Flaws- why don’t we look more into our flaws, to get a better understanding of who we are. We constantly hear the good thing about ourselves through peers, friends, family, but you rarely hear about your flaws, and when you do hear them, do you really reflect on how those flaws affect you and others around you.

Something to think about:

After the podcast we found something interesting about our topic that we wanted to share with the people. We think Mark Manson said it best in his recent book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck”. The quote reads, “Many people are taught to repress their emotions for various personal, social, or cultural reasons- particularly negative emotions. Saldy, to deny one’s negative emotions is to deny many of the feedbacks mechanisms that help a person solve problems. As a result, many of these repressed individuals struggle to deal with problems throughout their lives. And if they can’t solve problems, then they can’t be happy. Remember, pain serves a purpose.” Thanks Mark I don't think we could have said it better ourselves. Tune in next week for another one episode!

The quote of this episode is: “It is a mans mind not his enemies or foes, that lures him to evil ways”-Budha.
