(since everyone calls) and what helps me is asking myself: Do I have the best hand, and will betting/raising increase my chances of keeping the best hand.
Most of the time I do bet and raise now when I am sure I am ahead and more betting will be profitable, simply because I will be upset at myself for not taking advantage of these spots.
When you play higher stakes you have to consider if your range is ahead of your opponent and how they will likely react to aggression, so it can get fairly complicated (as with everything!).
Good luck at the tables!
