Self-respect is the key to loving yourself completely and leading a healthy life. Additionally, if you learn to attain self-respect early in life you're setting yourself up for a bright and fulfilling future!
1. Only Settle for What You Deserve
Each one of us should know what we deserve to have in life (hint: that's a lot!) but sometimes we find ourselves settling for less than this. This is unhealthy for a number of reasons but mainly because we will only end up feeling unsatisfied and unfulfilled with what we're receiving rather than what we deserve to receive in comparison.
Respect yourself by knowing what your standards are so that you always know the point where you should settle in any given situation, or you can walk away and keep searching!
