We never seem to understand who we are. Our perceptions about ourselves are always on the either side of the scale, either we think we are better off than we really are, or we think we are worse than we really are.
That thinking stems from a ton of things, but that sort of thinking cannot be ignored which also counts a lack of self awareness.
Without self awareness, we are never really able to understand us. Subtract all the outer layers, and then understanding what’s left, because that’s the real us.
Better or Worse than we really are? That thinking will unfortunately never make us understand who we really are, and who do we want to be.
On the bright side, everyone does it, on the other side, we really need to stop doing it.
