Pearl Bailey once said, "There's a period of life when we swallow a knowledge of ourselves and it becomes either good or sour inside." Self knowledge is always a good thing. No one else possesses the capacity to know us well as we can know ourselves. It is in the awareness of ourselves that our strength lies. And awareness of every aspect of ourselves allows us to become who we are.
Often our rejection of various aspects of ourselves keeps us stuck. Some of us quite readily see those aspects of our personalities that we perceive as negative and just as readily beat ourselves up for those characteristics. Others go to the other extreme and sugar-coat our self perceptions, putting all blame and responsibility for who we have become on anyone and anything outside of ourselves. Neither approach is helpful or growth-producing. It is only in our self awareness that we can taste the bitter and the sweet and grow into who we can be.
