THOUGHT The greek philosophers had a saying: know thyself. Most of the time we lead unhappy lives because we don’t (and never really get to) know ourselves. This is why introspection is important to understanding how we feel. It is not enough to go through life coasting without truly understanding ourselves. We need to understand our intentions and motives for doing the things we do. Your words should coincide with your actions, and your actions should coincide with your emotions. Here, we explore on the ideas about self knowledge and how we can try to better our destructive habits and learn how to cultivate good ones.
