How to become a better person: Who does not desire to be a better person? The harsh reality is, none of us is perfect and we never will be. But that does not mean we should give up on self-improvement. We all are on a journey to becoming the person we desire to be. Here are a few tips to help you along the way to becoming the best feasible version of yourself.
How to become a better person:
Notice yourself for who you are
Your journey to becoming a better person starts with an interpretation of who you are. This is about becoming more aware of your deeper self, so you recognize what outrages you, what makes you happy or sad. Notice your strengths as well as your weaknesses. When we truly comprehend ourselves, we can make a deliberate effort to enhance ourselves and convey better to others.
When we forgive we let go of bitterness and hatred that eats away at our happiness. Forgiving someone who has hurt you authorizes you to let go of the pain from the past. In any way that does not mean you forget what happened; rather, it means you learn to remove bitterness and anger, which would otherwise be a load on your mind and heart. Releasing negative thoughts allows you to heal yourself emotionally, gives you stability, and helps you overcome sadness, anxiety, and rage that create conflicts within your relationships.
Avoid blaming others when things do not go right. A key element in growing as a person and becoming a better person is to accept responsibility for your actions, including your, emotions, behaviors, and failures everything you have command over.

We often blame others so that we hardly realize we are the one who is making mistakes. We make excuses for why something is not our fault.
You take command of your life when you accept that you alone are accountable for your actions.
Accept when you are wrong
When we apologize we show compassion for the wronged person. We admit our mistakes. When we truly try to make changes, we show humbleness and empathy for those we have hurt. This can disarm those we mistreated and heal their emotional hurts, but it can also help us heal. It is unbelievable to move beyond a mistake until we acknowledge it to ourselves and others. Accepting our mistakes allows us to reconnect and move forward.
Be a good listener
Listening to others with an open mind is one of the best things you can do for others. It shows the other person that you value their opinion. It allows you to create closer connections with others and hear outlooks you might otherwise overlook. We should try to engage in active listening with all the people around us. Being an effective listener can change your life for the better by encouraging deeper relationships and uncovering thoughts, and ideas outside your experiences.
