It may not sound immediately intuitive, but an important way of respecting your husband is by respecting yourself.
We’re at our best in all aspects of life when we love and respect ourselves. In a relationship, your own self-respect can make your husband feel respected because you can sincerely accept his love, praise, and devotion.
If you don’t respect yourself, and your husband tells you that you’re beautiful, what is your response? Typically, it’s a denial, such as, “Oh, I look terrible today,” or “You just want something”. His love will be met with incredulity, and his praise, with little emotion.
Work at finding the abundance of greatness and inherent human value that is within you, and realize that you are lovable, beautiful, and valuable. This is, most importantly, essential for your own wellbeing, but it also fulfills a need in your husband—the need for his expressions of love to be sincerely respected.
