I love this!
A competition of who has the smallest ego... just brilliant!
I'm all fear/ego, I've never denied it, and I know I have a lot of growth in front of me. I'm sad because Claudio can not even say he has ego issues, all he can do is try to be macho. I have ego issues. I've never competed with anybody about it, and I've never claimed to be better than anybody, never would. I do know when I am being talked down to, and I do know when it matters and when it doesn't. I gave Claudio a chance to say, yes, this involves my ego too, but he cannot even do that, I am sad, but I give up. I don't need this, I already know I don't like people blinded like that (that I would prefer people not to ignore the obvious in their behaviors), at a point though one must consider the reality that my children are who get my energy on learning to communicate to help each other grow. Even my children understand growth goes two ways. I have changed since I came here, I communicate with EVERYONE except Claudio better than I used to. That is my experience, that is what I know. Claudio can measure his own change because I don't see it (and it's really none of my business if Claudio needs to take a bath to clean his entropy, whatever that is suppose to mean, he knows as it is his term). I'm just here just like all of us, in this kindergarten that I can admit to being in. See, my ego is there, but I see it, that is the difference, but it is all the same all the time in Claudioland. If You are in some other grade than kindergarten Claudio, let us in on it, what's it like?
I have done nothing but not allow myself to be belittled, if one has to be belittleable to have a smaller ego I'll stick with where I am for now. I have several ideas, some of them good, and I will not be stifled. Been there, done that, and all I got were boundary issues.
Anyone loving this, well, I don't know....
