The ego can literally drive you to your death. Destroy you with addiction and with heartbreak. Take care that this doesn’t happen to you.
For so many people Ego, is a scary word, a negative word, for some it is inspiring. The truth is it can be both. The ego when used properly can inspire you to do great things, to want to feel good, to want to achieve, to want to experience. The Ego, is part of the great things about who you are, that can catapult you into great and unchartered territories.
The problem Ego, the Ugly Ego, is the one that makes us respond to things, and do things that we may have wished we didn’t. The Ugly Ego is full of self protection, self motivation, self initiation, and self recognition. The ugly ego gets down to the core of our being by making us think that things are about us when they are not. Makes us react to others in rude and hurtful ways. “All communication is either a sharing of love, or a crying out in pain.” Tony Robbins
The Ugly Ego, may dig at you so much and so often, that it drives you to addiction to hurting yourself, and to self denial of joy.
