Spend time with yourself and get to know who you are:
how your moods swings, what rocks you, what makes you dance, what makes you sing, how your body reacts to certain moods and thoughts, how well you absorb stress, how you think and how you perceive life, what are your personal values, what are your beliefs, and how well you can adapt to change which you have no control over, how responsible you are with your belongings and how well you can take care of others’ belongings, how slow or quick you are to anger, how big or small your heart is, how good or bad you handle bad news and surprises.
Well, these are a few of the many things you need to identify about yourself.
Why do we need to know these things as women?
We have been created with an extra touch of emotions. So, if we do not know about ourselves and what makes us react, and how we react, we will find ourselves in a mess of emotions drowning and not knowing the difference of what we are feeling and what we really are. Since we are not wired to be more of a rational being, when emotions overwhelm us, we will be restricted in using our common sense and make decisions in haste – which we will regret later, in life.
So, its best to keep a check of your emotions as much as you can.
As for me, I think I now know a little bit more of myself that I did 5 years ago and that has helped me to identify the triggers that only upsets me but those that rejuvenates my soul: somewhat of an early warning system is now in place within me, with indicators which will help me to be better prepared for whatever challenges I am faced with.
