EGO: The Cancer That Kills A Relationship

The term, “ego” has a benign meaning of “self-
worth.” In this sense, ego is indistinguishable
from one’s deepest values, as a sense of
genuine self-worth depends on fidelity to our
deepest values.

The problem comes when ego inflates to a
feeling that the self is superior to other people.
This leads to entitlement, i.e., a belief that you
deserve special consideration, which is bound
to produce resentment and discord in

Love relationships in particular require compassion and equality in terms of value, which is why ego is the worst enemy of a relationship.

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.

To be able to truly love yourself and to truly be able to love someone else, you must drop the ego. This is absolutely essential to finding an
amazing relationship, but it’s equally critical
to maintaining and continually improving a
relationship once you’re already in it.

Some people remain unsatisfied with their
relationships yet fail to get out of them just to
protect their egos. Others find it hard getting over someone for a very long period of time, all because of their ego, which is either too strong or too weak.

Relationships are meant to be the most beautiful part of human life, but unfortunately, it is the most complicated one. In one word the reason is “EGO.”

If you break the word Relationship as “Real I on Ship”, you’ll realize that the ship will sink one day if you are traveling with the load of EGO. Most of the time, we are not aware that the insect of EGO is there and eating our relationship.

“For God Sake… Can you stop with this
nonsense? Can you stop doubting me? Can you
stop blaming me for everything? Will you
please give me my space? PLEASE LET ME BREATHE. Sometimes, it feels as if I am stuck in a cage.”

Is this your story, do you really think this is LOVE?

Humans need attention. They need to feel
special, and they need someone else to help
them to understand how important they are in
this world. Sometimes we have EGO but we
don’t know it or maybe we just fail to accept it.

You can use this knowledge to analyze your situation and you can see who is running your ship. Is that the Real you or Ego?

You won’t be able to survive with Ego. The ship
is going to sink sooner or later. Self love is very
important to save that ship. If you really want
love, then first love yourself, value others and let go of your EGO.
