Describe what it might mean to hold oneself in “proper” self-regard and also to “get over oneself”?

Vernon summarizes Aristotle’s paradoxical description of soul friendship as the following:

Close friendship requires an individual to possess a greater range of qualities than just a fulsome capacity for reciprocal goodwill. It requires a proper sort of self-regard—the kind that allows the individual to get over themselves; and a wider love of life itself—so that the individual is capable of pursuing interests that are not their own (p. 252).

Describe what it might mean to hold oneself in “proper” self-regard and also to “get over oneself”? How is it possible to inhabit these seemingly contradictory roles? What are some examples you can share from your own life?
Why might it be important to have a “wider love of life itself’” in order to experience a true and meaningful friendship?
