I have hear people say that we must know ourselves. This seems like common sense but what does it really mean?
I have been pondering this question a lot lately.
I think that to know yourself, you have to commit to learning about and accepting yourself. This may look different from person to person but, essentially, it starts with spending time by yourself.
In this time, treat yourself the way you would a person you are dating. Feel free to laugh, go out to dinner, see a movie, go to a museum, etc. Have fun with it and remember that dating is not all fun and games. Take your time. Ask yourself hard questions about the attitudes and behaviors you notice.
Once you take the time to know yourself, you can begin to move toward being the kind of person you would like to be.
Just some thoughts.
