A friend asked why I don’t write more often.
I told her it’s my minimalism, not wanting to put anything into the world unless necessary. And because of the size of my mailing list, I don’t want to bother people unless it’s really important.
She said, “Or maybe it’s ego.”
Ouch. She was right. Very right.
I re-read my notes on the book “Ego is the Enemy”.
“Ego is the unhealthy belief in our own importance.”
I feared releasing something unimportant, so I didn’t release anything at all.
If you would have asked me if I think I’m so important, I would have said no. But actions, not words, reveal our real values.
So, sorry that I’ve been so silent. I let my ego make excuses, then believed them.
Read the book “Ego is the Enemy” if this sounds like you, too.
