Hi friends, do you think that you understand yourself completely, do you think you are aware of your strengths and weakness. Do you work on removing the negatives out of you and improvise the talent that you possess or you are living life as it going without you taking any efforts to change something about your own self.

I think that I know myself quite well. I am not aware of all my strengths and all my weaknesses, but when I look at my life can see how some of my strengths have helped me and how some of my weaknesses have made things difficult for me. For years it has been a goal for me to change the things that I see as my weaknesses for instanse my shyness. I have tried to changed it in lots of different ways, and I became very frustrated when it didn't work, and when I kept running into the same kinds of problems. In a way I am grateful that it hasn't been easy, because I feel that I have learned a lot from the process. When I talk to another people I keep discovering new things about myself. Sometimes I think that I know myself really well and that I know my reactions, but that isn't always the case. I like to challenge myself and try to do some of the things that I am afraid of, but there are also things about myslef that I don't want to change and things that I have learned to accept.

I think as we go older we may able to know ourselves, our positive and negative attitude, our likes and dislikes as well as our strength and weaknesses. Some of us even knowing the weaknesses will not be willing to change because it would be hard to change what we used to.

Many people might disagree with me, but I know everything about myself. Yes, I have discovered my strengths and weaknesses. I have the wisdom of many people older than me, and proud to say it. Learning about yourself is a long path in your life.

I like the word you use, Improvise. I don't understand myself completely. I am changing and working on changing myself. I am not aware of my strengths and weaknesses. I'm kind of clouded and in a stupor there. Though I am aware to an extent. I like piano, writing. A weakness I have is to lose weight. I am making some efforts. But I had to get away from the notion that my life had to be a certain way, in order to make changes. I was so worried that I had to have a job, even though I am disabled. And I would eat because I felt guilty. I felt guilty that I love to write, even though I am disabled. But life doesn't have to be a certain way. The life of a full time writer is drastically different from the life of a fast food worker who works two jobs! So know your limitations and who you are. This will help you recognize your true self, and help you to grow your true self.
