Whether we’re aware if it or not, our egos employ strategies designed to make us feel smarter, more clever or in some way better than others. We know we’re being driven by our ego when we find ourselves teasing, judging, gossiping or thinking about the inferior aspects of others and our own superior traits. Tactics used by our egos feel good superficially and temporarily, but ultimately don’t help us develop healthy self-esteem and they definitely don’t help others feel good about us. Recognizing and stopping ourselves when we unconsciously use these strategies is the best way to develop…

Authentic self-worth.
