Letting go of your ego

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

The inflated ego

How many times have you started a fight just to satisfy your ego?
How many times have you become angry just because people didn't treat you the way you think you deserve?
How many times have you felt bad just because you were not as successful as you think you should be?

How many times have you become depressed just because you weren’t able to reach the goals that your ego was demanding?

Some people live their whole lives fighting for the sake of satisfying their inflated egos. Each one of us feels worthy in a way or another even those who feel inferior But the problem happens when this sense of self worth becomes exaggerated to the extent that it leads the person to a life full of suffering and pain.

The Skyscraper

Why do you think some companies have buildings that are close to sky scrappers in their length? Do they really need all of this space? Some companies really need it while others need such tall buildings to satisfy the inflated ego of the owners!!

The sky scrapper here is just a symbol that reflects the demands of the person's Ego. We all build sky scrapper but in different forms. Some of us become leaders; others seek financial success while others start wars just to satisfy the needs of their egos.

Your Ego and depression

Do all people succeed in building their own sky scrappers? Of course not and that's why some people end up depressed. If your achievements were not big enough to satisfy your ego demands then you will certainly end up depressed.

The severity of this depression will depend mainly on the perceived difference between your ego driven ambition and your current achievements.

Your Ego and relationships

Some people remain unsatisfied with their relationships yet fail to get out of them just to protect their egos.

In my book How to get over anyone in few days i described how can ego issues prevent a person from getting over someone for a very long period of time.

In such a case the person's ego is hurt because he was dumped and then he incorrectly thinks he is feeling bad after the breakup because he was in love rather than realizing that its all about his ego! In such a case the recovery from the breakup is directly dependent on the person's ability to let go of his ego.

How to let got of the Ego?

2knowmyslef is a not a religious website but for some life problems there aren’t any other practical solution other than believing in God. Believing that God is the one who is in control of everything and that he is the one who is responsible for everything that happens to you is the only way that can help you let go of your Ego.

For if God is the one who controllers everything then we are actually just using the tools he gives us to achieve our goals.

I am not trying to say that we are doing no effort and that God is doing everything for us. Actually some of us did their best but after all we did it using God’s tools.

For if he was to take some of these tools we would have never been who we are now. Everything that we posses now is a result of the utilization of what God gave us. God usually don’t give people things directly, after all you can’t just wake up and find money beside your bed but instead he gives you the tools like the mind, funds for college education or even a meeting with a person who inspires you.

If you have an inflated ego then don’t put yourself down or think that you are a narcissist but just ask God for the right tools because he is the only one who can provide you with them.

2knowmyself is not a simple article website nor it’s a place where you will find shallow fixes, but it’s a place where you will find effective techniques that are backed by psychology and that are presented in an obvious and understandable format. If you think that this is some kind of marketing hype then see what other visitors say about 2knowmyself.The book How to make someone fall in love with you was released by 2knowmyself.com; the book will dramatically increase your chance of letting someone fall in love with you.
