Ego Monster: The Big Head by Shana Jay

Ego: An exaggerated sense of self-importance; conceit
Sorry that I have been incognito for a minute leaving you (my readers) without some deep nourishing thought to saturate your mental. I have been in my bat cave thinking of a master plan and while I was there I ran into several topics that I want to touch on. Today it will be the word “Ego.” I happen to run into a friend of mine who told me about an encounter with another fellow author who is simply on an ego trip. First and foremost just because you write a book doesn’t mean that you take the book fame and try to manipulate the situation to screw.
I do understand there are book groupies out here lurking in search of a meal ticket but no one should use their status for sex I’m just saying. Another problem that I had was the fact that this person made the statement “What?! You don’t know who I am? Google Me.” Really?! Google you and then what? If you were so well known then you wouldn’t have to ask a person to Google you in the first place. Seriously, it’s ok to have confidence I have plenty but you wont catch me telling someone to “Google Me” if anything I  would use this as an opportunity to offer that person a bookmark or visit my website that’s how you build your brand. 
In conclusion, I’m so sick of insecure people hiding behind large egos.  Further more an anonymous author wrote “There is life beyond ego.” The Bible states “Thinking themselves to be wise, they became fools” and in this situation this author clearly made this statement true. At the end of the day “Ego” is a fool, pretending to be ever so wise and haughty and puffed up and is truly nothing.
