Self-Respect


v    Self-Respect: One of the sign of a healthy person is the way we treat ourselves. How well we care for our personal needs such as hygiene, healthy eating and exercise and adequate amounts of sleep. Respect toward yourself includes the words you say to yourself. Being disrespectful to you is destructive to your growth and development as a person. Calling yourself names drags you down and helps keep you from living up to the best you can be.

      “Respectful talk includes the words you say to yourself. When you call yourself names it drags you down and keeps you from living up to the best you can be.”

      “When you take care of yourself it shows me you are growing to be a responsible person.”

      “When you put healthy habits into your life, it shows me you are ready to have more privileges.”
