So, everyone has an ego, no point denying it. I expect that even the Dalai Lama checks his good side now and again when passing a mirror - "still looking good!" Ego's come in all shapes and sizes, that's the nature of things. However, they can easily control our lives, get in the way of running our lives, and particularly in how we treat others, as in the narcissist. So you need to know whether your ego runs as a nippy little scooter, or a sluggish gas guzzling BMW, and maybe do something about it. Never really too late, until it is too late.
