If someone I care about is upset because they made a mistake, I...

I most often feel confident and good about myself...

If I have advice for someone, I usually...

When I make a mistake or fail, I feel...

How often do I interrupt others?

When I bring up an issue with someone else, I end up apologizing without resolving the issue I had.

I feel nervous or uncomfortable when someone I love doesn't like a decision I made to do something, even if it is something I enjoy and doesn't harm anyone?

How hard is it to be patient with others when they are angry or disagree with me?

People might act like they like me, but I know they really don't.

It's easy for me to receive love from others.

I feel like I can't ever make my husband happy. He speaks harshly to me a lot and I don't know what to do or how to handle it...

I feel like my husband doesn't listen to me so I raise my voice or just drop it?

You are beautiful - and could become a woman of strength & dignity

Research shows that our respect for others is directly correlated to the respect we have for ourselves.

Results:
Your self-respect is low. This unfortunately means that your respectful treatment of others may not be received as impactfully as it could be. It could also mean that you do not treat others with respect.

I know you want to be a godly woman - and you can still be a Christian wife without being a doormat! If you have kids, you'll model for your boys how they should treat women, and you'll help your daughter see she is worth more than "maid status" in her family when she grows up.

And yes, it is possible to do things that only you are interested in, and yes, your family should be okay with you being how God created you.

Recommendations:
Establishing healthy non-punitive boundaries for yourself and learning how to respect yourself would be beneficial. Be careful as you implement boundaries, however, as your relationships can be damaged if this isn't done well.

Sometimes you might emotionally vomit on those you live with. Rethink that. It doesn't help. Dealing with your issues instead of ignoring them or letting things build up will serve you and others better.

Be careful about giving advice - make sure you only do so when invited into someone's situation. Just telling others what to do makes them feel like you think they are stupid.
