Between ego and object, we teeter-totter


In the age of self awareness, products and social media platforms all help us become autobiographers of our own lives. But how objective are we in speaking about our "self"? Do we speak about our selves from memory of fact or from the ego of feeling? What facts do we leave out to save our hide? Are we documenting who we are in the eyes of how the world wants to see us? Are we teeter-tottering between the truth here? At the end of the day, when all the facts of our lives are heaped onto themselves will they stand tall to the test of time of wobble and come crashing down due to their own insincerity?
