This is one of the prime reasons why practicing self healing is extremely crucial.
An individual's best friend is its own self. No other person can know us as better as we ourselves can. All it takes is some thorough introspection on an individual's part. The only way we can know about ourselves is by accepting the responsibility for our actions, thoughts and words. It can be of great beneficence for a person to try to know himself. A thorough introspection allows a person to know his stand in life, his aspirations and goals in life. It can act as his key guide to achieve perfect blend of morality, happiness, peace and satisfaction.
Self awareness is an integral part of the process of introspection. Only when we are aware of our faults, strengths, weaknesses, mental blocks, can we thoroughly access them and their root cause. But, it is not sufficient to be aware of our individual self. An individual needs to work upon it too. This process of taking charge of our lives, improving our course of actions is known as self-healing.
Self healing is a very diverse process. And, all it requires is some initiative on the part of a person. Any individual, who is utterly ignorant of his own self, cannot get rid of his bad habits and tread on the path of healthy living. Self healing includes getting in touch with ourselves. Every individual is unique in his own way. One should consider spending some time with himself in order to understand his own self and his relationship with the world in a better manner.
Self healing requires a lot of patience, self tolerance and a positive outlook towards life. An optimistic attitude acts as a sure shot tool for anyone trying to break free from the drudgery of mundane life and redirecting his energy for self development.
Each and every side in life has two aspects to it- positive and negative. A person must work towards focusing his energy on the positive side of any issue. It helps a person to uplift his spirit, agreeable and joyous. Moreover, everyone prefers a person with an optimistic attitude towards life. We all want to please others and the knowledge of the fact that people prefer our company because of our positive attitude boosts our spirits in itself.
Moreover, keeping our negative emotions bundled up can prove catastrophic to one's emotional and mental health. Most of the people harbor negative feelings against several social issues, which are never discussed openly and are considered taboo. If a person is unable to find logical answers and understanding for such issues, he grows up to have mixed and disillusioned views about such matters in life. Hence, voicing our thoughts openly, developing rationale views about myriad matters in life and surrounding our mind with positive thoughts goes a long way in shaping a sound personality for ourselves.
