Yes. Knowing yourself is imperative to understanding others, because when we know our own character, moods, peeves, and imperfections, it's a lot easier to recognize these same traits existent in others. When we figure out how imperfect we are, we must concentrate on the fact that we can improve upon ourselves, and love one another regardless of our imperfections. After all, when you love yourself, it's much easier to be nonjudgmental towards others. With experience in life, it becomes a lot easier to recognize that as human beings, we often go through different phases in our lives and that we have to exercise understanding, patience, and grace during the most challenging times; in respect to the many life phases of unique individuals at various stages of growth. Such phases would bring about certain moods in people just as life has brought about various moods in you. We must always consider factors such as; our special backgrounds, culture, religion, and environmental factors. In doing so this could improve upon our relationships with a wider range of people, and encourage more patience and understanding for unknown variables when their behavior or interaction is offensive, alarming, surprising, or unpredictable. Also, be open-minded to accept that their odd behavior may have nothing to do with you directly. Finally, always remember to never to expect anything from the unexpected, and to always set a high standard for your own conduct no matter what the situation. If we can remember this, we would generally be more grateful in our interaction with people, as opposed to frustrated or disappointed.
