Understanding Yourself

Five Ways to Understanding Yourself

There has been a lot of science regarding understanding one's self. From biological science to social science, the concept has enticed a number of philosophers across time. And it has both eluded and enlightened them.

What’s the point of knowing yourself? What happens next if you do? Will you change for the better?

There has been a lot of science regarding understanding one’s self. From biological science to social science, the concept has enticed a number of philosophers across time. And it has both eluded and enlightened them.

Here are five ways for us to understand ourselves better:

I. Reflect.


Reflect. You’ve probably been self-aware for years now, but you would need physical data to go with some basic analysis. Write a blog or a journal. Writing helps record changes within you that go unnoticed. The small details matter. Having actual evidence helps in justifying the change you undergo. As they say, the best person to notice changes within you is yourself. So start writing.

II. Communicate.


Not all of us have the time to record every slightest detail that happens. Heck, we can’t even be bothered to stop and jot notes even on our daily commute. Talk to a friend. Have him/her analyze you. That friend doesn’t have to be present in every big event in your life. It is actually encouraged that you talk to someone who you haven’t seen for a while. It makes analyzing you more deliberate and obvious (for their part).

III. Know Your Likes and Dislikes.

Likes and Dislikes

Scrutinize your current preference. Why do you suddenly like listening to songs by Silverchair or Adelle? When did you stop drinking milk? Being aware of the choices you make and its repercussions make for a very good case study. Every likes and dislikes are little puzzles that define who we are. Start building that puzzle.

IV. Take Risks.

take risks

We will never know our full potential, or even limits if we won’t take risks. Taking a gamble provides us with an idea of our threshold. This threshold will be our savepoint. We must continually try to take risks to know ourselves better. You wouldn’t realize how much you will actually like that spicy chicken biriyani or that awful smelling shawarma unless you try.

V. Have a goal.

Have a goal

Setting a goal will allow you to have a definite direction. It may come as a career goal or even a daily goal you can pursue on short periods of time. Start working on that novel you keep neglecting. Be a bae and continue studying the Korean language. Setting a clear objective will give us focus – focus you will need to analyze what is it you really want and who you really want to be.

You can never fully define who you are even when you are 80, much more when you are 18. But having an idea of who you are, what you can become and who you must be will provide you time and space to focus on what truly matters to you.



it's no fun writing pretty.

    2. be a mistake.
    some people said that they know all and they are perfect but for me its a bad idea and it sadden me because being a perfect person is like you dont need to gain information and grow as a person because you are perfect right? but if we change our mindset and even we know somethings we just need to be humble and like you are commiting mistake not literally hehe, because if you stay humble and be a mistake to them there is a chance that they will fill you an information or a things that they not saw into you and because of that you will grow and grow.

Once you already recognized yourSELF, this is the time that challenges will appear and your skills and talents and even personality will help you to unveil what excites you as yourself. You just need to enhance it in order to recognize not by others but yourself.

  14. 1.) Think outside the box, your perception for one thing can be reflected on you as an individual.

    2.) Learn to live the life that you have, not anyone else’ around.

    3.) Move up, grow up, and cheer up, no matter what brings you down.

    4.) There’s no such thing as accurate, as well as perfect but practice the good values and focus on consistency rather than perfection.

    5.) Dare to do, to be something different, unique, doesn’t mean isolating yourself from the usual routines of the crowd. They might not be able to understand but it’s not your responsibility, because you’re concern is molding yourself for who you are, not what they ideally perceive.

  15. 1. Contemplate about the things happened, the events that happened in the past whether it’s a good or bad. Think of the things you’ve done and understand the pros and cons of that decision. There’s always a reason why certain things happened. Sometimes jotting down ideas, events and memories are helping us realize our changes and the things we learned. It’s not bad to look back especially when those decisions made us a better person.
    2. Interact, exchange conversation with others. It doesn’t really need a lot of people sometimes one is enough. Someone who’ll listen. It’s helpful if we have someone to talk to because we will have time to think of the things we are doing.
    3. Know yourself, there’s no one who better know us better than ourselves. We are the one who’ll identify which we want and which we don’t. Our choices and the paths we choose are the building blocks to our identity and our-self.
    4. Venture life’s challenges, we will never know what will happen. We should not be afraid to try something new because we will always learn from such things. Just like in the saying, “Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.” ― Roy T. Bennett. It’s true we will never know something unless we try.
    5. Have purpose. If we will know the purpose of the things we will do it will be easier for us to continue the path we’ve chosen. It will provide us excitement that will motivate us to work harder. It’s really hard to do things we don’t want so if we know our objective, we will know the actions that we must do in able to achieve our goal.

    2. Live your life to rhe fullest. When you found your Happiness you will found your purpose.

    4. Follow your dreams.
    5. Explore. the earth is big, it is good to know new things. By exploring the world you are also exploring yourself.

  17. 1. Be the best version of yourself. In Anythjng that you do you will judge so be true to yourself. You will never know that maybe someone the bus or you’re riding someone adore you, maybe in the mall someones deeply inlove with you, maybe in the restaurant someones wants to be you. You will never know. Accept your flaws, you only see yourself ugly when you look at the mirror, you didn’t see yourself when your favorite food is coming , when you smile in a little things, you didn’t see how you laugh or how your eyes shines when your happy, but the people around you can see it and they love it that’s why always be yourself. Always be the best version of you.

