Ego is what holds my Parts together into a functioning Me.
Parts who are burdened, carrying unhealed wounds and unmet fears, derange Ego into reactions of hostility, fear, greed, anger and blaming.
With my Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist’s help, I connect with the wounded Parts within and help them unburden those hurtful things they carry.
Ego is then affirmed as the happy, healthy-functioning organization of Me.
And I don’t need to give it up til I die.
