    Interesting post. -I agree it’s so important to know what type of person we are and to recognise our moods etc so we know when to take time out and when to ask for help.

    No one knows us better than ourselves. It is in this knowledge, this awareness of ourselves that we are able to be at our best. I do my best to avoid trying to “blend in and be someone else.” That for me is counter productive.

    I think knowing yourself comes more with age but it is really important to really know yourself rather than pretending to be someone else.

    It takes reflection and awareness to truly know who we are and what we need out of life. I enjoyed your post.
