Consumerism And Self Worth: Part Three

February 02, 2010

As humans, being told we have fallen for a trap does not sit well with us. We don’t like feeling duped and for good reason! Any perceived attack to the ego often gets automatically rejected and labeled as irrelevant regardless of how applicable it may be to our self awareness and growth.

Rather than responding defensively, I instead ask that we review the pertinent information with an open mind and cast the ego aside.

Only by looking at how we have fallen for consumer trickery and contributed further to the problem in the past can we truly become aware and consciously choose what we consume in the future.
