Ego: Write it! Write about the pain-worshippers!
Self: Cause if I do, then I would just be being righteous.
Ego: But being right is everything. EVERYTHING!
Self: No. I don't want to live my life consumed about being right.
Ego: But being right feels good.
Self: No. Being right only leaves more space, a void that needs to be filled with more feelings of righteousness. When am I ever going to finish my work or achieve anything, or more importantly, enjoy anything, if I am on a constant crusade to be better than everyone?
Ego: Well, are you doing your work now?
Self: Good point. Goodbye. You won't be getting any sustenance tonight.
