Took me a long time to figure out what this ego thing was all my teachers were talking about. I then figured out that our ego is the human part of us that longs for things and stuff. It’s that competitive part of us that feels jealousy and wants to be the best. The ego is that aching stomach dropping cringe when you think you can’t find your cell phone. Our egos make us feel like we need this and that in order to be happy and to find peace. Just like anything else the power to be happy and at peace comes from within and knowing we have control of that is a comforting thought.
