Read it until you get it.
Releasing yourself from the hold of your ego is so important to live a whole life without limits. When you give your ego power, you’re getting in the way of your happiness. Your ego says “your hair looks like shit today because it doesn’t look as good as —‘s hair”... and then you feel like shit. Your ego says “they don’t like me because I’m just not good enough or pretty enough”... and then you feel sad.
If you can minimize your ego, make it smaller, and just look at each event that happens to you as a stepping stone to something better — happiness starts to trickle in.
It’s important to note that ego is not entirely responsible for negative emotions, but when feelings of sadness, fear, guilt, anger, and envy pop up, it seems to usually have an ego-related tie. - 6 minutes ago
