one's sense of inherent worth.

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Self-honor (self-respect) is in no way selfish.
Before I can give to others,

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

If anything, it is of even more moment to honor yourself.
Those who are successful and happy earn their own
self-respect and self-esteem.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
