‘Self’ Preservation: Hold On to Yourself

‘Self’ Preservation: Hold On to Yourself… Self-Awareness is not only difficult, it also requires a lot of time, effort, and it takes the implementation of new healthy habits. But, what do you do once you achieve self-awareness?

hold on to yourselfFirst of all, self-awareness grows exponentially. You will continue learning about yourself, and thus the world, for the rest of your life. Self-control and self-awareness are moment to moment battles that never end. As you battle your ego for control, know that others are fighting the same battle. However, most of us lose. In fact, most of us constantly lose this battle. But you must know… the battle within yourself is more important than the battle within your neighbor. Helping others is only helpful when we come from a place of awareness and wholeness. Otherwise, we use others struggles to fill our voids… do not ignore your void.

You Cannot Help Another Until You Have Helped Yourself
Do not abandon your own internal struggle to aid someone in theirs. Instead, lead by example. Become self-awareness in your dealings with others. If you conquer someones demons for them, they will forever depend on you and will not learn self-reliance. Prioritize yourself before electing to prioritize someone else. Do not lose yourself in relationship whether that be platonic, romantic, or business. Stay grounded in yourself and inspire self-awareness and self-control instead of instructing it. A good leader is one that remains anonymous.
“Self-compassion is simply giving the same kindness to ourselves that we would give to others ” – Christopher Germer
