At one point during my awakening process,i was attempting to tame my ego. It is my belief that the ego grows disproportionately large in those with inner child issues. The process of disassembling such a powerful force is by no means a linear task. At one point I recognized my distorted thought process as the product of an unhealthy belief system. This is where the ego acts as a detriment ,rather than the humanizer it is intended to be. I have always said ,we do not have the ability to truly see ourselves. Our lives are illuminated by the light supporting our belief system.
