i've thought that the path to knowing yourself could result in selfishness, unmet expectations and even pride. too much self awareness can be harmful for our relationships.
but maybe not. the problem isn’t that we have too much self awareness but that we know our masks too well. we know what we have and we wear it skillfully. we are too comfortable in personality.
we work to develop a personality that we forget our original, authentic selves. and what we don’t know can hurt ourselves.
it can hurt others.
to be aware of what we lack is to draw us closer to truth and humility.
we must be conscious of the person we are, and the person we THINK we are.
