A lot of people through dignity to the wayside. It's true. People do not look at how significant they themselves are, and they often will not subscribe significance to others. (It's just not in many's nature to give other people more regard for themselves if they don't give themselves regard at all.)
Because we're running into a society where people do not value themselves and one another, we run into conflicts stemming from a lack of compromise, compassion and common sense. We need to find a way to get past these attitudes and lift ourselves up.
We need to recognize that we are made with a purpose.
