A forum for Healers and Seekers
Most men would like to be respected for their position, contribution and for being the man of the house. When people in the family use derogatory remarks and manifest showdowns in private or in front of others the masculine pride often gets wounded irreparably. They eventually may gravitate where they find more respect. This defensive attempt increases the rift.
Women and children in the house love to be adulated for being who they are. Repeated Insults, criticism, fault findings, ignoring their efforts to gain more attention can be detrimental to their self-esteem as well as the relationship.
Irrespective of your qualification, position, salary structure or family background, you certainly like to be respected or adulated by one and all around you.
For some reason, if you are not getting the kind of respect or adulation you deserve from a particular person or a group of people in the now; or iif you are being oversensitive to disrespectful people or situation, now, it is the best time to address that.
I have found the following conscious and subconscious reasons behind the possibility of disrespectful behavior from others.
Well, even if you really love to, you can not control, beg, demand and ensure that others will all the time genuinely respect you for everything you have achieved done and been so far. If you have tried your best and not succeeded, it is time to rise beyond your need for the respect from those who matter to you now or perhaps mattered to you in the past.
As a rule, start giving yourself what you expected others to give. How can you respect and adulate yourself today?
Do you look in the mirror every day and say 'Wow! What an amazing person I am?' If yes, wonderful. If you don't do that, how can you expect your loved ones to adulate you all the time?
Do you respect your time, money, routine, body's need for nourishment and sound sleep? Do you respect your commitments and promises made to yourself and others? If not perhaps, it would be unfair to expect others to respect you as well.
You often ignore, neglect and disrespect yourself in your desire to gain respect from others. It is high time, you withdraw your attention from others. Start respecting and adulating yourself.
There are two benefits of respecting and adulating yourself.
If you are alive, you have a role to play in the universe. You are needed and you are contributing by being who you are. Respect the wonderful opportunity called life. Respect of your being. You deserve a round of applause for choosing to play the role you are playing at the moment. Adulate your body, bones, muscles, organs who are playing a fantastic role and contributing so well.
Irrespective of your social, political, educational and professional background, you are indeed a respectable one. You deserve a round of applause.
Cheers to this life. Cheers to your presence. Cheers for just being you!
