We all have blind spots—things about ourselves that we just don’t see or things we’d just rather ignore.
It takes a good and trusted friend (not a family member or anyone whom you have an emotional or intimate connection with) to be your mirror—someone you trust who will be brutally honest with you.
All you have to do is allow them to be.
Really go there.
This might not be easy for either of you.
Here are just a few characteristics that you may want to consider asking about…
- Your temperament
- Your strengths
- Your weaknesses
- How they would describe you to someone else
- Patterns of behavior
- Your appearance
- Perceived triggers
- What you could improve upon
Whatever they tell you, accept it.
If you are into personal development, the feedback is priceless.
