We teach others how to treat us. When we do not treat ourselves with love and respect it broadcasts to the world that we do not expect them to do so either. On the flip side, when we hold ourselves in utmost respect, loving ourselves despite and including our imperfections, we show the world that this is how we are to be treated by all. It is a work in progress no matter how far we have come or how far we need to go. It isn’t arrogance. It is acceptance and gratitude.
