How could you not struggle if you still take (some) things personally?
How could you think that you don’t take things personally when you say/think: ’I’ (!) don’t take things personally?
How could you not be a (reactive) bitch to others when you are still a little bitch to your own ego?
How could you think that you are not a little needy bitch to your ego if you (!) are still trying to please it by trying to ’transcend’ it?
