Personally speaking, ego is a product of the devil. We all carry our own demons, and my ego was one I carefully took care of. It got me no where, it fulfilled me with temporary satisfaction but left me incomplete. I’ve came to realize a lot was hidden in the opportunities I refused to open myself too because of my pride... So, my advice to you is put your pride aside and seek what God is trying to show you, because everything put into your perspective is for a reason, even this post... But your ego makes you selective and can misshape your perspective.
