Ego or Self-Respect

“When do you know it is ego and when it is self-respect?” asked a friend.

“When you don’t regret it later, it is self-respect. Otherwise, ego,” replied I.

“Great one! I will think over this,” she said.

While the advice-seeker appreciated the eloquence of the advice, little did she know that it stemmed from the advice-giver’s own regrets.
