Chapter 20

* * * * * * * * * *

I just had a minor conflict with a colleague. I described a funny situation that he was involved in, taking care that absolutely nobody could connect him with the story. It was just a funny story.

He was pissed. Even though nobody could possibly connect him with the story, his ego was bruised. And he confronted me.

Well, let me say this about that:

People with sensitive egoes live unhappy lives. If you have a sensitive ego, it would only improve your life if you strengthened it up a little. In fact, it would greatly improve your life.

In the second place, the combination of a sensitive ego and an aggressive personality is a ticket to a jail cell. Think about it. People like that not only have the tendency to anger quickly, but to act on it. That could end badly.
