Knowing Myself More Than Anyone Else

Knowing myself more than anyone else has definitely been my biggest life goal and achievement. This is a life long goal that I must consistently work on. In life we can be inundated with the thoughts and ideas of others that sometimes are valuable and at other times unsolicited. When you understand your values, beliefs, strengths, weaknesses, and desires you can better navigate the world around you more. By knowing ourselves, we are able to make better decisions, goals and choices that better align with who we truly are.

One of the first steps in knowing ourselves is to take the time to reflect on our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. This can be done through journaling, meditation, taking a few moments each day to check in with ourselves. Or writing weekly blogs like I have been doing for over 2 years. My blogs have given me the space to check in weekly with myself and reflect. Paying attention to my inner world as allowed me to uncover patterns and beliefs that hold me back or have taken me down the wrong direction.

Another important aspect of knowing myself is seeking feedback from people. And only seeking feedback from people I value, that want the best for me, care about me or even take the time to get to know me. It can require vulnerability and openness to hearing constructive criticism. However we need that feedback from trusted friends, family members to help us see things we may not see in ourselves. 

Self-reflection and seeking feedback are important tools in the journey of getting to know ourselves. It is also important to take action and make changes based on what we learn about ourselves. We cannot reflect on ourselves and see what we can improve and change but stay the same. This may involve setting boundaries, letting go of toxic relationships, or pursuing a new career path that aligns with our passions and values.

Ultimately, knowing ourselves is a lifelong process that requires dedication, consistently checking in with ourselves and having a willingness to confront difficult parts of ourselves. It is not always easy to confront our fears, insecurities, and shortcomings, but by doing so, we can find our true potential and live a life that is authentic and fulfilling.

Knowing myself more than anyone else has allowed me to navigate my world around me better. I know who I am at that is everything. The thoughts and opinions of the world don't dictate who I am. So definitely take the time to get to know yourself. Reflect on your thoughts and feelings, seek feedback from others, and take action to create a life that aligns with who you truly are. The journey may be challenging at times, but the rewards of living a life that is true to yourself are well worth the effort.
