“Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised or a little mistaken.”
― Jane Austen
What do you believe about yourself? What is your real truth? Below is a video about people who describe themselves in one way and others describe that same person in another. How we think of ourselves matters.
How we see ourselves impacts our ability to be our best. Our best may be exaggerated a bit, more positive or more handsome or beautiful. We want to believe we are somewhat better than we really are because it pushes us in some way to be that person. If we believe we are more negative than we really are we don’t believe we can do the things we could otherwise.
We deceive ourselves for a number of reasons. If we believe in that deception does it help us live a better life?
What do you think of yourself? Who do you think you really are? Are you the person you want to be? Are you the person that others see? What is your answer?
