i still have little bits of ego
when my baby asks me to do reasonable things (like wash out such and such after i use it)
my baby says (would you wash out the such and such after you use it ??)
and those little bits of ego rise up !!
they say (im not wrong !! i didnt fuck up !! this doesnt reflect negatively on me !!)
they want to scream !!
but then the bigger part of me says
yes—i will do that—i will clean to make you happy—i will clean because you asked me to
my ego wants to get in my way
but why let it
why respond with ego in situations like this
there is no attack on my self
no insult here
just a person asking a person to do something
and a person changing their behavior
