Everyone is always doing something, but we gotta ask ourselves is what we are doing important? Is it impacting our life and the life's of others in a positive way? Is it causing more bad than good, is it helping or hindering our growth? Does it bring excitement into our lives? We have to ask ourselves these questions, it is self reflection and it is necessary.You will not be able to grow and become the best version of yourself if you are not self aware and in order to be self aware you must do self reflection.
Self reflection allows you to reflect on your life and behavior. You are able to see what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong. It gives you room to improve and grow. Self reflection allows you to track your progress, it makes you see how far you have come, what you need to improve on and recognize the changes you are making or need to make. Self reflection allows you to increase self awareness, it is important to be self aware of where you are in life and where you want to be. Lack of self awareness will make it difficult to understand your emotions, goals, values and strengths. In order to be more self aware, make sure that each day you take five minutes to do self-reflection on how your day went; this will allow you to take accountability and grow as a person.
I feel that when I do self reflection I become more self aware of myself and how I interact with others. Self reflection allows me to figure out what my wants and needs are. It has allowed me to take accountability for my actions and make the changes I need to make in order to grow as a person.
