Getting To Know and Understand Yourself
One of the biggest challenges in life can be to understand why we do the things we do. It can take a lot of soul searching to get at the deep feelings people have and to understand the actions they take on a conscious and unconscious level. It's important to listen to criticism and use it to their advantage to change or correct their behaviors. First, people must recognize that they may be projecting their feelings towards others in a negative way. Then they must be willing to change their behavior not only because of others peoples reactions but because they want to change. It takes courage to learn where the feelings are coming from and then to actually change their behaviors. Of course, this may be a difficult task to accomplish on your own. This is when psychotherapy would be beneficial to assist and guide the person through the process of getting to know and understand themselves.
