Law from a legal assistant’s point of view, week 16: Self-awareness

By Quinton Lister, legal assistant

This new experience working in the legal field has been full of unexpected lessons. One is that it really does help to be self-aware. What I mean by that is that so often the things we struggle with are caused by ourselves. Therefore, in order to solve problems I often must look at myself and be willing to accept when I am causing problems. 

For instance, at my work if I am unaware of how to do something and I don’t have the first clue as to how to start I have to be willing to admit I don’t know where to start and I need help. I think the same is true in other aspects of life. If my relationship with my family is rocky, if I am having difficulty in my social circle, or whatever it might be I have to be willing to look at my part in the situation. This is not to say that I am always in the wrong, but I always have a part to play in my life because I am the one responsible for it. So, take that how you will but I did not expect to learn more about that when I took my current position, but life is funny like that.
