Self-respect is personal focus. What do you stand for, what is your value, what good do you do for others? Remind yourself of your contributions regularly to rebuild your self-respect. As to your partner, that is her choice. You can't make her respect you again. Hopefully, she too will see your good side at some point but she has to want to make the shift.
