We all have one.
This is for all the people who say “Say I DON’T have AN EGO”.
Oh my dear, we all do.
Please, do yourself a favor; get to understand your ego and how it has developed.
Don’t guard it overprotect it, defend it or fight against it before getting to know it.
Some Monday freebie:
1 The ID: The id operates on the pleasure principle , me now now no matter the consequences or who’s affected by them “I want it my way 🎶” ( yes I sang that!)
2 The ego; The ego operates according to the reality principle.
The ego engages in secondary process thinking, which is rational, realistic, and orientated towards problem-solving. Often compromising or postponing satisfaction to avoid negative consequences of society— helping balance the id’s crazy impulses. Sadly on occasion self voiding and cancelling for others. #payattention
3 The superego: is more about values and moral. Is less self seeking.
The superego’s function is to control the id’s impulses, especially those which society outlaws, such as sex and aggression. It also has the function of persuading the ego to turn to moralistic goals rather than simply realistic ones and to strive for perfection.
The superego has a deeper inherent goal to help people become better self and is often perceived and taken as if it makes the ego feel guilty and ashamed for it.
Get to know your ego
Let us recognize who we are and where we come from. People use various defense mechanism when they feel attacked simply because they don’t have the knowledge and don’t take the time to listed or read a little.
“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” Proverbs 16:18
