Ego

You know the saying ”the world does not revolve around you?” Well some women would disagree; at least their ego’s would because in their heads it does. And the best way to see this is to look at her behavior when she receives the attention she’s looking for and when she doesn’t.

Be honest, you’re not really putting your volunteer work on social media to show people that you care, you’re putting it up there so people can comment and talk about how wonderful you are for spending two hours picking up trash while you were probably miserable the whole time.

“When I got Ego Is the Enemy tattooed on my forearm it is exactly this part of human nature that I wanted to warn myself against on a daily basis. It is this part of us that says that we know better, that makes us unwilling to listen to others, to remember to be objective and clear-headed and honest.”
