People who work from their ego will always make other people’s life difficult. Unfortunately, we can never get to know anyone whose identity and ego have become intertwined.
The ego stems from the conscious, from a person’s sense of self-importance that becomes over-inflated and who uses it to avoid dealing with their own issues. The ego allows a person to cut themselves off emotionally from those around them becoming emotionally separate and that’s how they will live their life.
Being on the other end of an other’s ego means we will always be the issue. Whatever goes wrong for them in their life, someone else will always be at fault. We will go through life not knowing that person. It’s sad of course, because they won’t get to know themselves either, because they will never deal with themselves in the normal way.
An ego can turn up in feelings of inferiority and self-hatred. Unfortunately, the ego mirrors the image that we have of ourselves that gives us our identity and that will always make it difficult for anyone who doesn’t work from their ego. Separation through the ego, is an inevitable part of what the ego is.
People tend to use their ego to complain about a situation they find themselves in. They use it to complain about other people, choosing to point out their flaws whilst ignoring their own. In certain circumstances; they may also complain about how someone could have handled themselves better.
The ego thinks for itself and talks for us. Working from the ego means we’re never fully in control, because our thoughts are in control of us. The sad reality is that where people with an ego think they know us, it’s their ego that dictates their reality of us.
Finally, that isn’t the same as knowing us in our own reality, as we come to know ourselves.
