A new comment from Justice Pondani.
I agree with your statement, indeed as Aristotle rightly put it self-awareness is the beginning of all wisdom. When you know yourself you know things that upsets yourself to an extent you learn how to avoid them or how to minimise the challenges they might pose since some situations can not be avoided.
Understanding myself is like knowing who I'm I, knowing my strength, my weakness and even knowing my background. This might help me to help to help other people, and even cooperate with other easy.
