How walking on eggshells can be a healing process for the ego. I know this sounds a bit strange but let me dive into my experience with this a bit. I’ve had the blessings to work with many well known teachers and have had to work with many teams to build and launch projects.
I remember one encounter with Jack Canfield author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” book series. Me with Jack in the picture.
For some reason Jack’s energy has stayed with me ever since we worked together on my last film “The Last Formula”. When he welcomed me and my crew to his home for the interview I felt this energy from him that honestly can’t be explained. It’s the energy I’ve felt from inner successful relationships I’ve worked with.
They never correct me or try to install their ways into me. Its always a beautiful organic loving conversation with forward progress. They have their own opinions of course but there is an art in how they walk gently into explaining their reasoning. There is this calm way about how they own their way. It’s not that they walk on eggshells is that they are careful with their words around others as a loving way because many people are dealing with deeply unseen traumas.
So I’ve scaled back my expression and it has felt like walking on eggshells but not as a limit to my freedom. As a way to show me how to be more present with the people I love and connect with in my life. I use to just rebel and blurt out anything that came to mind and I felt that was very irresponsible. Because it was really just a way to justify to project my pain onto someone else.
Nobody deserves to deal with your pain that’s yours to heal and deal with. So for me walking on eggshells has become a healthy limit and a good tool in healing my ego and pain into a gentle place. This may not be for you and that’s understandable this is merely how I do it. And it’s given me many blessings and control over my emotions.
