expanded egoism that is focused on alter ego, a significant other for whom you care as much or even more than for yourself.
chekhov’s darling is a perfect example of alter–egoism: she gives herself up to her loved ones and lives solely by their interests and feelings. this is her way to cherish her own ego.
