Ego Personified!!!

What is Ego?
An inflated feeling of pride in your superiority to others.

Ego and Super-ego are terms that offer a description between the conscious and the unconscious according to Sigmund Freud.

Every one of us have an ego within. How does it work and affect us - is what calls for concern. I think I have an ego that is not too huge but off late people tell me and so have I started to believe that I am Ego Personified! :(

No matter who says a thing that contains a pinch of criticism, I lose it. That's not a good sign at all...for the present I console myself saying that at least after I relax and cool down I think about what the individual has said and try make sense out of it. I most often agree to what has been said specially if it comes from loved ones or very good friends. Is it natural for the ego to get hurt at the first shot? Well, I need to work on it big time. Sooner the better.

Is it true that the Ego is related to a certain complex or lack of confidence from within? I don't see that to be the case with me at least. May be it could be because one is not happy with the way life is going for oneself. I am not getting into the psychology of the EGO.

Phew!!! three posts at one shot....thought I will pen down another but I think I must stop else I burn out!

Ego is fine provided it is to the limit of ur self esteem and self respect. Too much of ego beyond ur self-respect is not a healthy sign. Also trying not to be egoistic eventually losing ur self respect is worst!
