I found you're post to be very egotistical
How anyone could possibly come to that conclusion is beyond me. Sounds like your sense of self is feeling threatened by the fact that someone else
knows something that you don't, making you feel pretty stupid.
It's ok, it happens to the best of us.
There are going to be others in life who will know more than you,be more than you, be better looking than you, be better at something you have
practiced so hard all your life at, be smarter than you, and be more successful than you. What really sucks is when they KNOW it too.
Remember, it isn't bragging if it's true.
Actually, tht isn't necessarily true either.
It isn't bragging as long as your ego isn't being fed in the process of revealing your triumphs.
If it is just a matter of fact then who am I to say whether or not it is egotistical?
Who are you?
Occasionally you will come into contact with one of these people.
If being in their presence makes you feel threatened then you are going to have a rough way to go.
My hunch is that there are ALOT of them out there in your life.
Only a person with an overflated ego could convince themselves they have found true wisdom.
Who said anything about finding true wisdom?
The only thing I read was someone who has learned the first step to wisdom.
Following your line of thinking, looking up your vacation destination on mapquest and pulling out of the driveway, is the same as arriving there. Your
family must be so confused.
Wisdom is something you figure out on your own, usually after you've lived a few years.
I take it you know the OP personally since I never saw ANY indication as to how old the op is.
He could very well be 100 years old as far as I can tell.
Again, you come across VERY defensive and full of irrational projections which seem to be based on your own insecurities rather than facts.
This isn't some hidden secret you've stumbled upon and has absolutely nothing to do with ego.
ugggh, this is getting tiring.
AGAIN, who said anything about 'hidden secrets'?
This again is something you have pulled out of thin air as a way to discredit the OP which has absolutely NO basis in fact or reality. No one said
ANYTHING about "hidden secrets" but you inject it into the discourse so you can belittle the op because of the way he/she has made you feel (ego)
because of their thread.
Thanks for the advice but I will pass on using it, or any other ideas from that philosophy.
It wasn't meant for you anyway, this isn't something you are going to be ready for, for quite some time if I had to venture a guess.
