Some of us will go through life never admitting or recognising we’re wrong, or admit our faults; but would still be quick off the mark when it came to recognising other people’s faults. Do we even recognise our faults?
There’s something about the human condition that makes us hesitant to admit we’re ever at fault. Even when it becomes obvious to everyone else, we’re still not prepared to admit we’ve screwed up. I know that if my physical issues had been addressed, my behaviour would have been different.
I did recognise my own behaviour traits, which presented through my frustrations of living with something I knew nothing about, but unconsciously I couldn’t stop myself. When we learn to understand and recognise our own faults, we’re more likely to want to change our presenting behaviour.
In my own case that was more difficult to do, because the underlying physical and emotional issues were never addressed. That was my parents’ problem, not mine.
