Developing an unshakable self-concept

I agree with Sartre that it is virtually impossible to completely maintain one’s preconceived and habituated self-concept –  no matter how intensely believed – in the face of others’ judgements. However, we can develop a tough shell that can protect us from all but the most vicious attacks, and a bright spark to guide and enliven our path forward.

To develop a self-concept that will lead to our flourishing  we need to, first and foremost, examine who influences us and what effect they have on our self-concept, positive or negative.
