There is a second, ‘hidden self’ in most individuals. If you already know yours, try to improve it. If not, then now is the time to discover it.It takes a great deal of courage to put one’s self at risk for the common good and this is one of the biggest challenges towards self-improvement.
It is also hard to develop the ability of empathising with others. It takes great skills to be able to discern someone’s hidden self and it is necessary to try and improve your ‘reading’ skills. Once you master this, use your newly acquired skills to help others improve.
