I have heard many woman say, “I know my husband like the palm of my hand”, that’s good, but the question is: Do you know yourself?
I believe that the first step a person should take in order to change and grow spiritually is getting to know herself.
If a person does not know herself then how will she be able to work on her inner-self, her character, her habits, or actions?
A strong person is the one that knows her weaknesses, by knowing them she can fight against them. If a person is unaware of her weaknesses she cannot defeat herself. How will she fight if there is no enemy to defeat? When she doesn’t defeat herself, she becomes slave of her mistakes. Her defects will continue to rule over her, no matter how many defects she may have it doesn’t mean that she should accept them and do nothing about it.
Therefore my friends, make it a task to know yourself, don’t be afraid of what you will discover, be afraid of not knowing yourself and giving continuation to the same mistakes and displeasing God in your interior.
Perhaps you will not like what you dig up about yourself but that is part of:
-Discovering who you are
-Accepting it, in other words not ignoring the problem
-Work to change and defeat those weaknesses
So? Will we do this?
