When you love and respect your own self, only then you can extend that love to others. If loving another means demeaning our selves, overlooking our emotions simply to please another then it is better not to love at all.

If you don’t love and respect yourself, it’s difficult to love and respect others. And also to receive love and respect from others. Love is not servitude. It should give you wings, not chop your legs. Don’t let love take self respect away. If it does, it wasn’t love in the first place

I don’t think love should require giving up self respect. In fact it should make you value yourself more, to have someone who accepts and loves you. And if given a choice, I will choose self respect as anything that makes me lose self respect wasn’t love at all in the first place
