How do you see yourself?
When you really stop and think about it, how would you describe yourself to someone who’s never met you before?
Make a cuppa, find somewhere quiet, and have a think about who you really are. It’s not often, if ever, that we actually think about ourselves in a way that others might, and it could be very enlightening.
Be warned, it could also be a little confronting.
I don’t know why, but the other day I started thinking about how I would describe myself. I can’t even think what triggered that train of thought, but it lead me down a rabbit hole, and gave me a bit of a shake up. Questioning myself is one of my favourite getting-lost-in-my-own-head pastimes, but this time I tried to stay on track, and just think about me.
Some of the stuff I came up with was kind of random, and I won’t go into boring details. But I do love that I sort of stepped outside myself and looked in at what I’m made up of.
I know dwelling on things is not so great, if it’s all about negatives. But what if you happen upon some things that you really wouldn’t mind changing? Surely that could be working towards positive?
I also think that how we see ourselves can influence the image we present to others. If you feel confident and happy with yourself, chances are, you’ll come across like that to whoever you meet. The same goes for feeling bad about yourself and whatever you do. Then you’ll probably not be the most fun person to be around.
Sometimes it’s just not possible to be all super-duper, but a little positive self talk may set you on the right path. I know every now and then I have to give myself a mental slap and get back on track, and it probably doesn’t do me any harm.
Are you happy with how you see yourself?
