Gaining control of your ego is the best thing that you can do for yourself. If you can't put your ego aside and let it go, you'll continue to have unhealthy relationships with friends, spouse or family members.
We all have an ego. However, we must learn how to control it. If you let your ego go unchecked, it can cause tremendous fuss in your life particularly with your partner or spouse.
Ego and pride are so similar. It can be difficult to figure out the difference but this is it: ego is selfish and always has no fact while pride is less selfish and mostly based on the facts of a person's achievements or qualities.
Ego is easily bruised while pride is harder to shake, pride may be focused on others instead of being self obsessed like ego.
It's important to note that ego isn't all bad. Ego is simply how a person views himself. If a person's ego has a firm basis in reality and he does not allow it to control his life, it can actually be good for their self esteem
On this note, I repeat too much of anything is a No No No for me. The question now is are you egoistic or just full of pride? Is there really any difference between ego and pride?
