Self-importance is egotism, conceit, and arrogance and it is harmful to yourself and others. It is damning pride that will feed others' hatred and
your own vanity. It will cloud your judgement and do harm your to mind, body, and soul.
You ARE important, but you are no more important than anyone else.
add to clarify ego:
The ego is the most influential part of the psyche. It is the psyche's mood, it is what makes you you, it is your personality, and it is the reason
you see yourself as an individual - but ego is not egotism.
Think of ego as your psyche on drugs. Those drugs are the chemical reactions, that occur in the brain, based on what your psyche's conscience thinks
of, or has thought of, its thoughts.
Trying to stop the ego is harmful to the psyche. Even focusing too much on the ego is harmful. When you focus too much on the morality of your
thoughts, you will be in endangering your psyche.
