When we move through life we go through many different transformations which is a good thing. However, if we really want to become the best version of ourselves we have to get to know ourselves in all possible ways.

There are a lot of different ways in which you can work to get to know yourself better and what works for some people might not work the best for you. You have to go through a lot of trial and error in this sense. Personally, meditation is the best means for me when it comes to really uncovering things about myself.

That all having been said, increasing your self-awareness isn’t as complicated as you might assume it is. Journaling can help tremendously with it and reflecting properly will really put a lot of things into perspective. If you’re currently struggling with self-esteem issues and unable to really understand why the people around you react to you in the ways they do becoming more self-aware can seriously help.

Reach Out wrote as follows in regards to self-awareness and what it is:

Self-awareness is really just about being aware and confident of who you are. It can relate to knowing your own values, beliefs, personal preferences, and tendencies.

You know how famous people always say, ‘Stay true to yourself’? This is really important advice, but it’s not easy to stay true to yourself if you don’t know who you are. By becoming self-aware and understanding your strengths and limitations, you open up opportunities that just aren’t available otherwise. You’re also able to have more honest and genuine relationships because the people that you’re attracted to will be attracted to you for who you actually are.

The more you know yourself the more you will be able to accept the world around you. Growth is not possible if you’re unaware of who you are as a person. While most people assume they already know themselves properly, the truth is most of us don’t. Coming to terms with that makes a huge difference in how the future plays out.

If you’re stuck in your life and unable to really figure things out, becoming more self-aware is the way to go. The transformations to come within your life are going to be great and through working to listen to yourself better you’re going to become far more capable than you’ve ever been.
