If someone else comes to you and tells you your life mission and reason for being here and you believe them, you are a fool. You haven't found enlightenment and you haven't found out how special you are or your mission and reason for being here, because it isn't your reason for being here. It is just cheap talk from someone who is telling you what you want to hear, someone who doesn't know you. You believing them means you don't even know yourself, so how on Earth could they know you better?

False ego is the programmed by society version of yourself, like a mask we hide behind in order to fit in with others who are in false ego. The real ego is just your sense of self. But you can not know your real ego unless you have removed the false one, by connecting to your Higher Self. Then you can tell which is false and which is programmed. Before that it is hard to tell.
You might think that voice in your head is you, but it is thinking with words, and words were created by others, so how can you know who or what is thinking those words? Unless you get even deeper and realise who or what is thinking those words and why it is thinking those words in that way.
For example you might think to yourself that you are not good enough. Who says you are not good enough? How do you know that whoever said the words that made you think you are not good enough was right about it? They don't know you better than you, or do they? Is it really you who thinks you are not good enough, or something someone else told you years ago and it attached itself to your false ego and now your false ego is believing it?
It is very hard to change once your false ego has accepted something. It is what 'knowing thyself' is all about, finding the authentic you, the one that isn't trying to please others, or fit in, or impress anyone.

Why do so many see conflict as negative? It is how we learn about ourselves, and what is important to us, and what stands up to be tested. If something doesn't stand up when someone else disagrees with it, then it means you should let go of it, instead of stubbornly holding on to it and then hating the person for showing you the truth. It is that realisation that what we believe to be true, isn't always, that helps us find out who we really are and what things we only believe because we have been programmed to believe them. So when someone runs away at the first signs of someone disagreeing with them, it means they are unwilling to be proven wrong.
