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.

Then the child-ego is in charge. Tell her you’ll take care of everything, and mean it. Tell her to go take a nap. Bring out your inner grown-up and take charge.
You’ll find, as I have, that life gets much easier.
