Only then can you separate yourself from your need to always be right.
Only then can you genuinely try to see things from another person's perspective.
Only then can you be more human—loving, caring, feeling, and even vulnerable.
Only then can you be true to yourself and true to others.
Besides, there's no one way of doing things. Why insist that yours is the only right way, the absolute way?
When you separate yourself from your ego, you can finally start coming up with the best solution in any problem—a solution open to feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticisms.
How do you separate yourself from your ego?
Whenever you get hurt, ask yourself, “Who’s really getting hurt, me or my ego?"
You'll realize that, most of the time, the things that hurt us do not really hurt us. They hurt our egos.
And the things that hurt us are simply from well-meaning people or those who see things from a different perspective.
When you understand that people see things from a different perspective, when you learn to separate yourself from your ego, you'll get hurt less often and you can focus more on things that truly and deeply matter.
Yes, the world needs more people like you—caring, loving, vulnerable, and not ruled by your ego.
