“…dignity is something you must hold on to in life if any relationship is going to work at all.”
– David Denby from The New Yorker
Maintaining dignity is difficult when human emotions are involved. People can become nasty and revengeful, whether it be in romantic relationships or even relations amongst family members or friends. I tend to become angry and extremely distant when I hit rough patches in relationships. It’s hard for me to keep calm around people who inherently disagree with my values. Dignity seems elusive; yet, a little goes a long way!
