K is for Kill … (#A-Z Challenge)

…the EGOk

She is my best friend for 17 years. We have been through our thick and thin. We knew each other’s pulse. People thought we were sisters. We started our careers with the same organization. When in college, during exams I slept throughout the day while she read and made notes, photo copied and gave them to me to study. All her hard work paid off when I got more marks and she never felt bad or stop giving me her notes. We never forget those chitchatting during our sleepovers. I joined a course just to accompany her to the class. We did well in our careers, settled and there came a time we had a misunderstanding. We were just quiet. No confrontations. No arguments. It’s just our EGO that refrained us from speaking to each other, saying sorry or at least asking why?  Many a times, I typed a message to reconcile and then deleted. I was missing her badly and I know she was missing me too. Our common friends knew it and they made sure to pass on all our important news to each of us so that we know what’s happening in our lives.

Few days back, my husband made an effort to bring us back together and it worked (a million thanks to my dear husband). He knows how much was I missing her. Every special moment was not so special because she was not there. On a special occasion there was no day that ended me saying ” If R was there…”

When we met last time there was no sorry, no tears we were so happy to see each other. We spoke for hours as we never were apart. That’s when I realized that we both killed our ego. This time, I sent a message how happy I felt her coming home and how much I missed her.

She is coming home this weekend to sleep over. I am very happy and excited. This time we might not get time to gossip as my daughter for sure will keep her busy and make her tired.

If we had killed the ego right after our misunderstanding, we would have cherished many more beautiful moments together. But still I believe it”s better late than never.

Ego is something that holds you back from saying things in your heart is dying to say like I love you, I miss you and I am sorry.  Kill the ego before it kills you. Life is too short to have complaints.

Kick the E, GO and say sorry, I love you , I miss you or anything that makes you free from the heavy heart. Now.

    Ego is a necessity to drive us forward, but it can also be the biggest flaw that holds us back.
