It’s very easy to confuse selfrespect with ego. And these two words aren’t very different in their meanings either. Self respect is the respect you have for yourself, while ego is your understanding of your own importance. Self respect comes first, when you respect yourself and believe in yourself. And then comes your ego, which helps you realize just how important and special you are. What is your opinion friends? Please share.

Self respect is very important in our social-eco life because if you dont respect yourself no one wil also respect you and when you are even trying to express urself in a situation or in a problem by giving your idea about it no one wil give you hearbecause they wil take you as a mad person. Without selfrespect, a kid can even talk to you any how and even disgrace you Iin public. Wel, charity they say begins at home first

for me,respect is not something that you can ask for,buy or borrow.respect is what you earn from each person no matter their background or status.

Self Respect is a quality which is extremely important for the dignity, confidence and personality of an individual. People with self respect have the courage of accepting their mistakes. They exhibit certain toughness, a kind of moral courage and they display character.
Without self respect, one becomes an unwilling audience of one’s failing both real and imaginary.
To live without self respect is to live counting ones omissions and commissions] It is like lying down on an uncomfortable bed that we have made for ourselves! Whether or not we sleep in it depends on whether or not we respect ourselves.
A self respecting person accepts responsibilities for one’s own life and its this source from which self respect springs.
Such people are always willing to accept risks. They invest some thing of themselves in what they undertake to do and when they play they know the odds. Self respect is a kind of discipline, a habit of the mind that can never fail an individual.
Self respect is a kind of ritual which helps us to remember who and what we are. It is a sense of ones worth. It gives a person the ability! Discriminate, to love and to remain indifferent when one is faced with failures without self respect, one is locked within one self and is incapable either love or indifference. If we do not respect ourselves, we, on one hand arc forced to hate those who have it and on the other hand we become blind our weaknesses.
Without self respect, we are at the mercy of those, whom we hold i contempt, we play roles which are doomed to fail. It is a phenomenon which is some times called alienation from self to free ourselves from expectations of others. Without it, one runs away to find one self trying t desperately reach home and find no one there.
Self respect has nothing to do with the approval of others, and ones repute People with self respect do not seek the approval of others they woe for their own satisfaction. This is something only, which people courage can do.
Thus, self respecting people do not need the crutches others to walk with. Without self respect, one loses ones own identity, like trying to cross a border with borrowed credentials. Such people has low self-esteem, and lack confidence in their abilities. They are also respected by their fellow workers, relatives and friends. They are parasites, whose dependence on others, does not let them succeed in Self respect can be developed by thinking positively about oneself am by not trying to seek the approval of others in whatever we do.
Need to remember that respect for ourselves guides our morals, while rasped for others guides our manners for winning the respect of others, we ne to respect our own selves first. There are endless potentialities in each of us, hence we need to believe in our strengths and we need to repeat!
Ourselves it all depends on me”. Only when we love ourselves, gain confidence in our abilities believe in them and when we have a positive healthy self image will others respect us.. The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with ones own self thus life without self respect is not worth giving because it is bereft of all dignity.
For acquiring self respect, we need to learn who we really are and to accept ourselves as we are and live with that. It is better to displease people by doing what is right rather than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong. To sum up, Self respect is necessary for the happiness of Man.
