I'll be the first to admit it...

i have an ego problem.  It drives me crazy.  It creates problems in my life almost constantly, but i cant seem to just "grow up" and let it go away.

Like, i have to let people know that im knowledgable in certain subjects, maybe to alleviate long-standing issues of feeling stupid (i wasnt the best student most of my life, nor was i very quick in social situations).

Whatever the reasons, i hate it with a passion...its the one part about me that i cant stand.

Certain friends of mine (geo) suggest psychadellics to alleviate the problem...but i dont mix well with those..ive got alot of monsters in my closet, so to speak :smile:.

They say that the thing you hate most in other people is the thing you hate most about yourself....egos line up perfectly for me there.

I dunno, im just ranting cuz its bothering me right now.


"Human suffering has been caused because all too many of us cannot grasp that words are only tools for our use, and that the mere presence of a word in the dictionary does not mean it necessarily refers to something definitive in the real world"
--Richard Dawkins, "The Selfish Gene"

"It is the mind which creates the world about us, and even though we stand side by side in the same meadow, my eyes will never see what is beheld by yours."
-George Gissing

"Without a firm idea of himself and the purpose of his life, man cannot live, and would sooner destroy himself than remain on earth, even if he was surrounded by bread."
--Fyodor Dostoevsky

Lemme tell you something meow....If you recognize you got an ego problem that's most of the battle right there. If you just walk around spewing trivia like the mailman in cheers, people don't respect that. If you can apply what you know to life situations, that's something good. More importantly though don't look down on what other people don't know cause they're probably holding back in some other area and if there's one thing I've learned in my life so far it's that smart people are stupider than they look and stupid people are smarter than they look.

youi was a pig informatnt so you can go fuckyoruselfs

the ego is what makes you human, and make syou yourself.

shape it, dont fight it.

Really now, does it matter what people respect or not respect (what do you have to prove to them)? Perhaps the choice is to be selective in whos respect you want. Hackneyed, yet not always abided by: BE YOURSELF.
