Have you ever wondered if everything you do is a reflection of who you are? Perhaps you’ve walked past an empty building, looked into the mirror, or stared at the ceiling. You accept the reflection of yourself as normal. After all, your face is your reflection. But what about when it is lit from below or from the side? What happens to the reflection when you look at it differently?
You have conditioned beliefs from an impressionable childhood, which you carry into adulthood. When you think of those beliefs, you probably don’t even realize it; they formed subconsciously. These beliefs may have been molded by people you met during a time when you were impressionable and were not aware of them. Thankfully, your life gives you feedback that allows you to check the congruency of your beliefs and correct them. Consider your outer environment to be a mirror of your inner one and look for connections and parallels.
Taking time to reflect on your behavior is one of the most important parts of self-awareness. It can help you understand what causes certain emotions and behavior. It can help you grow in many ways, including becoming a better person. Self-awareness is an essential part of growing as a person. And it’s one of the most important tools in life. You must learn to embrace yourself for who you are and be honest with yourself in order to improve.
