Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

Hey @j95 it is so great to have you here! You have mentioned some excellent resources Smiley Happy


My entire life can be described in one sentence: It didn't go as planned and that's okay. ツ

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

Hey @j95! Woohoo can't wait to chat to you Smiley Happy 

 

You raise some really really good points! I agree, it could be really difficult to seek help in a tricky situation where there isn't much respect. Do you think there is a point where you have to put yourself first though, even though others might find out about it? Close friends might be easier to open up to? 

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

Here is the app you asked for @Ben-RO! It is just the gov website so I don't have to link in 2!

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

Hmm I really like your points for reasons why people don't act sometimes @j95 especially that it's too damn hard! Being dis-respected can take a lot of energy, the conflict is draining and so knowing you have to spend more energy to resolve it can be the last thing you want to do! 

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

@Lahna I think a lot of people feel ashamed about it, even if they don't do anything wrong so that feeling makes it that much harder to open up

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

This brings me to the next question of our GR tonight! Smiley Happy We all need to respect ourselves enough to speak up when we really need it but.........

What are some things you need from others to feel respected? This could refer to respect in the workplace, at school, at home with the family, in a relationship, or even when you are out with your friends.

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

Exactly @Ben-RO it can feel like resolving it is just another thing to deal with on top of what is already happening

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

@j95 it is so true. And then there is the stigma around it. Smiley Sad Why do you think people are ashamed of it?

Re: [CHAT]: Respect for Yourself and Others

That's true @j95. It's sad that it can have that effect and I really hope those people can cultivate the courage they need to let someone know. And if in doubt- we are here to help at RO.

For me to feel respected, I need to feel like I am being listened to. That is my number one thing, well that and respect for my personal canoe (read bubble). I need to feel safe, people to be honest with me, to be supported, people to be accepting of me as I am. Also, there needs to be trust and accountability. So for me, that means that respect is given, not earned as it comes from benefit of the doubt.
