Are You Selfish or Self-Confident?

Therapist and HealthyPlace Blogger Emily Roberts teaches the difference between acting confident and selfish and how adjust your behaviors to improve your relationship with others and your build your self-esteem.

There is a fine line between behaving confidently and selfishly.  Many times people act in a way that they think is showing others that they are confident or have high self-esteem, when they are really exuding a selfish vibe.  This can be detrimental to building and maintaining relationships with others and building self-esteem within one’s self. This vlog clearly explains the difference between being selfish and self-confident and how to adjust your tone and demeanor to appear more confident and compassionate.

Find the Balance Between Self-Confidence and Selfishness

Ask yourself this “Am I acting or treating others the way that I want, or deserve, to be treated?  Am I communicating this to others clearly?” It’s not always ME before WE, learn why.

Take Good Care.

  1. Spot on. I would say that if you’re truly self-confident, you will naturally treat people the right way, asking about them and being interested, because you won’t feel the need to have the spotlight. Great post!
