Someone egotistical and very insecureWhen you’re dealing with an egotistical person, you’re dealing with a man-child or a woman-child.

You’re dealing with somebody who literally has not grown up at all. Think about it. Do you remember when you were growing up and you had that friend?

The one that always bragged about the stuff they got. Their ball was way better then your ball.

Their stereo was better then yours.

Their car was better then yours. They were stronger then you were. They always made sure that you knew all these things. Well, guess what happens? That man-child or woman-child went on to become an adult. Not an emotionally formed adult, but a child adult.

So you’re dealing with somebody who’s got a huge ego. They want to be patted on the back consistently. They constantly need validation that they’re the best.

Deep down, they’re very insecure. You see, insecurity and ego are cousins, maybe brothers and sisters. Somebody with a huge ego tends to be very insecure that they’re going to be found out about, and the real version of them is actually going to show up.

So how do you deal with somebody like that? Because dealing with them like that is not fun at all.

First off, you try not to have people like that in your life. You actually ask yourself why you have somebody like that in your life at all. There’s no reason to at all. There’s no reason to be friends with somebody like that, because you’re not getting anything added at all. It’s going to be their ego, their way, you’re going to have to listen to their stuff, and they’re just not going to ever really hear you, or really be the friend that you need, friend that you want, the friend that you desire.

So, if you’re dealing with somebody like that in the business world, you always have to agree with them, build them up, gather information about them, and then speak to the somewhat rational mind that still might be in there. Chances are, you may not be able to.

So once again, why are you choosing to deal with this person? If this person is your boss, then why are you staying in this job? If this person works for you, why would you have this person work for you? There are so many people in this world that we don’t need to waste time and energy and effort on people that don’t deserve our time, energy, and effort. Because it’s what causes stress. Your stress level goes through the roof when you have somebody like this.

If you’re dealing with their insecurities, they need to feel good about themselves 24/7. So ask yourself why do you have this person in your life. That’s the main thing.
