Meet My Altered Ego, I am not definitely a psycho if you are wondering about it. This has nothing to do with any mental disorder. That’s the misconception about alter ego, a term used in psychology for having dual personality disorder. It has become a part of our everyday language that is associated with different meanings. It means “the other self”, “the other I”. I always refer my close friends in real life as my alter egos. Sometimes I can lean on to them during difficult times in life. An article in my other blog, I associated myself having a bipolar like syndrome but I really beg to differ in some ways. It was just my reflections. You may want to read more about it. I can assure you that I still have a sound state of mind whether you believe it or not. I can normally be crazy at times when having fun times with my friends because we enjoy life no matter how stressful it may seem. But most of the times serious and focus when achieving a goal or doing time-pressured task.
But here in my blog My Altered Ego has something to do with the “other me” when coping up with tough times in my life, another outlet aside from my close friends. It is more on finding my inner self for self motivation, clarity and understanding. Mind and body talk for meditation. It is beneficial because it gives a rational perspective on dealing with life itself surpassing or even withstanding hardships as well as coping up with anxieties and stress that real life brings. It reminds me to leave all negativity and continue to always see the brighter side of everything. It serves as my balance for everything. Worthy to keep as a companion to keep me reminded whenever things are not going too well. Keeps me standing whenever I fall. But basically, it is all about the connections of our mind, body and soul.
I am aware that I imaginary created a developed alter ego as means of adaptations from not so good experiences in my life. It has an accurate sense why I developed it, to keep me going and keep my sanity over the years. It is just a way of saying, to completely break me you must break me and my alter ego. Teasing with a smile. Because in reality alter ego is just another character perfectly natural psychological tool of escapism. It is just our mental projection, a wonderful reflection of ourselves but the real us is far more superior. It is what gives me the good positive glow aura within me. Most of us has the “other self within” but some are not aware of it.Take time to explore for it might lead you to the good way of life or give your life back.
We have our own ways of coping up and this works over the years of my life. It brings out the best in me. The only thing I have difficulties working on is about love partner relationships. Maybe I need a love Guru to coach me with this. Help me work on my overflowing emotional attachments that makes me and my alter ego so damn weak, my addiction to love.
Enough for the day. Happy Sunday y’all. Give me some lovin’!
