3 ways to strengthen your ego:
- Acceptance: Start by accepting something small. It can either be accepting the rain, that person who cut you off in traffic or forgetting to take the trash out.
- Adjusting expectations: Every unrealistic expectation we create sets us up for disappointment. By adjusting what the expectations are regarding us and other people in our lives it lower our frustrations when expectations aren’t met.
- Consciously raising our frustrations and stress tolerance level: The strength of your self develops by framing things in empowering meanings. Positive framing and reframing allows us to take a new view of things, which then effects how we actually feel about things. In this way, framing and reframing things can enhance our ego-strength to face, cope with, and even master the challenges of life.
