Assessing Ourselves

Who in the world are we?!

The more we experience life the more we discover ourselves. We discover new traits and abilities, we surprise ourselves, we’re told something about us we would not have believed about ourselves, and sometimes we deny it when we shouldn’t.

One of the best behaviors we can have is self discovery. No one knows themself perfectly. The journey is to grow in our knowledge and understanding of self.

The exact words may vary, but many wise people have said we tend to judge ourselves based more on our aspirations than our current strengths and weaknesses.

That still leaves the answer to the question, “who in the world are we?” The answer is no one knows exactly, it’s part of the journey. Assessing ourselves is a part of assessing life’s choices — perhaps the most important part.
