Ego

A talented therapist once told me “your ego will always want to be the main character in your movie.”  When you start making choices from places other than your ego, you start using your “full” self.  The farther you move the ego down in the credits of your life, the louder the ego gets.  Your ego wants that star role.

When you are conscious of your ego, it allows for you to know when to let your ego play the main character, supporting role, or be an extra.

And, that shift from auto-pilot egoic self to your consciousness of looking at your full self requires change, adjustment, and sometimes tantrums and tears.

Think of it as your ego going through grief.  And, like grief, it takes time to accept, deal, and move on.
