How To View Negative Traits In Yourself

27 June 2017 · The Spiritual Path

In looking to change our own negative traits, we should seek to understand them first: How did it come about? What caused it? How many lives did it take to create? Remember the trait was a product of decades or centuries of repeating a behavioral pattern and to expect to change it overnight or in the next five years is unreasonable. We must take a slow approach. It will take time, but understanding it first brings forth compassion. Certainly if it is not a good trait, then you should work to change it. Just be patient and compassionate with yourself as you work on it.
