What Are You Worth?

Do you have self-respect?  To have self-respect is to have pride and confidence in oneself due to a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity by having a proper regard for oneself as a human being.  I asked this question because many so called Black, Latino, and Native American women today have very low self-respect or esteem and don’t even realize it.  There are several things that determine how high one’s self-respect is and the following is a description of a few of them.
