It’s when we think we have something to prove that we do irrational things.

We let our ego get in the way of our path.

We let it control us and make us do things we shouldn’t do.

We let it cloud our judgment.

We act like we have something to prove when we should live our lives on our own terms.

If other people’s judgment doesn’t matter, we would be happier human beings.

“Look at me, I‘m better than you.”

“Hey, I make more money than you.”

When we try to live up to other people’s expectations, we don’t live up to our own.

We are lost.
