How Self Awareness Can Change Your Life
Being self-aware is one of the most crucial aspects of life. However, this might be easy to say and difficult to achieve. We are so occupied by the external influences in our life that we hardly take out any time to introspect and internalize our own lives. Unfortunately, most of the people spend a big part of their life in judgement of other people instead of looking inwardly into their own lives. Self-awareness can open the doors to self-development and personal growth. It can turn your life around mentally, physically as well as spiritually.
Most of us do not even realize that almost all of our life is spent away fooling ourselves. There are so many lies that we have gotten used to living that we don’t even realize that they are lies. Our pretensions and affectations are so tied to our lives that we can’t even tell the truth from a lie. Social work and charity is promoted and a lot of people are involved in it. Most of the people do not even realize that they do good things not because they are really concerned about others but because they want to feel good about themselves. Are you also living such lies?
There is a continuous pursuit to change ourselves but most of it happens only at the superficial level. The biggest problem with us is that we are not even ready to accept ourselves the way we are. If we cannot accept our own existence completely, how can we embrace the world? Accepting self completely and wholly does not mean overlooking shortcomings and closing the door to changes. It means knowing the starting point.
