Kindness and Respect

Being a kind-hearted person helps you and it helps others.  Kindness fosters cooperation in the world and  helps us to move forward in our global awareness and evolution. However, being kind-hearted isn't the same thing as allowing others to use you or disregard your wishes and needs. That sends the message to the universe that it's okay to treat you that way, so others will come along to reinforce that concept. Treat yourself with the respect you deserve and others will too, or they will leave your life and be replaced by those who do. Although it may feel frightening to let go of those people who do not treat you with respect, you need to do it for your sake and theirs too, for how will they ever learn to treat others with honor and respect with you encouraging them not to treat you that way?
