How to get to know yourself better

Ways To Know Who You Are

Most of us are under the impression that thinking about ourselves is equivalent to being selfish. But the truth is that being compassionate is not just about taking care of others but also of our own self. Often cases are observed when dedicated mothers spoil their own health just to take care of their children and family. I have seen some women who never think about themselves. Whenever they think, their priority is family members. Even when it comes to health, they keep themselves in the last category. I have seen some miserable examples of my own relatives. Being responsible and emotional is the main problem of womankind from the very beginning. Gradually, it becomes her habit and slowly, she starts to ignore herself among her responsibilities and forgets about her choices and dreams.

It is very important to find out who you are and what you want in life. And what must follow is the quest to fulfil those needs and taking care of yourself along with your other responsibilities. All this is very easy to put into words but can be rather tricky to explore and practice in actual life. However, a few pointers can prove helpful.

Surround yourself with good people

Cut out the toxic people in your life and surround yourself with those you feel good with. This is of course highly subjective for everyone but you are a better judge of yourself. The people around you influence you greatly so it is better to have such people around who can drive you towards positivity and goodness. Your company also determines the kind of person you yourself are.

Spend some time alone

We don’t realize how much others influence our personality with time. As a result, many of us remain unaware of our true selves. But spending some quality time alone can bring back what you really are and make you realize what had been missing all this while. If you discover something unique about yourself, this will fill you with a new confidence and rigour. Watch your favourite movies, listen to your favourite songs or take a short solo trip.

Analyze your actions and reactions

Sometimes all you need to do is to sit back and think what made you happy or upset at a certain point of time. This will help you realize certain aspects about yourself and your perspectives. This will also help in pointing out what all you are most sensitive about and you will know yourself better.

Maintain a Journal

Keeping a diary or journal is a good habit. Not only does it help in calming the mind, venting out emotions but is also a reflection of your personality. Looking back at those entries over the years will reveal your true self and preserve your emotions and thoughts. It is a simple and important ritual one can always follow.

Follow your dreams

In a bid to care for others around us, we often neglect our own dreams and passions. Our dreams enable us to discover ourselves and reflect our nature. Fulfilling them makes us happy and satisfied. Think about what you love to do and do it more than before.

Jeans and a white t-shirt have been staples in every girl’s closet. It’s a combo which is unbeatable. Whenever I find nothing else to wear, my first choice is a pair of blue denim jeans and a comfy white tee. This is a combination that will never be out of date. It’s really amazing that whenever I wear this combo, it always looks different and unique, never failing! 
In today’s outfit, I repeat this combo again and I think, it looks fresh and new.
I have worn my new denim jeans which I bought recently from Myntra. This jeans is very comfortable, soft and fit. I paired it with a new off-white T-shirt. This tee is light and airy with a soft fabric. I wanted to keep this look casual so finished it with a small bag, black heels and minimal makeup. Hope you like it!

I’m wearing:

Jeans – Roadster

Tee – H&M

Heels- DressBerry

Bag – Stalkbuylove

    I do agree with everything your wrote. Us ladies are exactly like that, most of us, most of the time. We think about how to make everyone happy constantly and we forget that we need to make ourselves happy as well. We want to take care of everyone, and in doing so, we forget to take care of ourselves. As women, we can be so hard on ourselves! Always putting the needs of others first, always forgetting about ourselves. But we can’t take care of others if we don’t take care of ourselves first. If we ignore our heath, we will suffer from health issues later…and when we’re sick we can’t take care of anyone. So, it is important to take care of ourselves. The funny thing is that often others wouldn’t mind if we took some time for ourselves. Those around us often understand that it is something that is necessarily…it is often ourselves that are the hardest judge! We can expect others to read our mind, we need to find time for ourselves to recharge and get better.

    I love this basic outfit. White tee and denim is such a timeless combo. Nothing is more basic than a pair of blue jeans, and it’s amazing how many ways there are to style jeans. I like how you styled yours with those black pumps. You look great.

    I wish you a visit to in-laws and parents! I will perhaps go to visit my parents next week.

      Agree with you Ivana, even I have been so careless for myself earlier especially for health. But after my husbandโ€™s illness i realized how important our health is. Now iโ€™m trying to take care of my health also. Because now I have admitted that i could take care of my family when i take care of myself.
      Thanks a lot for your sweet comment. By the way, glad to know about your visit to your parents. Wish you a happy journey <3

    You make some fabulous points here, Rakhshanda!! My friend always talks about a gratitude journal, and I think it’s the best idea ever. We have so much to be thankful for and taking care of ourselves is very important. In fact, my favorite saying is “you can’t pour from an empty cup!”

    Love your inspirational post this morning! We do need to be compassionate and loving with ourselves because if we aren’t, we can’t extend that compassion to others. I adore your tee!

    This was such an interesting and honest post, brilliant read! I agree many people (women, in particular) put people before themselves and end up losing themselves in the process – such wise words! Also, love your advice to cut out all toxic people from life ๐Ÿ™‚
