this week's affirmation is…
i deserve respect, je mérite le respect
respect is something that is often earned rather than deserved solely based on one's existence
however, strengthening self-respect is an important aspect of personal growth and well-being
it involves valuing and honoring yourself as an individual, setting healthy boundaries, and maintaining a positive self-image
remember to treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding that you would offer to a friend
respect your own limits, and boundaries and don't allow others to violate them
make self-care a regular part of your routine, by getting enough rest, eating healthily, exercising, and engaging in activities that bring you joy and relaxation
spend time with people who uplift and support you while distancing yourself from toxic relationships or individuals who undermine your self-respect
and, embrace your imperfections and flaws as a part of what makes you unique
remember that this is a journey
be patient with yourself and stay committed
