#930 What we have already done

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.  ~ Carl Jung

Self-awareness is an act of self-kindness.  ~ Reuben Lowe

People of the world don't look at themselves, and so they blame one another.  ~Rumi

Whereas the average individuals often have not the slightest idea of what they are, of what they want, of what their own opinions are, self-actualizing individuals have superior awareness of their own impulses, desires, opinions, and subjective reactions in general.  ~ Abraham Maslow

We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.  ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
