I like my ego, now; reshaped into a small compact, use it if you need it package. It doesn't bulge out, uncontrolled into areas that don't concern it. It seems as though, as I've become a bigger person, my ego has (thankfully) diminished. I don't need to set things right. I don't need to stand up for my honor-so often. I don't need to react immediately-ever. I can shape my thoughts to minimize impact, to examine instead of react. I feel a comfort in my skin that wasn't there before. Painful journeys build character and help one evolve.
