The better I understand myself, the better I’m able to accept or change who I am. Being in the dark about who I am means continuing to get caught up in my own internal struggles and allowing outside forces to mold and shape me. Such was my life for a long time. Self-view began to clear a little when I started asking questions of myself and sticking with them repeatedly until pieces of an answer appeared. Who am I? Where am I going? What pleases me about myself? Who would I like to be? How would I like to change? What do I like about myself? In what ways can I improve my life? Am I living up to my potential? Getting to know myself better began and continues as a quest, one that will last the rest of my life. As long as my desire is genuine I am capable of being all I want to be.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.
