Ego is not who you really are. Isn’t it just a social mask? Isn’t it what you do thinking about everyone out there who is gonna judge you? Ego is competition which has no end. Ego has no limits and no contentment. You end up comparing your life to someone else’s. Your ego will forget you how fortunate you are.

Don’t you think it is the time to let go of your ego ?

How we can find the ego in real life?

If you are ,

  • more concerned about how other people look at you comparing to others, that is ego.

  • trying to get the others’ attention by talking about your problems and making a scene out of it, there is ego.

  • attempt to make an impression on others through possessions, good looks or status that is ego.

  • compare yourself to others and if you are unhappy about other people’s success you have an ego.

  • blame other people or outside circumstances when something goes wrong, there is ego.

Ego is embedded in almost everyone in today’s’ society in various ways. That is why price tags, power, prestige, status has become more important than humanity.

So it’s high time for all of us to get out from ego traps. Because the world has so many beautiful things to offer.

Let it go.

Our personal ego makes you think that happiness is outside yourself. But the true fact is that happiness is within yourself.


  • contentment is happiness.
  • simplicity is happiness.
  • big heart is happiness.

Understanding this would be the first step if you want to let go of your ego.

You should,

  • need to accept your true self.
  • not live a life which others would recommend.
  • respect your likings and should live finding your own peace.

Because life is not a race or competition.

Focus on self love. Forget the prestige, status and recognition which you are thriving for.

Make yourself happy and make others happy too. Speak kind words and help your friends in need. You will experience how happy you can be with a big heart and not with a big house or an expensive price tag.

Do not let the ego control your life. But let the true happiness control you.
