Understaning Yourself Is Very Important

More than anything, a person is happiest when they can be themselves, without reservations, judgements, or ridicule. Being who we really are allows us to make the right connections in life, and add value and benefit from these connections.

If the skilled position of a football player is that of a defensive back, they will more than likely have the biggest impact on their team from playing in that position. If they are placed in another position such as quarterback or offensive lineman, their performance and overall impact will not be as favorable. If an elephant is dropped in the middle of the ocean, the chances of it surviving are much less of it simply dwelling in its natural habit.

In both situations, each are set up to fail because their strengths aren’t used appropriately, and their disposition might invoke discomfort, resulting in a poor performance. Even more, when we don’t understand who we are, and what our role and purpose in life is, it can be very difficult to do our best.

Being the best, “you” is very important. However, to be our best, we must be ourselves first. We must learn who we are and understand our value. We must also recognize our flaws and look over them carefully. You may be surprised to learn that your flaws are actually your greatest asset. When we can be ourselves, our contributions to this world are greater and more meaningful. We should never exist only to please someone else, especially if that means depriving ourselves from the things that make us who we really are.

In order to be the best versions of ourselves, we must first understand who we are. That starts with loving ourselves first. God has given everyone the best examples of love, simply by loving all of us unconditionally. If we love and follow God, that same love must dwell within our hearts. Love doesn’t force you to adjust and conform, it simply asks that you open your heart and share it as well.
