LOOKING GLASS SELF?

Read a very interesting and informative article about self-actualization. It says, that to be self-actualized is to accept yourself for what you are and other people for what they are.

Self-actualized people are spontaneous, natural, and concerned with ethical and human values, disliking falseness and often having a mission, or a cause in life. A very important quality of self-actualization is autonomy, or independence. This strength is steaming from plenty of love and respect in the past, so that the person "is free to act relatively independently of these needs in the present." At the same time, the relationships self-actualizers develop may be more profound than those of other people. They identify strongly with humanity and work to stop unjust and dehumanizing conditions. For these people, life is so meaningful.

Among other qualities that stand out in a self-actualized individual are creativity, originality, and a positive attitude toward important tasks.

Are you a self-actualized person?

A Jun,

Looking glass self means seeing ourselves through the eyes of other people, even to the extent of incorporating their views of us into our own self-concept. Young people are often strongly influenced by their peers and will go beyond conforming to changing their self-image to match.

Ika nga hawa-hawa, gaya-gaya!

@ Eric,

Basta't punta lang kayo. Maraming tindahan a paligid, we can always buy something to eat. Just like the old days.

@ Badong,

Dito rin sa tabi namin puro sira na ang pc kaya napilitan akong bumili para walang istorbo. Besides, mangangamoy sigarilyo ka sa mga internet cafes dito. Puro mga pugon ang mga gumagamit!
