A Few Kind Words About the Ego

There are some big, bad egos out there, mostly belonging to various world leaders, it would seem. Warmongers. Planet-rapers. Ruthless exploiters. Bad egos for sure, run amok.

Slighted.
Invisible.
Unimportant.
Confused.
Tired.
Discouraged.
Afraid…

You’ll find, as I have, that life gets much easier.
