Finding yourself is not an easy task. They say you know yourself slightly better than others, which is true by the way. However, I believe knowing yourself is a process and it goes further on with time. With time you come across various different situations that force you to unleash the hidden you within you. You experience and realize the hidden side of yourself. You get to learn what potential as well as weakness you have. You get to learn how you react to different events and emotions and happenings.
The more you travel through time, the more you will get to know yourself. The time keeps revealing facts about you. But, the point here is not that whether it is happening to you or not. It happens with everyone and is happening to you as well. The only effort you need to take is to look at what hidden facts about you time has revealed about which you were completely unaware. Very often you remain unaware of these facts just because you are not able to recognize them or you are just so busy that you don’t get time to look after yourself.
Though the time reveals hidden you, it may not reveal to extreme. Yes, it goes like this way only. It may happen that you never come across any particular situation which could have revealed a certain fact about you. If you really want to know yourself, you will need to explore yourself. You may need to push yourself beyond limits under different kind of situations and scenarios. You will need to experiment with yourself. You will need to create circumstances that lead you to find hidden fact about you. It is both fun as well as adventure. Sometimes it takes no time and sometimes it takes a long patience to make some realizations and finally accept them as they are facts about you.
No matter how difficult it would be, knowing yourself will always be worth of it. If you are looking to do exactly what I explained till now, than below are some starting points.
- Let your emotions flow
- Involve yourself in a task you don’t like
- Surround yourself with people of diverse thoughts
- Talk to strangers
- Go for adventure
- Accept the challenge
The list is never-ending. Just try different things, experiment with yourself and reveal the hidden you. If you have any other points to add in the list, let me know. Any comments, views, opinions, suggestions and experiences are welcome as always.
