People will make adjustments to how they treat you, based on what you’re willing to tolerate. In some cases, they won’t. Which means they likely don’t care about what you think.
More than anything else though, what determines how people treat you is how you make them feel. Your words, your actions, your physical appearance. It all counts. Even when you’re not trying.
