One of the most important elements of getting to know yourself is the idea of not giving up. A lot of people embark on a self-awareness journey only to find that it's more difficult than they anticipated. It's hard to create change in your life because modifying your behavior requires long-term commitment and practice. It's not a quick fix. The key to gradually building self-awareness is to keep trying even when you think it's not making a difference.
There will be plenty of times when you feel you're treading water but you'll actually be making progress. Stick with it, don't give up, and you'll eventually see the results. You're worth it.
