The more self-awareness you have, the less you complicate your life. Many people devote an enormous amount of time and energy to cover up some lie, ignore some unpleasant thing they did to someone, or avoid dealing with some difficult issue in their past. What they may not realize is that, instead of making their lives easier, they're adding more challenges than there need to be. It takes so much effort to complicate your life that why not try something that will make you happier instead? Here are some tips to simplify your life:
- Understand why you do the things you do.
- Tell the truth.
- Behave kindly.
- Look for ways to make life easier for yourself and others.
- Have compassion for other people.
- Love yourself.
- Heal your hurts.
- Live the life you know you have inside you.
- Show the world your true self.
When you think, feel and behave in ways that reflect the person you are deep inside, you don't have to worry about putting on a mask or doing things that make your life more complicated. Building self-awareness means taking the time to examine the things that don't help you succeed and replacing them with positive alternatives. What will you do to simplify your life?
