Terminal and Intrumental Values
You hold the key to your own mind and imagination and it’s better for people to understand that so they’re able to move on in the future. Inner Harmony, Self-Respect and wisdom are definitely the most important to me because they encourage mental and spiritual growth. Know many people aren’t religious but spiritual doesn’t always have to be put in that context. Mean it in a more “One with your mind, one with your body’ kind of way. I’m not a person who is god with expressing her feelings through speech, I like to analyze privately and observe things.
I am more of a reserved person unless I’m in my comfort zone. Being comfortable with yourself could make you feel comfortable any and everywhere. Values like world peace and equality are definitely important, it’s just that to me, they’re only possible if EVERYONE in the world IS at peace within themselves, and at the rate we’re traveling I’m not sure if we’ll get there anytime soon. I don’t value social recognition at all; it hinders a person to do things only to be noticed. It’s okay to want to make a change, but don’t seek outside opinions for approval. It isn’t that important what others think of you.
You should focus on your own peppiness and positive contribution to the world. I usually value qualities I don’t yet possess, which explains why I’m mostly talking about the Terminal values. I feel like the instrumental values are pretty much qualities everyone possesses whether they know it or not, so I didn’t find the need to elaborate on them. I’m hoping to someday reach peace within myself or inner-harmony because I believe that the key to happiness, self-respect because essential to inner harmony, and wisdom because it’s necessary for clear understanding.
