Self-respect

« Glossary Index

Proper esteem or regard for the dignity of oneself.

Self-respect is about having a sense of honor and dignity about yourself, your choices, and your life. Having respect for yourself is vital in maintaining a positive self-image by allowing yourself to feel confident in who you are and content with the person you are becoming.

To retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.

William J. H. Boetcker
