Ego versus Self Respect



A man's pride shall bring him low,
but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.
- Proverbs 29:23

The ego lives by comparisons...
The ego cannot survive without judgment.
- A Course in Miracles

You never really learn much from hearing yourself speak.
- George Clooney

We take refuge in pride because we are afraid to tell the truth to ourselves.
- Kakuzo Okakura

Self-respect is often mistaken for arrogance
when in reality it is the opposite.
When we can recognize all our good qualities
as well as or faults with neutrality,
we can start to appreciate ourselves
as we would a dear friend
and experience the comfortable inner glow of respect.
To embrace the journey towards our full potential
we need to become our own loving teacher and coach.
Spurring ourselves on to become better human beings,
we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.
- Osho
