I once heard someone state "we lost humility for the sake of self-confidence". It rang true then. Now, I think it's changed to "we lost empathy for the sake of self-confidence". And it's not just the new generation. People of all ages have adjusted to put themselves above everyone else. What we should be doing is putting ourselves EQUAL to everyone else. I am not more important than you - you are not more important than me. Each situation should be looked at individually before deciding who "wins" - and compromise should always be the first consideration.
