Wow a very simple question and yet complicated. That’s right the ego and self respect are the two main behaviors that important to whom who wish to leave peacefully in this world. There are ego and self respect. Ego is how great the individual think he/she is. And the individual always in the middle which is dangerous. Self respect is having an earned positive feeling about oneself. Also the individual thought that how great he/she is.
Sadly, we can simply notice people surrounded us with these behaviors regardless what age. Of course, I will label them as ‘incompetence and low’.
Well, I don’t like to join with these people and the best way is to stay away from them to avoid the conflict. Or just answer the question in very general manner and STAY AWAY from them.
