The Bitch knows that her rules may change over time. She knows that it’s important to study and practice them:
Old Life rule: I treat everyone with love and respect.
Problem: I discovered I wasn’t giving myself the same loving patience I give others. http://bitchlifestyle.com/2009/05/impatiencea-virtue/ I now expect the same patience from those I care about for me. This led to refining that life rule and morphing it into a Bitch Rule:
Bitch Rule: My family, friends and acquaintances treat me with the same loving patience and understanding that I honor them with. I honor myself by treating me with the same loving actions.
Over time, as you respect yourself more, pleasurable things begin to happen. I love having doors opened for me wherever I go. I discovered how much I loved this respectful behavior from men and this action multiplied. Friends notice and comment on it. They say “that never happens to me.“ I tell them it would if you desire and enjoy it.
Respect for yourself multiplies in other areas, too. I don’t get hurt or angry any more from random disrespect. I communicate much more effectively my displeasure. If someone is having a bad day, it’s not my fault. Why take it personally? Taking random disrespect personally is a time waster. There are so many other things to enjoy!
