Integrating The Ego

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

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. ⁣
