    Lightbulb Respecting yourself?????

    I was thinking what do you people think about respecting yourself

    For me this society has become so comercial that even our own bodies are on-sale... most of the time. The new fashions are to see who is showing more parts of the bodies, who has more holes because of percings, who is spending more money is clothes... Where is the respect for yourself??? I am not saying that you cannot wear whatever you want, but how often do you think if you are respecting your body with what you do to it?? Do you think you respect it with what you do?? I want to know what do you think about it...
    Maybe I am wrong and I am way too consevative... but i wnat to know what do you think...

    I think you have a point about fashion but as for how many piercings or how one dresses could go both ways. I dress how I want not how others want me to dress, I respect myself and that covers my whole self. Some people choose to get more piercings or dress as some would call "grungy" but if that person chooses to dress like that and is fine with it should anyone really be able to say that that person dosn't respect themselves cause of how they look? Thats my take on it.

    Re: Respecting yourself?????

    self respect...

    well.... that's one way of looking at it. but to me, self respect is all about the attitude u hold for urself not really about what u buy and stuff, or the way u look.

    like for example me.
    i do alot of stupid things with my money. like spend it on grog, random stuff, but mainly food (ie subway). and as for looks, well i really don't care that much. as long as i look half decent, like look clean, thats good enough for me.

    but do i have some self respect? my answer to that would be yes. cause self respect in my opinion is all about how u think about urself. like if u think ur a complete moron, act like an idiot and do pitiful things. now to me, thats a person that has no self respect at all. somebody that can hold their shoulders up high is a person with self respect. someone that can accept themselves as the complete idiot we all are.

    well thats my spin on it.

    lebasiara: mark this down as a Red Letter day, 'cause I'm gonna agree with you

    I too beleive that the world has become too comercial! You don't fit into the 'right' crowd if your clothes £50 each and don't have a tiny tag on them that says 'Ben Sherman' or some shite like that. I believe that these large companies should be paying us, as we're advertising their product and having to pay too much money for it.

    What about these new style jeans that are all ripped and frayed allready? People normally buy new jeans once their old pair have become 'worn', not new jeans that are allready wreaked. I personally avoid 'Brand' shops and the and my argument is that it's one of 'those' shops. For people who actually care what celebraties (ordinary people that don't do anything amazing like saving lives and finding medical cures) are wearing and that what other people think about them actually matters.

    As for Tatoos and Body peircings. Dosen't really bother me and can actually be really cool if not artistic. However, I'm sure if nature intended me to have lumps of metal in my skin/body I would of been born that way.

    As for Self-Respect. I don't really watch what I eat, but my intake of 'Junk' foods is so minute that it's not worth bothering about. Mentally, I don't care what people think about me as I don't see the point in trying to make other people like me, if I don't like myself for the things that I do to try and be liked. Confused?
    A man may fight for many things: his country, his priciples, his freinds. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a Ton of cash, an amusing clock and a stack of french porn!

    Re: Respecting yourself?????

    Hmm...well personally, respecting yourself doesn't just come with the clothes you wear and how many piercings you have on your body. It's also what you do with yourself...as you said, lebasiara.. I personally am always aware with the things I do and clothes I wear. I only have two piercings, and that's on my ears. I'm planning on getting another one on the upper part of my left ear, but that's all. Clothing, I try not to show my body. I do however, like tight fitting clothes. Not because it attracts others, but because it's just a style that I like. I often get comments from people that I look younger than what I am. Sometimes that's a good thing, and sometimes it's annoying ^ ^;;

    But I do think respecting your body does have to do with how you present yourself in public. It also has to do with respecting yourself...or self-respect. If a person is involved in promiscuous activites...then they aren't respecting themselves, and do not have self respect for themselves...

    But then again, it's only my opininon..

    Re: Respecting yourself?????

    You have a point to an extent. However, clothing and piercings are only two of a myriad of external expressions for a lack of self respect, both for your body, and for your own individuality. For example, is it really the invention of low rise jeans, waist-region tattoos, and skimpy lingerie that are the result of moral decay, the act of wearing the combination of those three, or the mental reasoning which led to such an act which is to blame?

    The real culprit is in the mind. Some "people" are just weaker than others, and fall for the most God-awful societal trends in history. Of course, you could be worse, and be the originators of those horrid "styles".

    There is a way to balance having respect for yourself and having a unique, artistic style in the form of clothing or physical presentation. However, filling your body full of metal and showing everything off you can isn't the way to do it.
