Having standards doesn't make us "better," but it does give us a certain dignity. When we approach relationships with a high level of care and concern for the well-being of others, we expect considerate treatment in return. For whatever reason, not everyone is capable of this. That is okay. These differences are a part of the great mystery of life.
We must evaluate what we are willing to accept within our inner circle and make sure we leave space for the ones whose hearts beat like ours.
