Throughout our daily lives, we are constantly observing and analyzing.
Whether it is an important document for work or a confusing text from the opposite sex, we have successfully trained our brains to obtain data and examine it for deeper meaning or explanation.
While it has become second nature to think critically, the ironic part is we often forget to apply this concept to ourselves.
Introspection involves examining one’s own thoughts, feelings and sensations in order to gain insight.
Being introspective is often a rare quality, and with good reason: slowing down and taking a breather from our crazy lives isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
In a society fixated on fast-paced environments and a “go, go, go” mentality, it is difficult to find the time to sit down and reflect. However, setting aside a small portion of your day for self-examination can be a lot more helpful than you might expect.
Think of introspection as a form of spring cleaning. By sifting through old memories and experiences you get a clearer sense of where you are, who you are, and who you would like to be in the future. Introspection helps you remain accountable and encourages you to take responsibility.
Humans tend to resist introspection and self-reflection because no one wants to be reminded of all the mistakes they have made. No one needs a reminder of all their regrets. It is hard. It is not easy to look back on your past to dig in.
Once you do practice introspection you will feel different. Why? Because you will be more cognizant of all the versions of you that have existed thus far. This type of introspection helps you find peace with all of your experiences, while also becoming mindful of who you are today. It is about acceptance.
