How I Use the Self-Respect Marking
Sometimes, I find myself putting the needs of others before my own. This may seem like a virtue, but if it goes to the extent of harming myself to carry out this good will, in the long run, I am doing a disservice to myself and others.
One time, I found my health deteriorating drastically from putting a significant amount of time and energy toward someone.
By focusing on the Self-Respect marking, I can reel myself back from the good I think I'm doing and see the harm I'm doing to myself. I can begin to make efforts to return to taking care of myself. As they say, you can't pour from an empty cup.
