There may well come a day when you will find yourself in need of a body shop Salt Lake City to take that ding out of your car. A ding of course within the context in which I am writing is a small dent in the exterior of your car’s body. There is no functional reason to have this ding repaired. Essentially your car will function as well regardless of whether you have the ding repaired or not. But still there is something in your head that insists it must be repaired. This is your ego speaking to you my friend.
THE EGOIC NATURE OF THE BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
When you think about it, the body shop is performing the function of repairing your ego every bit as much as it is repairing that ding in your car. Once the ding is repaired you begin to feel better about yourself until the next ding comes into your life. Now mind you, this ding need not be on your car. Nor does it need to be a ding on one of your physical possessions. No, the next ding could be a ding to your health, or career, or your finances for example.
So what then is the solution? I am not suggesting that you not have that ding repaired. I am not suggesting that you drive your car around town trying not to feel bad about that ding. No, the ding that must be repaired is a ding that resides deeper within yourself. And let me tell you, this ding is not an easy ding to repair and certainly not a ding that I can repair for you in a three hundred word blog post. But what I can do is point out to you that the ding which you find yourself upset about is not the ding in your car. Let’s start with that.
