Your ego hasn't become as healthy as it is right now due to compliments and flattery alone -- it took lots of hard work and risk-taking! Your growing self-worth has come from deep within you, so don't be so quick to attribute it to other people. Wield your self-esteem without hesitation, especially if someone tries to knock you down a peg or two today. As long as you are respectful of other people, you are well within your rights to defend your position.