  18. 1.follow you dreams
    2.do what you love
    3.accept failures
    4.stay positive
    5.be happy all the time

  19. 1. Let yourself engage in deep thinking or sudden self-realization. It can happen while you are taking a shower, riding a bus, or when you are still awake in the middle of the night, just staring at the ceiling. All the important points in life will suddenly pops up whether it is good or bad. At these moments we should learn to evaluate the events even if it contain the negative aspects we want to forget. Sometimes people tend to avoid thinking deeply and engage their selves in these sudden realization just because it involves their bad memories. But not facing these issues will never help you grow. Those points in your life is an important part of you and when you learned to analyze why these things happen, you will understand then, yourself better.
    2. Pursue your passion and start creating. Whether you are a visual artist, a writer, a composer, a photographer, etc. just create and express yourself. Those paintings you make when you are happy, brokenhearted, depressed, stressed, afraid and whatever situation you are going through will surely reflect on those art. Those masterpieces is a reflection of you. It contains the piece of you (your memories, emotions etc.), therefore, upon seeing your own artwork, you will slowly understand who you are.
    3. Let failures, problems and pain come unto your life. These things will help you see your weaknesses and as well as your strengths. In those crucial moments you will realize your limits and upon solving it you’ll also discover your potentials; that the ‘you’ that you know all throughout your life can be greater than what you think.
    4. Engage in deep conversations. Sometimes talking to someone regarding deep topics like emotional, political, philosophical and such talks make you think critical. As you defend and exchange views with that person, you’ll slowly realized your difference with him/her. You might agree with certain views but you can see that your way of reasoning is still distinct than him/her. It will make you understand your beliefs and the way yourself think.
    5. Learn to accept your imperfections and be your Real self. Once you find who you really are (the ‘you’ which is not blinded with your ideal image), you will definitely understand yourself better.

  20. 1. Dream. To know what you want, and know what you need contributes much into understanding yourself. When we delve into the deepest part of ourselves it is only then that we recognize our wants in life. Knowing our wants helps us determine our passions, desires and goals which will eventually lead us into striving in the present for the future. On the other hand, our needs balances us in every aspect for our own necessity.

    2. List self-affirmations. One of the things I have done countless times before is to answer questions that would develop my views. Recognizing our existence through knowing our perspective in personal, political, and sociological ideologies could help us technically not only in knowing ourselves but also with our own beliefs.

    3. Live in the present. A reminder for every individual is to always focus on the current happenings rather than always bringing back the melancholy of yesterday. When we are faced with dilemmas in a present situation, we do not always have to resort in looking back of what was already done, remember that you are different from what you are right now and what you are ten years ago.

    4. Learn various things. Each of us have unlimited learning capacity. In order to explore who we are, we have to explore first every new and unfamiliar things. When we are exposed through learning, our mind is always open in discovering differences. Some of us learn better through experience and others through reading, all of us varies in ways we learn best.

    5. Do what makes you happy. Happiness is not always around, it is hard to maintain especially when we are down in the dumps. However, it is essential in understanding ourselves because our inner self is always the key to happiness. When we do things in our own pleasure, it shows who we really are.

  21. My own version of ways to better understand yourself:

    1. Self-discovery. Seek the potentials buried within you. Sometimes, being afraid to do things that you don’t usually do locks you up in a box that hinders you from growing and learning things that will make you realize your full potential.

    2. Reflect on yourself. Reflecting can never disappoint you. It will help you in assessing yourself and knowing what and who you have become over time.

    3. Be Brave. Knowing our inner selves is hard because sometimes, we are afraid that we might disappoint ourselves. However, knowing your inner self will actually help you to improve your flaws and recognize your imperfections. Learn how to take risks because through this, you will grow.

    4. Appreciate little things. Even the smallest thing matters. Giving yourself an affirmation will boost yourself to do better. Commending your little good actions can make a change on how you view things. And with that, you will learn how you to appreciate the worth of yourself.

    5. Change is constant. It will never stop. Embrace every changes you had. But, don’t force yourself to suddenly change because, change does not come easily. It is a process, and must gradually be accepted.

  22. 1. Know your Limitations.
    2. know what makes you happy.
    3. You should trust yourself.
    4. Be Inspired.
    5. Be open.

  23. 1. Find what really makes you happy.
    2. Let go the past and embrace the present.
    3. Set your goals to become a successful one.
    4. Love and reflect your self.
    5. No pain, no gain. More pain, more possible positive outcomes.

  24. 1. Comprehend your strengs and weaknesses
    2. Communicate and make some memories with your love ones
    3. Explore and take risks in life
    4. Know and love who you really are
    5. Be a dreamer, aim a goal

    Here are my own five ways to understand myself better:

  27. 1. Be authentic.
    Remove all the doubts that’s trying to become a hindrance for being who you are and what you want to be, we must have our own version of SELF.

