The 𝘦𝘨𝘰 is our sense of self and self-image. It develops during childhood and is not only completely normal, but is essential for healthy functioning. 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗲𝗴𝗼 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗻 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳.
You need to have an 𝘦𝘨𝘰 to take care of yourself.
𝗛𝗼𝘄𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗮𝗻’𝘁 𝗼𝗻𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳. 𝗢𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗮𝗻 𝗲𝗴𝗼𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗰 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲:
✅Defending your point while also trying to force someone to share it as a truth
✅Judging someone and feeling inferior or superior as a result
✅Demanding someone else behave a certain way to ensure you’re comfortable
✅Criticizing or dwelling on your past choices
✅Saying “yes” when you mean “no” simply for another’s approval
✅Believing you can fix, save, or heal another
The 𝘦𝘨𝘰 is a buffer to the part of the self who judges, hates, gets sad or depressed, gets angry, is fearful, or contributes to one's negative self-perception.
Yet get this; there is hidden gem of contentment when you allow your 𝘦𝘨𝘰 to be fully integrated and don’t fight it like an enemy.
After we fully integrate our 𝘦𝘨𝘰 we can operate from a state of authenticity, rather than from judgments and blame. You are no longer at war with yourself or others. All aspects of who you are as a human become intermeshed into acceptability, love, and wholeness. 𝗢𝘂𝗿 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘃𝗲𝗱, 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝗽𝗮𝗹𝗽𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘀𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗽𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗲.
