Discover who you are

Self-discovery is essential for self-acceptance:

  • What gives you purpose: What are you passionate about? What is something that you could picture doing for the rest of your life?
  • Learn about your values and beliefs: Do you rely on honesty and integrity to live your life? What type of community do you want to build or belong to?
  • Track your day-to-day: What are some things that you like to do? What are some habits that you have cultivated, healthy or otherwise? What are your dreams?

Self-awareness and introspection

Self-awareness = awareness of your thoughts. And when you’re self-aware, you automatically learn more about who you are—which is called self-knowledge. But it all starts with being aware. No awareness = No knowledge.
