Finding the right place within oneself can be more difficult than it seems. Most time people claim to know themselves. But have you really thought about knowing the "me" or "you" in myself or yourself?
Recognizing "me" in myself is knowing what I am capable of (positive or negative)even under pressure. Simply saying, doing the right thing despite what the world thinks.
Knowing Myself, which is the common language is easy because one most times may want to adjust for the pressure at hand in order to please the lot .
Placing "me above self" simply is being you, and never changing for anyone or the world.
Compromise, to accommodate necessities can be fair, but not outright change to please or suit anybody's situation.
