Most human characteristics are visible. Some can be faked, like confidence. Nearly all are bestowed by others and precede us throughout social life.

But dignity is personal and private. Dignity is perhaps the only human characteristic that is totally our choice. Nobody can take it away, and you don't have to wait for someone else to Grant it.

To be true to oneself, ones values and morals.

For me it is something from within me, self respect, living an authentic life being true to es self.
The only way it can be taken away is to be forced to live or die in a way that I no longer respect myself.

I think it's something we should be grateful for to our Judeo-Christian heritage.

Every living person is important and valuable, and this value has a name: dignity. It is an inherent quality that reminds us that no one has the right to use us. It tells us that we are free, valuable creatures, responsible for our own lives, and deserving of respect.

Dignity is not like a key we keep in our pocket and sometimes give to others for safekeeping. Dignity is not a material possession. It is a non-transferable, unconditional, individual, and private asset that we all have. Never leave it with anyone; never sell it. Keep it with you ALWAYS.

For me having dignity is also recognizing others as our equals, no matter their state, situation, origin, status, or race.☺

My dignity is self generated, I require no external validation because I only present my authentic self.
I have been mocked, bullied, beat, abused, and neglected.
None of it has much to do with who and what I am.
But most people are superficial.
I had to become anti-social to learn to be independent and then re socialized to pass on what I learned.
Not an easy thing considering how we're biologically evolved to be social.
Few walk my path, it requires to much strength for most.

I can relate!
