One learns about their authentic self through others’ observations of their person and conduct. When we look at ourselves, we tend to put on rose-tinted glasses and misconstrue who we really are. Our peers get a third-party view of us, and are subject to our conduct, granting them a more broad and realistic sense of who we are. As nonviolence warriors, simply reflecting or thinking doesn’t spark change. It is through conduct and “doing” that we induce change, and better ourselves. Reflection and ideas start in our heads, but they only create an impact when we put them out in the world.
