Give Yourself A Honest Feedback
Often, we ask others for their honest assessment of us. That’s noble and good as well. However, we are often the best judge of ourselves if we do enough retrospection.
We are the only one that knows the truth about what we are doing, what we are thinking and who we are (including when no one is looking).
However, because it is difficult for you to understand a system of which you are part, we tend to use others as a proxy for understanding ourselves (the system).
While others are a good proxy, they aren’t the only or necessarily the best proxy. Our introspection is.
Introspection is how we exit the system and observe it as objectively as we want. And it is only through introspection that we can examine our true selves.
