In the process of getting to know ourselves we need to look straight in the eye of all the ingredients that make us who we are and that includes those dark and not so nice aspects of ourselves which we all have and of which,hopefully, we are aware (like transfats perhaps lol).
What makes someone valuable as a person is not the absence of one dark quality or another, but rather the ability to harness them, control them and guide them towards where we want them to be and not the other way around. Anger for example is a rather powerful source of raw force that can help propel us towards a positive goal if harnessed correctly when we use it to reinforce say, our will power, for example.
The same is true about the good qualities that we may have.These too need to be harnessed and controlled in order to administer the right dosage in every situation we encounter, otherwise they can hinder us as in the case of an excess generosity and understanding. I know, easier said than done, but we can still strive for it.
Getting to know our own selves can take a lifetime and sometimes even more because of the complexity of our beings. Perhaps this is why the ingredients in our hearts and souls can´t yet be listed and attached to us as if a label on products on the supermarket racks.
Very possibly the ingredient´s percentages per serving of our very varied ingredients will vary depending on the hour of day, the time of year and the circumstances around us. Ranges and averages would actually make our listings much more accurate and fair!
Embracing all aspects of ourselves and loving us just as we are, allows us to become whole instead of fractured individuals defined merely by the polarity of the moment even as we strive to reach a better version of our very selves.
Likewise, a person who truly loves us will not just love one aspect of ourselves but the entire complexity of our being – yucky bits and all – wether in SL or RL or somewhere out there in the ethers of time.
