Humiliation and Respect
Where do you guys think respect comes from? What does it mean to respect yourself?
Do you have to earn your OWN respect?

I have to warn you first of all I'm tired and my concentration is a little naff.
Have you ever met people or had relationships with people that respect you for you.If so really focus on these interactions. Remember that pretty much everyone feels disrespected or laughed at and humiliated at some point in their life.
Do you ever feel guilty easily? I know I do this when I over emphasize with people

Perhaps I am speaking more to myself than to you because what I am going to write is easier said than done, but I believe it none-the-less.
When you feel disrespected poll yourself and examine what your own feelings and reaction to yourself are. IF you are feeling self-critical work on making that shift and feeling respect for yourself. You will be surprised at how significantly you will begin to see respect come back from others.

I agree with GreekDog but I'd add that respect is earned rather than commanded. You need to 'earn' your own respect as well as that of others. What do you think someone who you'd respect would look like, act like and so on? What would you get out of being respected, how would it feel? You talk a great deal about the feelings of humiliation but you need to imagine what respect would feel like. If you're able to at least imagine something, it's more likely to enter your life.
