An amazing inward benefit occurs when we outwardly recognize the pains and struggles of others.
Amyra Mah said it this way, “As I learned to accept myself, I began to relate to people on a deeper level and saw that everyone comes with their own pains and struggles. I learned to appreciate them for their flaws as much as their strengths, which in turn helped me to accept myself more.”
Self-perception benefits leaders with an awareness of their strengths and weaknesses, along with an understanding of how to help others with the same.
The beauty of this discovery results in compassion, sympathy, empathy, and patience.
