through true self-respect
Marcus Aurelius said in the second century A.D., "Never esteem anything as of advantage to thee that shall make thee break thy word or lose thy self-respect." Meditations, Bk. III, Sect. 7; Losing self-respect is not the big problem for many today; gaining it in the first place is. The ability to feel a high regard or esteem for oneself is something that many do not have.
Most of us have things we don't like about ourselves, and sometimes we even suffer from the deficiencies we find. Perhaps we blame them on heredity, environment, racial background, education, or just bad luck. No matter what the reason appears to be, self-respect suffers when such reasoning is indulged in, and these comparisons lead to envy, bitterness, and self-depreciation.
