Having high standards does not mean you look down on people. High standards means there are things too valuable to compromise about yourself, like morals your integrity and values.
A person of high standards has more integrity than the usual person. They have strong morals and they are wise enough to be able to look ahead and see the potential for trouble and take steps to avoid it. So, being picky is a good thing. You know what you want and what you don’t want, so you should hold out for what you want. Never lower your standards. ~ Brigitte Nicole
I’m better than other people but I’ve took a good loom in the mirror and it’s not about being better than others. It’s about what you want and what you expect people to want from you. ~ Benjamin Huckaby
