Tolerance of my Ego
My identity is important to me. I generally find it difficult to let-go of a self-image of myself.
I’ve seen people, like JC and Abhisekh for example – who have the ability to win the crowd almost like magic. To an untrained eye, it might be magic but for an observant communicator there is more to it – The ability to let-go of ego.
I use Orkut. Every other day I see people playing with their display names and treating their identity like post-it! I don’t really like it. Today after reading about Michael Jackson, I felt like giving him a personal tribute. I changed my display pic and Orkut status msg and dedicated it to him.
How does it feel? Not having your Identity?
I was disobeying my own principles! And mind you, I detest hypocrites! It took some time for the feeling to sink in … Not having an identity for a day. People reading my scraps would be confused! When they visit my profile they might get annoyed not being able to figure out who it was!
There was turbulence, but a mild one. I’ve recently had an attitude shift. Thanks to the great examples I see around me – both fictional and real, I take it up as a task for personal-development. An exercise, to sober down… 🙂
PS: Tolerance, I will win you…
