When you Respect yourself you would not want to violate your principles or your values.  When you are living in your own Integrities, you will automatically be respectful of others.  Buddha put it this way:  “Like a caring mother, holding and guarding the life of her only child, so with a boundless heart, hold yourself and all beings.”

It has been said, if you do not respect yourself, you cannot fully respect others.  The same is said of trust and the same is said of love.
