How many of you can honestly say that you truly know who you are? If the answer is yes, then congratulations to you since you have accomplished a feat. But if the answer is no, then trust us when we say getting to know yourself is one of the best things you’ll ever do in your life. When one is aware of one’s identity, making life choices and decisions become far easier and you are able to see life from a fresh and clear perspective. To get you started on this journey of self-discovery, here are 5 ways you can go about it.
GO ON MULTIPLE DATES
Make an online dating profile and go on multiple dates. Get to know people, and in the process, you’ll get to know a bit about yourself. This will help you understand what you like or dislike in a person. Choosing your life partner will be one of the most important decisions you will make in your life and you should be aware of the qualities you want in your spouse.
GO ON A SOLO TRIP
Going on solo trips help you understand yourself like no other. You can visit your nearest town for a couple of days or go on a backpacking trip across a country of your choice. The aim is to head out alone and when unplanned situations come your way, it’s only you who will get yourself out of them.
TAKE OUR TIME FOR YOURSELF
Take out time from your everyday schedule for some alone time. Read a book, take a bath or listen to the music you like. The purpose is to shut yourself from the rest of the world, including your phone, television and even people. In your own presence, you will realize what you truly feel and think.
WRITE FOR YOURSELF
Pick a pen and start writing. You can write what you feel on a daily basis or even once a month. You can write letters to close ones or not so dear ones. Whatever you carry in your heart for other people, make time to write and express more freely. This helps clear space in your mind for new thoughts.
GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
When you start doing things you feel are way out of your limits, your comfort zone vanishes and you become unstoppable. Go sky-diving or ask your crush out on a date, do whatever it takes to make you feel uncomfortable because only then will you have a chance to be proud of yourself.
