Higher Ego Flexibility and Difficulty Interacting with People in Healthy Ways
Aired Wednesday, August 4, 2021 at 8:00 AM PST / 11:00 AM EST
This week on It’s Your Ego—Stupid!, Dr. Nick will be looking intensely into the mirror of our ability to interact with people in healthy ways. Another way of putting it is, “How good are we at getting along with people?” Not just friends and family, but people in general. Our success in connecting with people in the broader sense—acquaintances and strangers—has important implications for our social, emotional, and spiritual growth. It’s this growth that allows us to experience peace and love for all people, regardless of their background. Something, many people have trouble doing, which is having a harmful impact on the quality of their lives. Failure to cultivate this growth often sets the stage for mental health, marital, sexual, D&A, legal, and work adjustment difficulties. Unfortunately, for those experiencing lower or higher ego power, flexibility, and vulnerability, there are lots of ‘getting along with people’ issues, rooted in these ego energies, where they have become entrapped in thought, emotional, and behavior patterns, in which they are spending more time surviving in society rather than truly living.
Unfortunately, for those with higher ego flexibility, their overly flexible mind often leads them to readily accept what others are telling them to think or believe. They have difficulty questioning what others are telling them to think or believe, and can readily become followers—sometimes of the wrong people. Their overly flexible approach to what they are being told often leads them to accept it as truth or gospel. Slowly but surely, they take on the ideas, beliefs, values, prejudices, and even illusions of others, while losing themselves in the relationship. This undermines the forming of healthy relationships when someone stops being themselves and starts becoming someone else, in order to be in the relationship. A relationship in which someone loses connection to their truth in order to live in the truth of another person. Roles they may find their way into living, until they awaken to their ego energy, include the Cultist, the Loyalist, and the Adult Child.
During the show I’ll be looking at symptoms, reflections of ego stupidity, and the impact on spiritual wellness which occurs when a person is being affected by higher ego flexibility energy in their ability to interact with people in healthy ways. I’ll also be looking at specific ego insights needed to transform higher ego flexibility into a healthier and more balanced place.
Please join me Wednesdays at 11:00 am (ET) when I will be sharing what you’ve taught me about what ego’s doing within your life, humanly and spiritually.
