Ego vs. Inner Child: What's The Difference?
Your ego is the protector of your inner child. It acts as a mask, hiding any vulnerabilities or fears your inner child has.
The ego responds to your inner child through internalized programs, controlling how they feel and react to any given situation.
It may sound like your ego is doing your inner child a favor, but what it’s really doing is suppressing your inner child’s true feelings, and stifling their creativity and self expression.
Unlike the ego, which holds onto all of the past versions of you, YOU are the awareness and energy that exists only in the now. It’s YOU that has the ability to create new versions of yourself and be the guide, and guardian your inner child needs you to be.
They need you to be brave for them, believe in them, bring your focus and awareness back into your body, and provide them with intentional guidance that will encourage, support and create space for them to step out of the ego’s shadow, and express themselves without fear.
