Sigmund Freud has defined ego in a very different way than it is defined here in the subsequent writings. If you work out regularly to groom your inner self and spirituality then it is highly unlikely for you to not know what ego is. It is that state of your brain that excites to feel concerned, apprehensive and grieved. The most easily activated entity of our body is ego, especially when there is an apparent and immediate threat or danger to us. Normally ego is considered good and is only to blame when things are falling apart especially where two or more than two persons are involved.
When Is Letting Go of Ego Important?
Ego is simply your “self”. It has the power to mold our uniqueness as a fit, safe, equalized, content, vivacious person. It may help us become a role model for other people involved in our lives and our offspring. Our ability to embrace challenges depends on our ego. Despite its fruitfulness, ego has a tendency to transform our lives and our nature with its schematic and deceptive attributes. It brings us to a very dreadful verge of always encapsulated in fury and disenchantments of the past or the series of distressing thoughts of the future. When is letting go of ego necessary? Ask yourself those questions:
Have you ever tried fighting just so your ego is gratified?
Do you blame your ego as a hindrance towards achieving your goal which made you depressed?
In a word, your ego should not be the reason for you to do things you don't want to do, nor should it deter you from making the right decision.
