We might see this and resonate with it without noticing the fact that we too might embody the same human idiosyncrasy. And it is human nature to be unaware of ourselves since we might be disconnected from our shadows (the unconscious parts of self).
While some do see themselves as they are or close to it, a lot of us will see only the opposite of who we are as we confuse what we want to be with where we are right now. Also we might not want to face our own flaws because that only reminds us that we have unresolved pain and we will go out of our way not to face that. A lack of self-awareness is how we might survive from old painful memories and emotions so we remain split off from our true selves and unaware of the fragmentation within.
This is why it’s so important to heal as when we do heal, those fragmented parts of self will get recognized, forgiven, understood, loved and integrated and that is when we become whole, self-aware, and see ourselves how we really are as opposed to how we want to be seen.
