Self-knowledge: the missing subject

    Self-knowledge: the missing subject The journey of life unfolds in a path that leads us
    presents the most diverse situations; but even so, we deal with everything with the
    belief that we are fighting with a real and objectively concrete world.
    Either way, very often our beliefs about who we are and what it is like
    the world around us are really what is determining the situations
    themselves (at least in our minds). In other words, when our point of
    view is too self-centered, we can perceive reality in a distorted way, like this
    our behavior in front of it will be less functional. There self-knowledge
    is a psychological construction which, when adequately developed,
    not only allows us to understand ourselves but also facilitates a vision
    more objective than the surrounding world. Self-knowledge allows us to answer questions
    like: - Why do we think in a certain way? - How we built the filter that determines the
    our beliefs? - What is the relationship between our emotions and
    our ideas? - Why do we feel a certain emotion? - Why do we react in a certain way? In short, self-knowledge allows us to understand
    ourselves, it helps us to clarify why we do this, why we try these
    emotions and even allows us to understand how our mechanism works
    decision making. It may seem simple but it is certain that very few people own it
    a sufficiently comprehensive knowledge of oneself and this causes in
    some phases of psychotherapy need to take a long time to foment self-knowledge
    of the subject, to help the person to know and accept his self
    inner. If there really is a subject which, however, is not taught sufficiently
    in our life this is self-knowledge. Self-knowledge will make life easier for us, through
    awareness of how our psychological processes work, making us more
    practical and competent in our reality and will serve as a guide in growth
    personal. At the same time we are able to perceive ours
    emotions and our beliefs, we will be able to approach reality with an attitude
    more objective. The interesting part is that when we learn to
    knowing and accepting each other, in the same way we will develop greater trust
    in ourselves and by analyzing mistakes and weaknesses we will be able to grow
    as people. Finally, the words of
    Saint-Exupèry: “You will judge yourself. AND
    the hardest thing. It is much more difficult to judge yourself than it is to judge
    the others. If you can judge yourself well it is because you are a true sage ”.
    And I emphasize that in this case the word "wise" does not refer to intelligence
    but rather the fact that the path of personal growth is marked by
    self-knowledge and self-acceptance.
