Cultivating Self Awareness Part 1

Self-love is one of my favorite topics to write about, but it’s occurred to me lately that I haven’t spent a great deal of time writing about one of the foundations of this important topic — self-awareness. Self-awareness is conscious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives, and desires, and it’s presence is essential for loving who you are. You might be thinking, But I know who I am! Of course, we all know ourselves on some level, but self-awareness is something we should— and can!— always be contemplating. Because we’re always growing, changing, becoming, to truly know the self, we must constantly be curious about who we are.

Here are some thought provoking question you may want to answer for improving your self awareness scale :

  • How do I respond when I don’t get what I want?
  • How do I deal with negative people?
  • How much self control do I have with things that I know are bad for me, but tend to indulge in?
  • How do I deal with inconvenient life situations?
  • How do I respond to situations that I have no control over?
  • How do I deal with negativity in my environment?

Come back tomorrow for more thought provoking questions.

      Self-awareness is the ability to focus on yourself and how your actions, thoughts, or emotions do or don’t align with your internal standards. If you’re highly self-aware, you can objectively evaluate yourself, manage your emotions, align your behavior with your values, and understand correctly how others perceive you.

  2. Asking ourselves tough questions are always good, because it helps us cut through the crap we tell ourselves to hide the truth of the matter. Thanks for this post!

      Most welcome Stuart. I am glad you liked the post. I agree with you. It is very easy for us to dwell in the thought patterns not entirely useful to us. Thought provoking questions can help us stay in touch with the realities of life while grinding for our goals.
