The Wisdom of the Fathers says, "Who is worthy of honor? He who honors others." Find ways of honoring yourself and others. Often we focus on what is worst in ourselves. Instead, focus on what you do that is worthy of honor. This will increase your sense of self-worth and enable you to do more that is worthy of respect. Do the same for others. Notice what is worthy in them and make a point of acknowledging it. It is so easy to tear others down and so important to do the opposite. The more you uplift and honor others, the more you honor and uplift yourself.
