I'm not native and I listened this statement in a film, in a contention between lovers:

A: "... Get over yourself"

B: "... I'm so over myself"

Based on the context the meaning should be obvious but I'm a little confused about it.

It would seem "being over oneself" means no longer being enamored by one's own abilities, looks or perceived value.

The speaker has probably gone through recent happenings that help him/her have a more objective appraisal of themselves and their immediate environment.


"I'm (so) over {somebody}" is usually used to mean "I used to be in love with {that somebody} but I'm not anymore", while "get over yourself" accuses the addressee of self-centeredness to the point of self-infatuation.

I'm guessing the two are juxtaposed here for comic effect, but context and visual cues would help us figure out what the second speaker meant.


"Get over yourself"... is a away of saying come down, you aint that great.

"I'm so over myself"... is a form of self loathing, a moment in which someone is tired of how they deal with things, that all there decisions seem to always point in the wrong direction.
