Find Your Own Sense Of Value
Yes, we all want the same things but how we feel, express and process those same needs is unique to each one of us. That’s why it’s so important we get to know ourselves.
We know we want to be happy. But, what are the things that make YOU or ME truly happy? We want to be safe. But how do YOU or I feel safe. We are the sum of many parts.
When we start to grow up, and create our unique way to process experience, in the process we also take on some of our family and environment’s set of values. Once we become adults our true selves sometimes become buried under layers of adopted concepts picked up along the way. But, as these values are not truly ours, they create conflict in our lives. Let me give you an example: If money has never been a primary drive for you but artistic and socials ideas have, than you can’t judge your success by monetary terms. Such judgment is not in keeping with YOUR true sense of value. Your ideas, experiences, development as a person, are your achievements and your sense of value. But, if we are confused we may judge our lives by monetary achievements. Not only an incorrect way to look at our lives but also unfair. That’s why it is so important to really understand ourselves and become familiar with our own sense of values.
Next time you feel like reproaching your own self ask deep within if it is you or someone else’s ideas doing the beating.
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself. – Alan Alda
