If someone treats us badly, it is because we allow it. So, we can also stop it.
If we feel we should always be treated with respect and appreciation, our expectation will be naturally convey in our attitude, speech, actions and behaviour. People around us will perceive the message and behave accordingly. People perceive us on both a concious and subconcious level. Whatever they perceive directly impact their behaviour towards us.
So, everything boils down to our self image of who we are, how we deserve and expect to be treated. Our personal care, words, actions, behaviour and our body language are our messenger. If we feel we should always be treated kindly with respect, we would not put up with bad behaviour. Remember, all of us have a choice.
