Do you know what it really means to find yourself? To discover yourself in a world that is changed for good. In life it is the most important thing we will do.
As we continue our journey, not really knowing ourselves; we may also continue to listen to the inner critic that gives you all the wrong ideas about yourself.
We need to like ourselves without the ego. But finding ‘us’ is an unselfish process that must be at the heart of everything we do. For us to add value to our lives, we have to first know who we are and what our values are. We must understand our past, know our story and be at peace with ourselves.
We must continue to evolve and uncover our unique stories and be okay with those. We must recognise who we want to be, and passionately set to fulfilling our goals. Learn to identify and be okay with your experiences, be open and vulnerable and understand what makes you, you.
Whether our experiences are good or bad, those are our experiences and cannot be changed. Instead we must learn to embrace them. Learning about yourself isn’t something to be feared or avoided and berating yourself for your mistakes is pointless because that will just serve to hold you back even further.
Make sense of your past and be open to your experiences. Try to understand why they were meant for you. It’s a personal journey we will all benefit from taking. The better our ‘coherent narrative’ the more we will make mindful conscious choices in our present, that will represent our true self.
