An Elder With An Ego.

May 29, 2023

An adolescent with a pacifier. A young adult clinging to the nest. A mid-lifer with bulging lips and an unbudgeable, Botox-infused forehead. None of these are natural. But such is the way of life when you’re trapped in the ugly clenches of the ego.

And, let’s be honest, we’ve all been there in one shape or another.

Here’s an Urban Dictionary definition for “elder ego:” “When an older person refuses to take advice or listen to a younger individual. And fails because of it."

If we’re fortunate (and wise enough), the ego is something we shed with age or learn to rise above. While we never quite get rid of it, in time, it lessens its grip. Hopefully, it’s something we can eventually laugh at and with. It certainly makes life more enjoyable!

To paraphrase those classic TV commercials for “Leggo my Eggo” waffles, it’s time to Leggo of our Ego!
