This was inspired by a conversation I had with [Joicy] over at Twitter.
I think a bit of ego is necessary for the religious. No, I don’t mean the kind of ego that pumps themselves up to show just how religious they are. I don’t mean the kind too, that takes pride in showing off just how charitable they are either. And I definitely don’t mean the kind that’s arrogant.
By ego I mean the self-confidence and assurance in knowing what you’re doing is right. [Joicy] spoke about being proud of what some would call her “saintly” personality- the pious kind. For me, that is ego being healthy, because she knows who she is, and she’s sticking to it.
A healthy ego is one who is secure in whom them are without being overbearing. My ego tends to be more in the unhealthy part- I am overbearing at times. 😛 But that’s just me.
What do you think your ego is?
