beings, we are always striving for something. Having a vision board gives you a visual representation of the things you're striving for.

This board will need updating as you start living out your goals and get new ones.

Simply taking the time to sit down and record the things you want on paper will make you more aware of yourself.

Think about the people you respect most in life. You probably respect them because they have goals, and you see them working towards them.

You too can develop goals and start to respect yourself more as you accomplish these goals.

2) Cut Back on Social Media

Social media is a ubiquitous part of modern life, but it isn't always healthy for our mental health.

It plants seeds of doubt in our mind as we compare our lives to those of our online friends.

You'll start feeling less pleased with your own life if you're constantly comparing yourself to others.

Social media sites cause you to post pictures in hopes of getting the instant gratification of likes or comments. When you don't get that gratification, you start to think you're not worthy and start to respect yourself less.

You wonder why your stellar profile picture got fewer likes than your best friend's pictures.

When you get off social media you start living life for yourself and not just for the "likes" or "retweets".

It's important not to grow obsessed with your online image. Instead, focus on how you see yourself and building self respect off the Internet.

3) Exercise Your Body

Exercising is amazing for your body, mind, and self-confidence. The more you exercise, the better you look and feel.

Physical activity releases an immediate hit of endorphins. Endorphins are feel-good hormones that trigger positive feelings.

When you have endorphins running through your body after a run, you feel like you could conquer the world. You start thinking more clearly and make better decisions because you're no longer stressed.

Taking the time out of every day to move your body also shows that you honor and respect yourself.

Staying fit and healthy takes commitment and vigilance. Working towards your fitness goals will build a sense of self respect.

The positive changes you will notice in your body shape will help you look and feel amazing.

4) Exercise Your Mind

It can be hard to respect yourself when you feel like you're wasting your time dawdling your life away.

Avoid this by using your free time in a productive manner to learn more about the world.

This can be accomplished by reading more news sites daily, reading books, or taking an online course.

There are several websites that offer free online courses on hundreds of different subjects. All you need to do is devote the time to learning something new and tackle the course material.

Becoming more knowledgeable is an easy way to gain self respect. It feels good to be able to talk about a subject with mastery.

5) Cut out People Who Don't Respect You

If you really want to start respecting yourself, get rid of the people who don't respect you.

People who walk all over you are toxic to your self-esteem.

If you continually allow them to treat you badly you are showing that you don't respect yourself.

Take inventory of your friendships and relationships. Decide if your friends truly value you or if they're simply using you.

It's easy to get stuck in a one-sided friendship where you're constantly giving the other person more than you're getting in return. If you're exceptionally generous or empathetic you might think you're ok with this situation.

In reality, however, you're setting a precedent that you don't think you deserve to be treated with respect.

Only surround yourself with people who care about you and your well-being. Connect with like-minded individuals who share your beliefs and values. It's a win-win for both.

When you have positive relationships with others, it's easier to have a positive relationship with yourself. Moreover, your confidence will increase.

Once you understand your personal goals and values, you can start the road to respecting yourself.
