Respect is earned, while self-respect is learned. Here are some examples which will help you gain confidence from people who don't have time for anyone's BS.
In a world of manipulations, frauds, fake friends, and fast loves, having a sense of your worth and self-respect is not easy.
To gain positivity into your life, here are five behaviors that you won't see any self-respecting person doing.
No self-hate, only self-love
If you're trapped continuously in negative self-talk, a person with confidence won't be in your circle of friends.
First, the negativity is bringing everyone down, and secondly, it sounds like the wrong way to get attention. So, quiet the mind and focus it on loving everything you are.
Stop being bossy
People don't like to be around bossy personas, but the ones with self-respect will have the courage to walk away.
Being bossy is another sign of weakness. And the more you act like you invented the world, the less self-worth you get.
Don't try to control others
Controlling behavior is repulsive.
Self-respecting people don't like to be bossed around, let alone be controlled all the time.
If you're controlling, you're showing insecurities, and that's pretty transparent. Get yourself together, and face whatever it is that makes you want to control everything.
We are all guilty of self-sabotage. But some people are continually setting up themselves for failure.
No self-respecting person will tolerate that level of self-hatred. If you are always on the losing team, you need to work on yourself. Self-sabotage can be based on fear, and once you face it, you'll become a winner.
What drives you? If it isn't passion, you will never earn the respect of others.
People with self-respect will put themselves into their work. Not because they have to, but because they are proud to do so.
Being intentionally lazy has always been a sign of weak character. Find your passion, and let it run your life.
The biggest lesson here isn't what people with confidence won't put up with. It's that you can't demand respect if you don't have enough self-love and confidence.
