What a stupid word, how overused and confusing. I’ve never heard the word used in a positive context – “Oh he’s lovely, you must meet him, he has such a super ego”. I’m not going to even give a dictionary definition – So this is your opinions only. Secretly perhaps I’m longing for some clarification on this farce of a word – I really do hate it actually, a lot.
If someone says “that’s just your ego talking” I will blacklist you … you have been warned …
WTF ? What the hell are these people taking about ?
Do animals have an ego, same as humans ? Why do they need it ?
What the hell do I need an ego for ?
If I have one then surely I need it, otherwise why would god give me something I don’t need ?
Over to you guys, perhaps there’s a scholar/Buddha/enlightened being in our midst who’ll clear this utter mess up. Or perhaps others just have largely omitted it from their vocabulary because “ego” is made up bullshit … I’m open to listen to well reasoned comments in either direction … it’s all the same for me until something resonates with me …
You decide today 🙂
