I’ve been reading Ryan Holiday’s The Daily Stoic. It is a great book that demands to be read, and absorbed, slowly. One entry per day!
Today, this passage stood out to me today:
“As Goethe’s maxim goes, it is a great failing ‘to see yourself as more than you are.’ How can you really be considered self-aware if you refuse to consider your weaknesses?”
Ah, how many weaknesses have I swept under the rug! It’s time I face all the fuck-ups I’ve done. I need to see myself exactly as I am… and then begin to accept that person I finally see in the mirror.
