Is your EGO the problem?

what is ego. i think it is your "identity" who you think you are. The word "I" brings in problems into almost every person`s life maybe with your mother/father/friends/partner/office colleges etc. It is an inaccurate self-image of ourselves that we build in our mind. I personally have faced some problems because of my ego that keeps me a little distant from the people i love or care about or even with the people i meet for the first time. I know i need to work on it. Do you face any such problems?

I focus on what I can do for others. I am not 'sufficiently mobile' (i.e. no car--which means I can go hardly anywhere in Oklahoma City--and no money for fuel to use it even if I had one!), so 'what I can do for others' is limited to 'what I can do in my neighborhood' (hardly knowing any of my neighbors, living as I do in kind of a 'stopping place'---where people only go out when their headed out of the neighborhood). That's why I like the Internet (and why I HATE the Internet): it makes the world 'my neighborhood,' but--everywhere it takes me--the only thing I'm an expert on is "me"
