We get closer to experiencing radical happiness when we commit to building an outrageously intimate relationship with ourselves.
This means we have to invest some time into getting to know who we are, along with the why that motivates our actions. At any age, we likely have lots to discover.
Getting to know ourselves starts with questions as basic as these. Next time you are about to drink a cup of coffee, ask yourself, “Why?” Same goes for a drink of alcohol. Or taking a walk…or not taking one: Why? Getting angry…why? Feeling hungry an hour after you ate a big dinner…why? Choosing neutral lipstick instead of red…why? Calling a friend or not…why? Turning on the TV…why? Feeling insecure…why? Feeling excited…why? Feeling proud…why? Feeling afraid…why? Feeling loved…why?
Your questions and answers are yours alone and they’re all good. There’s no need to announce them to others — unless the self-discovery fascinates you or might help advance your other important relationships. The point is that each time we ask ourselves why we make certain choices — we move unconscious behaviors to conscious awareness. This helps us get closer to ourselves and builds a greater sense of self-acceptance. It also improves our general understanding and acceptance of others in the process as well.
