If I had to count how many times I've been told that I have a huge ego, I would be a millionaire by now. I used to not care, but now I'm starting to see how a massive ego can be an issue and cause problems in my future as well. I suppose a lot of people also don't really like people who have egos out of this planet. So, how do I lower it? What are the secret ways to do that? Is it even possible? Help a sister out please. :D

You can like and love yourself without having the attitude that you are better than everybody else.
Having a huge ego can also be a hidden low self esteem. Like you constantly need to reassure and prove to yourself (and others) that you are better than everybody else. Realize that it doesn't really matter if you are better or worse, it's all just perception.
A huge ego can also come from self entitlement which can be benefited from having contact with other people less fortunate than you.
Being humble can be hard. But it's the true sign of strength when you don't constantly have to say how great you are or prove things. When you simply can just "be" and don't need to put others in their place. Have your opinions and allow others to have theirs.
I obviously don't know you so this is more of a general guideline where everything might not apply to you personally.1

Lmfao "what are the secrets ways?" i know what you mean though! i used to have that problem. you just got to realize that being more humble will make you look even better. and its nice to be confident, but its not all about you. im not trying to sound rude but thats what i had to think about and realize. there are so many things going on in the world, so many important people who have contributed something to us, so many events, so many things always going on around us. also it helps to see how there are some great people in your life too who are just as awesome as you and me1
