Inner Growth Thought of the Day: Awareness Of Layers & Filters
Having awareness of the layers and filters that affect your day-to-day interactions and life experiences isn’t something that is always in the forefront, but when it becomes part of what you see, the world around you gains a whole new depth.
With your inner-self components visible (judgements, culture, mindset, opinions, self-love, etc.) you have a clearer view of how you affect a situation, but also a clearer view on what the event or person involved in the situation is expressing.
Here are some ways to keep those layers and filters that are a part of you in the forefront as you pursue inner growth.
- Make a list of the layers of yourself you are aware of (culture, opinions, societal roles, stereotypes, etc.) and for each layer identify two to three ways the layer adds a filter to how you see things, react to things, interpret things (people, events, thoughts, conversations, etc.).
- Throughout your daily interactions make a note of the things that bother you and identify what layer and/or filters are involved in that particular interaction that bothered you.
- Any important event that takes place throughout the week, take five to 10 minutes to think about the “story” (the situation) from minimum two sides (two separate perspectives).
Your turn – Share your inner growth thought of the day, a sentence, life examples, or action steps you take with new beginnings 😊
