Are You An Ego-Maniac?

Ego "VS" Self Esteem

Having good self-esteem can be a wonderful thing, but being an egotistical jerk is not. Just because you have a "God" complex about yourself, doesn't mean everyone else is going to revel in the idea of participating in your idol self-worship. Personally, I have better things to do with my time, than to sit around and tell you how awesome, you clearly already think you are.

Being completely sprung on yourself, just makes you look like an egomaniac. So the next time you tell me to look at how big your bicep is while you bounce that over-bloated thing, in front of my face, " I just might bite it." Of course, you being Mr.Ego-Hogan, would probably take that as some form of a compliment.

Ego Management

Believe it or not, there is a cure, for helping even the most self-absorbed person, and here it is, "listen up, this is a crucial step toward changing your life." The magic cure, is called you need to get over yourself, " unfortunately it doesn't come in a pill form yet, so you have to have at least a hint of a personality, for it to work."

I also recommend taking some type of, get over yourself classes, but for you guys who don't quite understand what that means, maybe even follow those classes, with some ego control management." Hopefully, this will help you learn how to love others as much as you do yourself.

Seriously?

Okay all the goofy jumble I just wrote was all very sarcastic satire, but seriously speaking, nobody likes a jerk. People who are egotistical, are very hard to deal with, and I don't have the patience or time to deal with someone who thinks the moon and stars rise, just for them.

Nobody wants to have anything to do with a person who has nothing to talk about but how wonderful, and gorgeous they think are. I mean how would you feel if we were talking, and out of the blue I said, " I am so sexy and hot." You would probably think I was a total self-absorbed idiot.

There is a very big difference between having a good self-esteem, and being egotistical. Having a good self-esteem, is about having confidence in yourself, and being able to accept and love your flaws, embracing everything about who you are, inside and out. Being an ego-maniac, means you don't think you have any flaws, which is just ridiculous. I mean nobody is perfect, end of story.

The best real advice I would give to someone who suffers from what I like to call "The bloated ego syndrome" would be to take their whole " I am a perfect being persona" down a few notches, curing an over hyper ego is that simple.

Thank you for this. I have tried hard not to be an egotist. But no matter how I try to humble myself, people tell me how great I am. I have gone so far as cleaning up the garbage of hundreds for free.
