Feed your soul, not your ego. If you just can’t let it go, try intermittent fasting for that big ego. I acknowledge my foibles and fuck ups, it’s a necessary action for me to keep my head up. The Jheri curl I had in middle school, all the embarrassing typos I make, raising a teenager, and my small place among the bountiful mysteries of the universe, are just a few things that keep me humble. You can’t grow, with a big ego.
