Self-respect increases when one learns to converse positively
The usual way to talk to the self is to talk to the most superficial aspects of the personality, those which are related to fears (including those of the future), complaints and mindless repetition of things in the past. Such talk to the self only lowers the self-respect to a great extent.
Not only when our mind is going towards waste and negative, but at all times, it is important that we talk to the mind with love, as we would talk to our children. Like a mother would lovingly explain to the child, we need to teach our mind with love. This creates true happiness within and our self-respect increases.
