Gone are the days, when big hearted people where to be found everywhere although they did not have much to call their own. Nowadays, people have amassed so much fame, wealth and experiences that their hearts have become small in the process. Along with all these materialistic pleasures of modern world also comes your own worst enemy – Ego. A person who has a lot of fame and wealth to himself, is offended by the slightest actions or words thrown against him by others, leading to tonnes of ego and grudge within himself. He begins to feel that he has achieved so much in his life that he doesn’t deserve to be treated in such a way. Once this attitude kicks in, then there is not stopping the individual from turning anything and everything to be about themselves. What ego does to a person is that it takes away all sense of rationality leading to clashes within and outside ourselves.
One simple way to get rid of this monster within ourselves which tears apart our character and relationship with others is by learning to unlearn. Do not always put yourself ahead of others, think about the person by being in their shoes and how you would react to the same situation from their viewpoint. Unlearn all that you learnt from your life, and keep in mind that you can still learn a lot from others at every stage of your life. This will give you’re a sense of humbleness leading to the good riddance of this monstrous habit. Some other ways you can adopt to get rid of ego is by practicing gratitude for what God has given you, letting go and forgiving others for their misgivings and surrendering your need to control everything that happens in your life. Remember, whatever happens, happens for the best.
