{{This is why I drink until I collapse Nod drunken Well, its that or actually dealing with things!!

But does make it a very unreliable adviser and guide- best to ignore it most of the time I find)}}}

The world needs cynical people. Someone needs the responsibility of being grounded while everyone else is floating away.

It doesn't sound like you're using ego in the Freudian sense but I'm not sure if you're using the colloquial definition to say that I need to keep an inflated sense of self-importance in check (and I mean, if that's how I come across, I'd rather know for sure so I can reflect on that) or if you're using a meaning that I'm not familiar with.

Sorry if I'm being dense.

to say that I need to keep an inflated sense of self-importance in check- Eldo

{{Ha, no, not at all in that sense. More a case of the voice we all have in our head can be a treacherous one, it likes to wallow in self pity and negative thoughts about itself as that keeps the focus on itself. And that's true for everyone to a lesser or greater extent. And it tends to be loudest and hardest to ignore late at night, in the dark or on your own and especially all three.
Crowley believed that inner voice was the main cause of human misery he recommended as an experiment nipping yourself every time you have a thought containing anything self referential "I' "Me'" "mine" ect just to demonstrate how often that voice needs to reaffirm itself. Done it myself many moons ago was shocking how often the inner voice talks about itself! Meditation is a means to shut it up of course but its worth just paying attention to, as normally we just let it ramble on to itself without really considering what we are repeating over and over to ourselves all the time and is it really healthy.}}}

Freud's ego is not the modern ego. Sense of self versus inflated sense of self.

Thanks for explaining, Petty. I'm not familiar with much about Crowley's way of thinking so I'd have to read up on the subject to have an opinion.

halfwise wrote:Freud's ego is not the modern ego.  Sense of self versus inflated sense of self.

I know, which is why I distinguished between the Freudian definition and the colloquial definition in my previous post.

Difficulty establishing a sense of self that is not dependent on other people's approval (and just generally seeing oneself as one's own separate, autonomous person) is a fairly developed subject of mental health research and practice but I dunno if anyone here takes that kind of thing seriously.

Update on the gf situation, yesterday was the 6 month anniversary since our first date Shocked and things couldn't be going better Very Happy I love you we are deeply in love, have yet to have a single major argument, and share such similar outlooks, interests and humour it feels like we are two halves of the same person (something her parents have commented on as well Laughing ), I swear with each passing day our relationship and trust in each other grows, I've met her parents, siblings and other members of her extended family multiple times and they all like and accept me for who I am, her mum has commented how happy we seem together and thanked me for making her daughter so happy Embarassed

I love you I love you I love you cheers Kissing Kissing Kissing

Well despite our best efforts your relationship has proved to have all the staying power of Trump, and I hope it's at least as entertaining for you.

(Since neither Petty nor Az could manage to fill the role I've tried to come up with something suitably cynical and that's the best I could do.)

I sharnt rain on anybody's parade when you can definitely feel the vibes that Malick has struck gold Smile To be honest there is fuck all in this world that can lift you up or tear you down more than "love". Its too powerful & dynamic. So, if it feels good & your happy as a pig in shit & you welcome every day with a smile instead of tea & a roll up then, Im happy for you !! Very Happy
I shall go off & have a tantrum, kick doors, throw a few chairs & mutter some incantation, sulk, swear, eyeball the cat, harness the dogs & go for a walk.....

I mean I am very happy and very much in love...but I do still greet each new day with a cup of tea (or several) averaging about 10 a day at the moment...is that a bad thing?
