Self-concept is one’s view of personal identity and goals in relation to others, which could be influenced by culture and understood by the collectivism-individualism dimension. On the other hand, Self-concept is distinguishable from self-awareness, which refers to the extent to which self-knowledge is defined, consistent, and currently applicable to one’s attitudes and dispositions. Baumeister (1999) figured out that “the individual’s belief about himself or herself, including the person’s attributes and who and what the self is”.To the point, by applying self-concept to myself I have learn so many things in life with various perspective. I have learn more about myself of how to be patience, calm, kind toward others and extra. This is because life teaches us a lesson, it is just up to us if we are willing to learn them.
The most valuable lesson were not taught, they are experienced. As what I have gone through in my life and going through are the greatest lesson that I have ever learn. One of the most important things that I have learned in life is to ignore most of what people say. I watch what they do instead. I have learn about social influence, group dynamics and relationships. I also have learned about myself and how to describe the way that I am and the way that I think. These are the basic lesson that I have learn in my daily basis through the surrounding environment I live in, the people around I mingle with and the society that I grow up with. Firstly, about myself to a number of people I know, I seem to be extrovert, but actually I am the type of person who prefer indoor then outdoor but people easily judges me as if I am an extrovert, by the way I express myself towards them.
I also do prefer being lonely than mingling around with others especially during my leisure time. I don’t really like to be bothered by others during my leisure time cause they are the only time where I treat myself by doing the things that I love to do. Despite that, I prefer singing song during my leisure time and even writing diary of my own. On the other hand, I know a lot of people, but I only have two or three that I consider my friends. I value the quality of my relationships more than the quantity. I would rather go out and do something with one or two friends, rather than a large group.
I enjoy having the close relationships with my few friends, I have no desire to fill my life with a ton of superficial friendships that come and go.Furthermore, I love spending quality time with my love ones such as my family members and also my friends. Spending time with them make me feel better and happy. My family is like a sanctuary to me, this is because I always turn to them when I need support and strength. I also take comfort in knowing no matter which path I choose, my family stands behind me. Friends are someone who represent a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive. When it comes to friendship, anyone can show up when you are happy. But the ones who stay by your side when your heart falls apart are known as true friends.
I love spending time with one of my friend. It’s been 5 years since we know each other. But it always feels like I have always known her.
She has been there for me during my bright dan dark time. But as age increases, our maturity increases too, our responsible increases too, so it very rare for both of us to spend time with each other. It’s like once in a blue moon we catch up and spent our time together. These are the valuable moments in my life.Moreover, I have always dream about being an aviator, since it was my childhood dream, due to financial purpose I could not pursue my dream, but I have never fail to follow up the daily aviation news via social media, since they are my hobby and passion too. I have always motivate myself to not give up on pursuing my dream it is because never give up on something you really want, it is difficult to wait but more difficult to regret. I have never give up on finding a way to pursue my dream working in the aviation firm.
On the same time, in order to gain something we should work hard for it and learn more from our mistake, it is the rule of life. A simple life quotes that always motivates me is that ” when everything seems to be going against you, remember the aircraft take off against the wind, not with it.”
