Three signs that we may be ignorant of ourselves:
- Being alone without TV, music, laptop, tablet, or phone makes us crazy
- We are very critical of others
- We don’t take criticism or instruction well
Happiness, gravitas, and generosity often begin with the painful disillusionment of looking directly and intensely into the face of our own faults…and deciding to love ourselves anyway.
Once done, the fight for sustained sanity and joy becomes much easier.
(And we are much easier to be around during the holidays.)
