Ego & the Social Human Being

Ego is something bigger than I have ever thought…. I had always thought that people can love each other so deeply that they would give up their self-esteem and dignity under some conditions or in some occasions, at least I myself have always been trying to do so. Therefore, sometimes it hurts me when others cannot do this in return, especially when it comes from my mom or dad. I know love is not asking for return when you give, but sometimes we expect that at least moms and dads will act like real moms and dads.

I can’t believe Sarah’s father said that to his daughter right after the PhD dissertation defense! I kind of understand my mom better now. Everyone is a social human being and we cannot live in a vacuum or refuse to accept the truth that humans can be jealous, even if between and among family members.

I think I should change my world view a little bit because I have always been too serious, too religiously blind to believe in goodness and absolute love. The soul may surpass the flesh to some extent , but not always. I have to admit this fact and move on.
