Question
How does one work on developing self confidence/self esteem without developing a big ego? What is the essential difference between them and how can one go about developing a healthy self image in a humble way?
Answer
A big ego is the result of falling prey to an overactive imagination. Try to have a realistic picture of yourself- your shortcomings and your strengths (based on Musar Avicha).
