Do you call it ego or a necessary self attitude?
Is being egoistic a necessity sometimes? Is there any level at which we can say that our ego has been hurt? Should we control our emotions at the cost of hurting our ego? Let us discuss.
We say that we should not be an egoist. Ego defines the real attitude problem. But, is it also necessary that we should have it at a minimum level? It is needed so that we can bear other people's useless attitude. Is it so? Sometimes we are not able to display our anger on an argument because there is some goodness in us which lets the other person who is showing that nonsense attitude to understand the truth and as a result, we do not say anything wrong. We do not want to complicate any situation but it automatically gets complicated when a conflict happens. And as a result, the other person hurts your ego badly.
The question that's troubling my mind is at what level we can count that it is hurting your ego? What is actually that level?
