Someone has recently sent me the following “Please explain to me why some women dont respect themselves?” and I decided this would make a great post
Some women do respect themselves, unfortunately, they are the minority, not the majority. Far too many women don’t know what it means to respect themselves. See also Treat Yourself With Respect and Others Will Follow
I am sure that you have seen the type – they are the women who wear overly revealing clothes and hang on men when they go out. Or they are the women who stay in abusive, dead end relationships because they don’t think that they can do any better.
There are lots of reasons why a woman doesn’t respect herself.
Sometimes women learn from their parents that they don’t deserve to be treated well. Many of these women don’t even know what the words “boundary” or “assertiveness” means. And often these women don’t even realize that they have a problem, much less how to change their situation.
That is one of the many reasons that I created this website. I was so tired of seeing my friends – male and female – getting walked all over, thinking terribly about themselves, and not standing up for themselves. All of these traits can be overcome with the right knowledge, and the guts to put the information into use.
It is one thing to learn how to do something, it is an entirely different matter to put it to use.
There are some people out there who try to learn how to improve their situation. They research, read, and dream.
And then promptly forget everything that they learned because they don’t put it into practice. I know that change can be very frightening, especially when it comes to serious matters that touch your heart like relationships. But life can be so much better when you learn how to be assertive, establish healthy boundaries, and respect yourself.
This website is full of information that can help someone learn some skills and improve the quality of their life. Some of the skills I taught myself, some I learned from books or websites, and some of them were taught to me by friends and family.
If you want to change something, the fastest way to learn is from a mentor.
Learn from the people around you. By watching others, you can learn what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t understand what it is that someone is doing – how they are achieving the results that you want – then a website like this can teach you concepts and ideas.
Or better yet, you can ask your mentor what thoughts they think about a particular situation. That way, you can learn to think like they do. See the post Think Different and You Will Be Different. Just make sure that you aren’t one of those people who learn, but doesn’t act.
