If you mean I want to like what I see in the mirror when I brush my teeth in the morning, then yes, it's ego-dependant.

non sequitur

I think the difference is that "self-righteous" is often unsupported by general social principles, while "righteous" is generally in agreement with some substantial portion of society. I'm not saying that "self-righteous" people are wrong (one self-righteous" person may indeed be correct), but the difference seems to be based on the "self" part. Society as a whole does not really like independent-thinking.
Two paths diverged in the woods, and I managed to take both...

On the other hand, being called "self-righteous" is also someone telling you what they think you are feeling about something -- as opposed to how they think you should feel.

Non sequitur. What if the tones got heated from false accusations? I get heated when falsely accused. Does that mean I'm guilty as charged? Does that mean I'm self-righteous? Or does that mean I'm pissed off by being falsely-accused, and swinging back?

Said someone, "Glad you can tell what others are feeling."

We may never know if the accusations were false, the conversation was not provided. That's why I included 'probably'.

I previously indicated that I was being self righteous, but I'm not getting bent out of shape.

So you admit getting self-righteous even as you acknowledge not knowing the context of the other's conversation, and still happy to call him self-righteous all the same. Got it.

Yep. I think this thread was/is an attempt at manipulation from the beginning. Dex starts out with 'whats the difference...', a simple google search question. He wanted validation that he was not self righteous in his other conversation, note that he only provided his side. Then got pissed off when he didn't get the response he wanted, another self righteous tell.

You can think what you want. I wasn't going to fall for the game he attempted.

Ouch. I'm going to start a thread because my feelings got hurt. Then I'll be vindicated.

Meh, he's just deflecting from his own responsibility to the environment by claiming your motives are impure and self-serving. One gets that a lot. Same thing tends to happen with any sort of self discipline or principled decisions.
