What’s An Ego??

Hello Everyone!

I know that I ask ya a million times. How warm was it on your side of the globe today? Are you enjoying your Sunday? We are experienced a heat wave that thankfully appeared to break on Friday. I recently released and shared my latest three podcast episodes that I have up on my Verbally Disastrous YouTube channel and the podcast platform of your choice. I have released the following: Episode #29: Part A-Sunday Funday With Friends And Family, Episode #30: Part B-Sunday Funday With Friends And Family, and Episode #31: Mrs. Canatuna Piggly Dogg Meat Complaint!! I spent the weekend socializing with some friends at an Irish festival, called Gavenstock, up in the Catskills in New York. It was about an hour and a half north of the suburbs of New York City. It is also two and a half hours north of New York City. We had a blast and enjoyed our stay at Murphy’s Law up in Leeds, New York. I am sure we will go again next year. Let me know in the comment section what does the term “ego” mean to you? Here is a question, from Quora, on being asked to “drop your ego”. This is another question that is good to ask. Some people have a positive association with the term while others have a negative association. I started by offering the definition of ego. I then crafted my response around the definition. I believe that it depends on the person and the situation. Many situations can be interpreted differently by different folks. It is really good to have these types of forums so that we may offer guidance to young people. Here is the posed question and my response below.

POSED QUESTION:

“What does it mean when someone says “drop your ego”?”

Syenia Gandrie

MY RESPONSE:

“Well, let’s first look up the definition of the term ego according to http://www.dictionary.com:

ego

[ ee-goh, eg-oh ]

SHOW IPA

See synonyms for: ego / egos on Thesaurus.com – The world’s favorite online thesaurus!

noun, plural e·gos.

the “I” or self of any person; a person as thinking, feeling, and willing, and distinguishing itself from the selves of others and from objects of its thought.

Psychoanalysis. the part of the psychic apparatus that experiences and reacts to the outside world and thus mediates between the primitive drives of the id and the demands of the social and physical environment.

egotism; conceit; self-importance: Her ego becomes more unbearable each day.

self-esteem or self-image; feelings: Your criticism wounded his ego.

(often initial capital letter)Philosophy.

the enduring and conscious element that knows experience.
Scholasticism. the complete person comprising both body and soul.
Ethnology. a person who serves as the central reference point in the study of organizational and kinship relationships.

If a person is asking you to drop your ego, you are being interpreted as having too high of a sense of self-importance. This sense of self-importance is making the other person uncomfortable. I do not know to what degree the other person is feeling uncomfortable. They had the courage to let you know. Telling a person that they have a big ego can start a confrontation. Was it a build-up over time before the reveal or was it just one encounter? Without knowing each personality, I cannot determine if you really have a big ego or the other person is just being dramatic. If you are an ambitious person who loves pursuing goals, anyone who is lazy is going to feel some kind of way. It is natural for a lazy couch potato to accuse an ambitious person of having a big ego. You have to assess whether or not the other person has a valid point or not. They may just be jealous of your world or you may work too hard to let others know about what you have in your world. You need to take an honest assessment of which one applies. If you have been guilty of speaking about your great goals that you have been smashing, you need to read the room of people with whom you are excited to share the accomplishments. If the other person has not much going on, then attempt to dial it back. Use the recent feedback as a temperature gauge to know to dial your conversation back. Just work to be aware of what you say and do moving forward with your relationship with the other person. I wish you much luck with your journey!”

Well, let me know your thoughts about this topic by dropping feedback or just show some support? I am curious as to the interpretation of others on the term ego. I am trying to write this out while resting after a long weekend being up early and out late. I can’t believe that we are in the last month of the summer already. Make every day count and enjoy your free time with our loved ones. Therefore, have a fabulous Sunday evening either solo or with friends and/or family. Try to enjoy what is left of this weekend however you do when your family depends on you. Try to keep cool and safe this upcoming work week people! Peace out, Cub Scout!
