Understanding Yourself

Understanding yourself is a lifelong journey. Your self-awareness grows as you age, and our understanding of the world around us changes as well. When you’re young, you’re more likely to base your understanding of the world on what your parents tell you and what they teach you. You might not have much experience with other people or cultures, so it’s easy for kids to believe what their parents tell them about how the world works. As you grow older, though, your experiences will begin to shape your understanding of how things work—and that can make it difficult to see things from other people’s perspectives. It’s important to try to understand why someone might think differently than you do; this will help improve your relationships with others and also make it easier for others to understand you as well.

Understanding yourself is the key to a successful life. It’s the foundation for everything you do, and it’s what allows you to grow and change as needed. The first step in understanding yourself is getting past your own biases. This can be easy when we have a strong sense of self-awareness, but it can also be a challenge if we’re not used to looking at ourselves objectively—especially when it comes to our flaws. When you are able to see yourself from an outside perspective, you’ll be able to identify patterns in your behavior that aren’t working for you. Then, by taking action on those patterns, you’ll be able to put yourself on a path toward success.

I’m a big fan of self-reflection, and always have been. I think it’s important to take time to understand yourself—not just what makes you tick, but also why. I’ve found that the best way to do this is by asking yourself questions and then giving yourself time to think about them. For example: “Why do I prefer my own company over time with other people?” or “What makes me feel good about myself?” or even “How do I want to be seen by others?” It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, but taking a little bit of time each day to reflect on your goals, values and beliefs can really help you find your way when things get tough. Not only will it give you confidence in your ability to navigate tough times with poise and grace, but it will also help you make better choices about how you spend each day.

Sometimes, it can be difficult to understand why we do what we do. We might feel like we’re stuck in a rut, and that our lives are on autopilot. We might wonder if there’s something better out there for us, but feel like we’re just not able to get it. But the truth is: you are enough. You are perfect as you are. And it’s up to you to decide how you want to live your life. The first step? Understanding yourself. In order to make changes in your life, you need to have a clear idea of who you are and what makes you tick—what makes you happy, what makes you sad, what makes your heart sing, and what makes your brain spin with anxiety. This self-knowledge will help guide your decisions about where to go from here: whether that means staying put or making some changes in your life that will bring more joy into it (and maybe even get rid of some stress).


One of the most important things you can do for yourself is understand who you are. This sounds obvious, but it’s not always easy to put into practice. When I was younger, I never thought much about understanding myself—I just assumed that if I understood what other people wanted from me and did my best to give them that, everything would be fine. It wasn’t until later in life that I realized how wrong that assumption was. It’s true that there are some aspects of ourselves that we can’t change (like our height or eye color), but many of our behaviors are learned from others and can be changed as we grow older and more experienced in life. The first step in understanding ourselves is truly observing ourselves in a nonjudgmental way and asking ourselves questions like: What do I want? What makes me happy? What do I dislike? How do others perceive me when they meet me for the first time? Do they see me as kind or mean-spirited? Do they see me as funny or serious? Do they think highly of themselves because they have a position of power at work or home? These questions might seem simple enough, but answering them honestly will help you find out who you really are—and

A lot of people are confused by the idea that they don’t have to be someone else. They think that they’re supposed to model themselves after someone they admire, or follow the advice of experts, or even just do what everyone else is doing. But there’s nothing wrong with being yourself. And if you aren’t happy being yourself, then it’s possible that you’re not really yourself yet. It might seem like an obvious point, but it’s actually a hard one for most people: no matter how much you admire another person and want to be like them, there will always be parts of their lives that are different from yours—and that’s okay! You don’t have to try to be exactly like them in order to be happy in your own life. It can help to think about other people as something like role models or mentors rather than trying to copy them completely. For example, if someone tells you they’ve been working out three times a week and eating better since last month—but also happens to smoke cigarettes every day—you could try going for walks instead of working out as often as they do (if that works for your body). Or if someone


If you’re like me, you’re a little confused about how to understand yourself. I mean, how do you know what makes you happy? What does it even mean to be “yourself” in the first place? The answer is simple: just be yourself. It sounds lame, but it’s true. You don’t have to be a certain way or like a certain thing or do a certain thing to be yourself. You can just be who you are—a unique person with your own thoughts and feelings and experiences—and that’s enough for now. And if you’re wondering why being yourself isn’t enough yet, then keep reading!

You are not your job. You are not your bank account. You are not how many people follow you on Instagram, or how many likes you get on a post. You are so much more than the sum total of your social media presence, and it’s time to stop letting it define you. It’s time to start taking back control over how you feel about yourself, and what you believe about who you are. It’s time to stop letting the negative comments from strangers on the internet affect your self-esteem and self-worth, because they don’t matter! You matter—to yourself, and to those who love you.

Stay focus
