Know Your Bad Self -

Knowing your flaws isn't some deep metaphysical experience.  It can be simple.  For instance, you know you're short with people when stressed.  So guess what happens?  When you're stressed, you get short with people.  It doesn't mean that it represents the totality of who you are.  It simply means that it occurs.  To live a good life we need to neither eradicate all flaws or live high high on a pedastal.  We just have to live, fairly present, aware of why we crave things, and aware that our actions don't always match up completely with the reasons we tell ourselves we're acting.  It isn't a huge deal, though the consequences can be so.
