"The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance."
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves! Understanding ourselves deeply is the only permanent solution to all our problems. It’s the beginning of wisdom. The better we know ourselves, the better our relationship is with the rest of the world and the more patience we have for what we see in others!
Self-awareness helps us to heal ourselves and our relationship with others! It helps us to understand why we feel what we feel and identify the triggers and control how we respond to them. When we know how our feelings work and what makes us react, we start noticing and caring about how others might feel too. This caring attitude makes our relationships stronger and more peaceful. It's like making friends with our own feelings and then being able to understand different feelings in other people. This also makes our connections with others more special and happy, making life better for everyone involved. When we are aware of ourselves and our emotions, we are not distracted by ruminations on the past or worries about the future, but centered in the here and now, living a more mindful life. Letting go of our past struggles, mistakes, setbacks, and fears, always helps us make room for something new and beautiful to emerge. It makes us stronger and is the key to our healing, growth, and development throughout every aspect of life.
You can take back control of your life and your relationship. The realization that everything is within our power and our power is within us, does wonders!
