How we feel about ourselves is a mirror image of how we feel about other people. We’re conditioned from an early age to think and behave a certain way. We’re also conditioned to feel a certain way and don’t stop to question our feelings.
I believe we must come to look deep within ourselves to work out how we feel, about our lives, about life and other people and must also come to include ourselves in that equation. I think that if our upbringings were more open and natural in an uninhibited manner, we would come to understand and learn to explore our feelings more.
We can feel, but not know how we feel. There is a difference. Perhaps we need to explore our feelings from an unconscious level, because it is our unconscious thoughts that hold some of the answers to how we feel. I don’t think enough of us explore those possibilities.
