When your mind creates upheaval, practice self governance. As you learn to rule your own thoughts with patience and kindness, you will better serve your aims.
Sometimes you must burrow to find the good qualities in your nature that have gone underground and then coax them to the surface. Stopping for a moment and being silent can bring the steadiness you need for this task.
Self respect is not a matter of what you are doing in your life, but rather of how you are doing it. It requires that you bring quality and virtue into each action, whatever that action maybe.
