Transcript of Self-Respect Respect Community Assembly Autumn Term 2010

Self-respect How do you react? Take bullying... The Oxford English Dictionary defines ‘respect’ as: having a due regard for the feelings, wishes, or rights of others; avoiding harming or interfering with others and feeling admiration for someone or something because of their abilities, qualities or achievements. To have respect for others and to earn the respect of other people, we must all first have a sense of self-respect. Respect Healthy self-respect is when a person likes themselves -- even when they fail at something. Self-respect demands honesty. We cannot lie to ourselves and so self-respect is impossible when we know we are doing the wrong thing, taking the easy option, following the crowd rather than acting in the way we know is right. We all complain when we feel that we are not shown enough ‘respect’. But remember, respect has to be earned by our actions and sometimes the hardest person to convince is ourselves. The willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life is the source from which self-respect springs.  ~ Joan Didion Not giving up when the going gets tough, taking responsibility for your own learning. Work and self-respect That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.  ~ William J.H. Boetcker Respect yourself and others will respect you.  ~ Confucius What is it? But what is this and how do we develop it? As an example, think about how you behave in difficult situations. Do you join in with bullying behaviour? Run across the playground to watch? Film it on your mobile? Do you refuse to be involved, turn your back, ignore it, hope you won't be picked on yourself? Or do you make the tough choice and stand up to the bullies, help out the victim? Another example: What is your reaction when the going gets tough, when a lesson is hard work and you don't immediately understand?
