Like everyone else, I like feeling good about my image but that’s a fickle thing; perhaps I screw up, or someone effectively ridicules me, or I don’t perform to my own expectations.  So rather than self-image, I prefer self-respect.  Regardless of how I see myself, I want to trust in my ability to conquer adversity and solve problems.  This requires constant effort—constant training.  I have to keep producing evidence that I’m being proactive, that I’m thinking clearly, and that I’m not falling prey to fatuous comforts or narrow-minded ideals.
