I apologise for fooling you with a titillating title (or turning you off for that matter). This is a very cheap technique of SEOing, and an effective one too.
If you have this far (which admittedly is not much, you might as well venture forth a few more lines)
The ego exists to lie to you and protect you from the harsh realities until you are ready to face them. Some egos are too protective-and people never encounter truth all their lives.
My ego is an aberration because it rarely does me any favours.
As a teenage boy, with a face only a mother could love, I would often gaze into the mirror for unknown lengths of time,as all angsty teenagers do.
But even in front of the mirror, the thoughts that swirled in my mind were not about me.
I would often stand naked, jiggle my body, and sigh.
I had a neanderthal face, a simian body-and was on the path to great hirsuteness.
I would wonder what kind of girl would love me.
With what I saw in the mirror, I didn’t have high hopes.
I would run wild with a highly distorted and biased mind experiment- A scenario- played ad infinitum-to torture myself.
If I were a girl, would I ever fall in love with a boy like me?
The answer, as always, was a resounding – Hell No!
I would then self-deprecatingly add a footnote to my thoughts that If I were somehow a girl, I probably would have been a lesbian.
