"To have ego means to believe in your own strength. And to also be open to other people's views. It is to be open, not closed. So, yes, my ego is big, but it's also very small in some areas. My ego is responsible for my doing what I do - bad or good."
Now that's better. "Hey Ego, here's a little respect for you. Thanks for pushing me out of my shell and helping me make my way in the world. I like you. You know if you screw up I'll forgive you. That's what friends do."
So make friends with your ego today.
