    Default Self inventory

    Do you take inventory on yourself?

    How often is enough?

    When is it too much?

    When do you get to the point it time to let it go?

    I'm aware of the reasons i behave the way i do but to examine the root causes of it doesn't half cause significant pain.

    Your thoughts please and feel free to elaborate on things i may of missed

    If taking inventory of myself is the same as examining the root causes of my behaviours, then I rarely stop doing that. I don't think it's ever too much, unless you feel your brain turning to scrambled eggs running through the same paths over and over again, at which point it's clearly naptime....

    This is a nice thread topic, actually. I'm surprised there are no replies yet.

    It's Godly and righteous,
    So eat it, you should.

    Do you take inventory on yourself?
    I did just recently . It was LONG over due (a couple years)...I almost forgot about myself, oops. I made myself a test and scored pretty low on a lot of the things that I really care about. I got a C- overall, lol. Improvement is in progress now!

    How often is enough?
    I think it would be a good idea to do it atleast once a day before you go to bed, weekly would be good too, or monthly.

    When is it too much?
    Too much would be multiple times a day, that would be obsessive.

    When do you get to the point it time to let it go?
    When you achieve all your goals and make things that better your life and others a habit.

    Yeah I think it's generally a good thing, unless it keeps you from doing.

    I do it constantly. Most of the time I don't actually get anywhere and it does keep me from doing things.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Do you take inventory on yourself?

    Yes. Every time I notice that I must change something within me in order to change my current situation, in terms of the future. To have a better knowledge of what to do in order to fulfill my visions or wishes.

    How often is enough?

    I don't know. The realizations I mentioned above come at different times, with a different frequency.

    Lately I have been doing this more that twice a day because, due to a traumatic experience I had some years ago, I have repressed my intuition, which is waking up again, all of a sudden.

    When I finally get back to my original self, I think I'll do this exercise once a week; like I did before all that crap happened.

    When is it too much?

    When it paralyzes you because of over-analysis.

    When do you get to the point it time to let it go?

    I don't know. And don't think I will. You are always changing (even if you don't notice it, or don't want to admit it), so, such moments of introspection are necessary.

    Yeah, that has been my personal experience as well. Well, I get the feeling that at least some progress has been made but it never seems enough, too high expectations I guess, so it's a constant work in progress.

    I'm a super reflective type of guy, but I spent a lot of time on the defence from my little psychological demons. Self inventory is a good idea, I need to give this a shot.

    This is the exact reason i came up with this thread because i find by examining myself and my actions continuously, i am so inside my mind too often thus i am not open to anything else .. That is not a positive place to be all the time.

    I completed understand this .. I have spent too long listening to others tell me what i am, those external factors bombarding my thoughts .. Now i am free of it all (equates to no social life at present as i want to tap back into this thinking process) i am feeling my very essence again .. I am trusting my thoughts/images, though they make no sense .. It's correct.

    Good luck with that