    2. Explore things around you.
    What you see isn’t always what you’ll be getting, because life will not always give us everything we wanted to have. Learn to explore and appreciate more things around you, we’ll never know what life has prepared for our journey. We will not always get to choose the best but learn to choose wisely.

    3. Patience, patience and Patience.
    It really takes a lot of time to know more about ourselves and to understand why some strange things happens to us even if we don’t wanted to. We always get tired easily for not getting what we want, and patience and easily identify what you are as a person. As the time passes by, everything around us change; the environment, the people around us, the atmosphere, and even ourselves changes. So we must be patient to understand ourselves in every situations and in our every decisions that we’re going to make.

    4. Learn.
    In every actions we make, decisions we take, in our everyday lives, we LEARN. To understand thyself is about learning why or how you see the world around you and how’d you learned about that sudden situation. Made a mistake? You have to learn something, and understand why such yourself made that decision. Learn how you learn.

    5. Self-love.
    How come you love everyone around you but you hated yourself? It’s you who made decisions for yourself and you don’t have to blame anybody and yourself for not doing what you want to. The first four things is important and we should apply in on ourselves to gain self-love.
    Treat yourself, make yourself a priority, make yourself happy, and you’ll know and understand what you really want to have in life, you’ll really understand what you are and who you really are.

    Five ways that I used to understand myself:

    First, I look forward to what I aspire to become.
    To know oneself is to be able to determine what are your needs and want.

    Second, I list down my strengths and weaknesses. What traits I have to keep and what to let go so that I can move on and further explore understanding myself more.

    Third, I apply the changes that I need to make and in these changes there are ups and downs. Here comes acceptance where in I understand that this is what I am. I am not the best nor am I the weakest and that both of these are not permanent.

    Fourth, adapt. I adapt to what a current situation demands. This helps me understand that not everybody can understand therefore, I look more into myself and see my real self.

    Fifth, I look back and look at the changes that I have made. Remembering why I made such decision and how I did those choices help me understand myself even more.

  59. 1. Set goals- everyone have their own set of goals that you promise to yourself that you can do it and you need to believe in yourself that you can, the only one that can achieve your goal is yourself, not someone who close to you not even your family, only yourself can achieve those goals, maybe they will motivate you to work harder and even if your down they will help you until you achieved those goals, the only words that you will say is “WORTH IT” all sacrifices is all worth it.
    2. Be honest with yourself- the best thing that you will need is being honest to yourself because every people need this, example you’re pretending that you already move on to someone but deep inside you still like his/her, because you want that everyone see you that you’re strong and happy but inside you’re broken and sad.
    3.

    4. Take a risk- everyone have their own struggles in life and how can you achieve those goals if you don’t undergo to those risks, example you entering in a relationship you will think harder because we all know that happiness or entering to a relationship yes it will be so nice and happy of being in love but you didn’t know until when those happiness will stay between the two of you, and you will know that when you enter you know that you will take responsibilities and take those heart break.
    5. Things I love- you will know what truly make you happy, anything that’s brings you joy and make you smile, like bonding with your family, friends, and attending to mass every Sunday with your family will make your inner self relief, and you also know what you don’t like.

  60. My own ways to understand myself better:

    1. Socialize.
    Staying at your comfort zone for a long time isn’t good. Being with other people aside from your old friends and encountering different kinds of personality will help you handle such in the near future and learn a lot of things you haven’t known before.

    2. Know your likes and dislikes.
    Only then will you find your true happiness.

    3. Learn from your mistakes.
    You don’t learn how to write without scratching the paper trying to write your name when you were a child. We learn after committing mistakes. When we learn how to look at the positive side of failing to do a thing, we also start growing ourselves as a person.

    4. Motivate yourself.
    You are not the only one who have problems and is having difficulties. You may watch your favorite idols and get motivated by their deep stories or simply talk with your family. Communication with your family itself will help you get motivated and keep on moving forward to be developed into a professional being.

    2. Goals : Every responsible person has some goals, things they want to achieve and do, either in their private, or in their professional life. They want to see if they can count on you in a long run, and if you can achieve your goals while helping other people to achieve theirs.
    3. Risks : How can we truly know ourselves if we don’t risks? Risk implies the chance that things might not work out the way we expect it, we can also learn from risks and those lessons may lead us on an important new path in our life. A former prof. of mine told me that ” If you don’t take risks in your life, is it a life to begin with?” with that being said I started to take calculated risks.
    4. Accept : Accept yourself above all else. Resolve to make peace with who you are so that you can start showing up for the world. The only approval you truly need is yours. I often tell myself that I wasn’t born to please people, but I was born to please myself. Why would I try to seek approval from others, I only person who truly knows me is myself. I accept my flaws and all my imperfections.
    5. Reflect : Reflection is the art of pondering on one’s virtues and faults. It is also the ability to reflect on the “here and now”, on your feelings and thoughts. This also includes reflecting on the thoughts, emotions and the feelings of others. Reflection can be a useful way to make positive changes in life as you assess and evaluate the decisions you’ve made in the past. This may require letting go of some people or ways of thinking and retaining others. Learning how to reflect on your own life, your experiences, and the lives of others can help you grow as a person and make informed choices to shape your future.
