Catch 22

You could hang yourself on Jesus' parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector.  As soon as you say, "I'm not like that Pharisee," you are like that Pharisee, judging yourself better than he.  It's more helpful to look deep in our own hearts and see how easy it is to slide from appreciating God's gifts to feeling vain about how wonderful we are.
