Well I thought self image was going to be a deep topic and conversation but it was a bottomless pit. I now have more question than answers on the topic.
Self-image turned into an identity that screamed for more self-awareness and self everything…
Definitions: Self-image is the idea one has of one’s abilities, appearance, and personality.
Identity is the distinguishing character or personality of an individual.
Maybe I overthink things, and my head swirls in many directions, but do we have any idea about self-image?
The podcast has some information, but I still have so many questions.
With the aid of self-help books, podcasts, and audibles, and don’t forget the advice of strangers on the internet, we should be the diamonds of self-image and be as healthy and happy as all those quotes/memes say we should be.
We are not to care what others think; nope, we are not to CARE what others think!
But we care what others think.
In my little (Healthy?) dive into the topic of self-image, I had a hell of a time trying to figure out what I thought about myself and what I thought I should think about myself. My thoughts were unfocused, and I was unsure if I was trying to come up with something that was indeed just my thought about myself and not what others thought of me based on experience and information.
Yes, confusing is the answer.
