Do you understand yourself?

Do you know what you're really thinking? Do you really know about your psychology and how you think deep down? I always think about this, and why I do certain things, and what makes me really tick. Sometimes I do things and feel things out of jealousy or envy that I never really bothered to notice. It's weird how we work!

I tend to second guess every situation , after I do it. It will be a week later and I will end up thinking about past events , then wham . I am like ,why did I do that , that's awful, or should I have or I could have . I do wonder sometimes why I am the way I am . Many of my family members are completely opposite from me, yet grew up the same way . I really think its how we deal with issues as an individual. It is really weird huh!

Me too! I am exactly like that. I like to think of myself as an enigma of mystery and weirdness. Sometimes I just want everyone else to be normal so I can be the strangest, most outrageous, most misunderstood person in the universe, and sometimes I curse everyone for being so normal!

I tend to do things like that too . Like I end up asking someone why do you have to be so perfect and in the now . I guess I get kinda of jealous of those people because it seems everyone just gets them or something . I feel out of the loop .. I am glad I am not alone :P

When I was 20 I would have answered a definite YES! I know myself very well, have a real handle on my motives and weaknesses. When I was 30 I would have said, well, I used to think I knew myself, but I really didn't, but now I truly do. And again at 40, and 50, and 60 and probably again at 70, if I get there. I don't think any of us can really know all about ourselves, but I also don't think that's a problem as long as we keep TRYING to understand ourselves. This is one of those cases when the journey is more important than the destination. Lash

Hi Sheepie, I think is quite normal we think and sometimes have those feelings but we do control it because as soon as those thoughts comes into our heads, its gone and yes it is weird how our minds works, now and again you have to have a good talking to yourself. Hugs. Tamara

it is normal for us to have some regrets and questions to our self because we are not created to become perfect. i do also have doubts to my self for the attitude and ability that i have. we always want to have agood impression to others but we tend to receive a bad impact on us.

Yeah, well people are a little too complicated. I have moments when I have no idea about what's happening to me, or why I reacted the way I did at a certain point. There are times when I start to analyze and times when this own analisation doesn't get me anywhere. It's hard to realize that you're not understanding something that should be so clear: our own feelings, emotions or thoughts. There are people who can this for us though. Sometimes they are simple friends of ours, sometimes people who never know us at all. It's strange and fantastic at the same time. All in all, humans are complicated.

Hi there Sheepie! I do not understand myself at all times. I think that is human nature. There are things about me that I can't fully understand. I consider some things about me as weird. But the mystery about most of the things about myself is what makes my life exciting. I don't think life will be as exciting if I already know everything about myself. It would be better if I discover something new about me from time to time.

I am very much my own person, I don't know myself completely but I don't think anyone, really can. Many years ago I have serve depression so I had counselling to help me and it was there that I learnt about myself better and came to understand why I reacted a certain way, where before that I'd always questioned why I did.
