What is Self-Image: An In-depth Answer

What is Self-image

Sam suffers from a poor self-image.

Your eyes, ears, and the rest of the senses receive the information from the outside world and send it to the brain. The brain, then, has to interpret these inputs.

And our perception usually doesn’t represent reality accurately. That’s because our senses can’t make sense of everything. There will always be a percentage of toxic and biased beliefs.Read More »How Clearly Do You Think You See The World?
