Ego Jail



Some people are captured in their ego jail.

They have created their "full of air balloon image",surrounded it with walls, and as result, cannot be bailed.


They are floating in their own self-made prison.

Some hold on to their diplomas… that prevent them from interacting and learning from “ the simple”.

Other keep themselves away from “the regular”, because of their money, or a beauty dimple.

Yet, other are politicians  that only in election year remember to bla bla key words such as equality and “I focus on you people”


I feel for these ego jailed  wo/men.

What a pity. What a shame.


By the end of the day I perceive them being lonely in their bubble trip.

They could of helped humanity take a step forward, but they in their self illusion, slipped.

    Thanks for the warning AVI ~ I'm too much of a People's Person to ever be trapped in an EGO BUBBLE ~ Working in a College wit students mainly 16 ~ 25 keeps me gregarious. I have noticed that many Men (60+) especially when they retire ~ do go into an ego shell and become very "self centred" So it is something I will have to watch for in 2047 ! Happy Hugs ~ BRIAN @@@

      dear Brian unfortunately, its not necessarily connected to age... it has to do with personality and the feedback resonance we get from interacting with people from all walks of life... Happy Hugs Brain
