Very often do we see our own faults in others. Whatever irritating habits your mother or father, sister or brother, friends or colleagues have, there’s a great chance you’re doing the very same (or similar) annoying things.
It’s easy to point out faults in the people around us, but harder to see them in ourselves. It could have to do with the fact that we can’t actually look at ourselves as much or in the same way as we look at a person in front of us. But it can also be due to the fact that we easily turn blind for our own actions and habits.
That’s why it’s a good idea to take a step back and observe your own behavior every now and then. Start off by noticing other people’s behaviors and which ones annoy you, and make an honest judgment whether you do similar things. You could even, if you dare, ask your friends and family what they think are your negative traits.
The more we analyze our own behaviors, the more we will get to know ourselves. And getting to know ourselves and understanding why we do certain things is the key to our growth as human beings, and becoming better versions of ourselves.
