Never be an *option*.
It’s common to reject or punish yourself when you’ve been rejected by others. When you experience disappointment from the way your family or others treat you, that’s the time to take special care of yourself.

What you think of yourself is much more important than what people think of you.
Never beg for a relationship. Be brave to accept the one who really wants to be with you and reject the one who just pretends to be with you.
Cutting people out of my life, does not mean I hate them, it simply means I respect me.
If you don’t, others won’t either. Remember, the world sees what you put out there, so hold yourself to a high standard of grace and elegance.
If you don’t have respect for yourself, you won’t get it anywhere else.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or make you happy.
Before you respect others respect yourself first.
Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.
– Clint Eastwood
