Criticism isn’t always easy to hear. It can be difficult to hear the truth about ourselves in which we do not want to look at. It is vital if we are to change and grow in any part of our lives. One area for myself in which I need to take a look at is how my actions affect others, especially my attitude. I need to be more self-aware of how I treat others. I need to start showing more respect and love towards the people who genuinely love and care for me. It is not always easy for me to trust people, but I have to be able to learn to trust somebody. Being self-critical is also an unhealthy defect that I have created over the years. There are many areas in my life that I need to work on but often find myself being too hard on myself. I need to learn to believe that I am worthy of grace. I am noticing the importance of self-awareness and have begun to construct the foundation needed to correct these character defects that I have been blind to and struggled with over the years. It is better to surround yourself with people who are honest and have your best interest at heart in order to grow and become the best possible version of yourself.
