On developing a healthy sense of self




What is the sense of self?


1. It is the way a person views their traits, values, beliefs, and purpose in the world

·     Knowing your goals, values, and ideals may be equated for a strong sense of self

·     We are done understanding what is self-worth now we go to understanding ourselves and how we perceive our totality as a person



Why is important to develop a healthy sense of self? 



2. It grounds us the truths of who we are and what we live for 

·     Having a healthy and strong sense of self keeps strong enough to face adversities better without leaving us to question the very purposes of our lives.  



3. Allows us to set healthy boundaries from people, things, and situations that disrupt our inner peace

·     It helps us determine the destructive things and habits that we have and how to steer away from them. 


4. Opens our mind and hearts to change that we need to undergo

·     It allows us to be open and accept criticisms and corrections about ourselves without being offended.

·     It helps us also understand that other people struggle with their sense of self but are working through it. 

·     Allows us to see ourselves as works in progress that goes through constant cycles of metamorphosis 


A reminder that you are the director of your own life



·     Take the reins on your own life, silence the voices that tell you otherwise. Silence those voices that tell you that you’ll never amount to anything or what you do is inferior compared to what they are doing. 



·     You get to choose how you live your life, how you want to be remembered, and how you want to be in general. Hopefully, this is all in good light and under the limitations of humanity. 


·     YOU DO YOU
