4 Reasons for Understanding Your True Self

 Most people will tell you that they understand who they are – but do they really? We often confuse our sense of identity with things like education, social background profession and so on. While these are important aspects of your personality and may even have shaped it, they don't reveal who you truly are.

If you sometimes feel overwhelmed and wonder what life is all about, you likely don't know who you really are. It's therefore vital to uncover and identify your true self. Here are 4 powerful reasons for understanding – and accepting your true self:

1. You have purpose

Understanding who you are means that you know what you want to achieve in life and more importantly, how you're going to achieve that. It shapes your purpose so that you know what you want and what brings your life meaning.
Knowing yourself means knowing your passions, desires and goals. This also keeps your purpose clear and strong and prevents you from getting derailed or sidetracked.
Gaining purpose and intention also allows you to find ways to grow your personal strengths and improve your shortcomings – by never trying to be someone else.

2. You stay true to yourself

Knowing who you are means knowing what you stand for. It allows you to firmly adhere to a core set of values and principles that guide you in all that you do. Staying firm and grounded in your beliefs allow you to stay true to yourself, which other strengthens your self-belief and sense of identity.
Always remember that your core values are part and parcel of who you are. Identifying them clearly enables you to identify yourself and enhances your self-worth when you display them consistently. Not being ashamed to display and stand up for your values also strengthens your integrity and earns you respect, further enhancing your pride in who you are.

3. You build better relationships

Understanding who you are and being true to yourself allows you to make better relationship choices. You're able to surround yourself with people who love and accept you for who you are.
Strong healthy relationships are vital for enhancing your emotional security and further grounding you in your sense of self.

4. You enjoy life

Knowing who you are also fostering your spiritual and mental well-being.
Because you're self-accepting, true to yourself and confident in your capabilities, your positivity and confidence soar. This positive outlook fosters many personal strengths like tolerance, forgiveness, compassion and resilience.
These wonderful traits also include gratitude, and allow you to appreciate the blessings and abundance in your life. In a nutshell, life becomes enriching, meaningful and more enjoyable.   


These are just several reasons why you should reconsider whether you know who you truly are. This is especially true if you often find yourself feeling lost or disillusioned with life. This is a sign that you've lost your sense of self.

You owe it to yourself to discover your greatness and purpose and to be the best you can be in all that you do. Understanding who, you really are is the key to finding that greatness and pursuing greater and more meaningful possibilities.
