Self-Knowledge

September 28th, 2013

It is necessary to take attention to this issue, the Auto deception, and how this can impact on your personal development, also mention you that it is one of the first barriers to self-knowledge and as I said in the previous article that without self-knowledge there is little likely that it can improve self-esteem. All of them, myself included we lied to each other at some point in our lives and worse that we lied to ourselves, either it by lack of security, low self-esteem, cowardice, immaturity and many more reasons. But all this, if it becomes frequent and part of your day to day you can harm and immerse yourself in a vicious cycle of low self-esteem and disconnection from reality. Self-deception is a defense mechanism of our I inmate, who does not know to react to certain situations of life and this is due to lack of self-knowledge, weakness and lack of self-esteem. Self-deception is a process that has been fed over time in your mind, situations difficult, painful that they have been there and that you hide them, you create an attitude false, you lie to yourself and not get the light, your true feelings, emotions on this topic do you think that it is best to store them in a corner but sometime they will exit and won’t let you be really what you want to be, will not allow you to be completely happy. Self-deception refers to think and say things that are outside of reality, in different aspects of life, sentimental, work or friends, there are shortcomings, but they are not recognized. Self-deception can say also that it is the distorted vision of reality, exaggeration of virtues, abilities, situations change, denial of errors and limitations. For example: If you have a child with behavioral problems, that you abused in front of people, the best for you, will not recognize that there is a problem there what you will do is try to justify or minimize the fact or when your partner hits you or respects you not looking for excuses and justify the fact so as not to face the truth.
