How often do we get confused by the traps of ego and self-respect? Let’s do a quick analysis of what separates the two and save us from trouble of confusing one with the other.
Being self-assured and confident is having self-respect. Your own value of yourself, your worth is self-respect. It is a strength of character. Moving away from people that don’t value you is a prime example of knowing your worth AKA self-respect.
While in a striking contrast, ego is linked with insecurity and fear. It is a weakness of character. Ego is negative self-obsession, leading us to arguments and anger whereas self-respect leads us to stability and peace. I hope it smooths out the edges. Good day!
