Where do you draw the line between self-assurance and arrogance?
At the head of a procession as he entered Rome in triumph, Caesar had a slave behind him holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning: "All glory is fleeting"
Self-esteem grow as we become confident in our abilities. Nothing wrong with that. Yet at times we are guilty of the sin of pride, our sense of self worth and superiority riding roughshod over others.
Perhaps in silence , when we first open our mouths is where the line begins to form and the direction of the line begins traveling ......self assurance becomes arrogance in the more that we say ? Hi SilentReed........:-}
All one can do is be his or herself. It is the outside world that will weigh in on whether one is being arrogant or self-assured. My guess is there will be many who see it either way. Muhammad Ali is one person that comes to mind for me. He was both admired and hated for being "cocky", "arrogant" and professing to be "The Greatest".
No matter who you are, what you do, or what you say, there will always be those who will not like you. If for nothing else the story of the life of Jesus teaches us that. No one gets 100% approval ratings. Be yourself, love yourself, and trust yourself. Life is a personal journey.
