When I’m on Twitter, I’ve often been asked about the state of self-understanding. If you are, do you think being self aware is something that can help you get through the day? The best way to approach this question is to think about the person you are, and your beliefs.
You’re probably not ready to get self-aware. After all, you’ve probably already lost a lot of your inner self when you’ve spent a lot of time in your head.
Self-awareness can be scary, but its a much more pleasant approach to take in than trying to be fully aware. You don’t need to be fully aware, you just need to be aware of yourself and your beliefs. You can’t get out of your head, but you can get out of your head of yourself.
The more you take self-awareness to the point where you stop trying to be fully aware of yourself, the less likely you are to get self-aware. But since most of us are still having a hard time accepting that we can’t get fully self-aware, we’ve been advised to stop trying to take self-awareness for granted.
So if you’re going to be fully aware, stop trying to be fully aware of who you are. You can take self-awareness for granted if you just stop trying to be fully aware of yourself…
That’s my personal experience with this. Self-awareness is a scary thought and it’s scary because it can be very limiting. But at the same time it’s a wonderful thought and it’s a wonderful thought because it allows you to take control of your life. If you can accept that you cant take self-awareness for granted, you have a lot of time to practice acceptance. You can practice acceptance by taking self-awareness for granted…
Self-awareness is not a bad thing per se. What is bad, is the person who has not accepted the fact that they are on autopilot.
If you are ready to break free of your own habits and routines and to take control of your life, then you have to be willing to accept that you are on autopilot. Otherwise you will fail and you will be on your own.
You need to be ready to be on your own, or you will fall into a vicious cycle of negative thoughts and self-judgment. And what is self-judgment? Is it a bad thing? No. It is the exact opposite of self-awareness. Self-judgment is when you say “I’m not ready, but I’m going to do this anyway and I’m going to be OK.
When you feel like you are about to fall off a cliff, and you really are ready to go, then you are self-judgment. And when you do, you are falling. When you are ready, you are ready.
