The Ego is confusing

The Ego is confusing

The Ego is a confusing paradox. Many are in agreement that ego was bad, that it destroyed creativity and happiness, that they knew plenty of toxic egomaniacs who had wrecked themselves. But they still think Ego is important.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

  • Confidence is based on what is real and it's earned. It does not alienate us from others.
  • Ego is based on delusion and wishful thinking. It is artifice and makes us self-centered.

It starts where our notion of ourselves and the world grows so strong that it begins to distort the reality which surrounds us. 

It is a deep and continuous connection to the world around us. The Ego disconnects us from reality, stifling creativity.
