How self-aware are you? I recently discovered that my self-awareness wasn’t all the great. Check out these five self-care hacks to help you develop your self-awareness.
How Self-Aware Are You?
Should we be worried about being self-aware? I think yes. Without self-awareness, we react instead of act. People might not find us pleasant to be around, or we may find ourselves constantly in relational hot water. We can go through life glibly unaware of ourselves, or, we can take steps to get to know ourselves better.
Maybe you don’t struggle with self-awareness the way I do. That scene from Runaway Bride always comes to mind–the one where Richard Gere Accuses Julia Roberts of not even knowing how she likes her eggs cooked.
Maybe you can relate. Sometimes we go through life trying so hard to please others we lose ourselves in our quest. But a lack of self-awareness can only hurt us. When we aren’t self-aware, we can easily become victims. Others may sense our weakness and try to take advantage of us, or we may feel constantly dissatisfied and take on the victim role.
Listen to today’s podcast for five hacks to help you become more self-aware. Just because you aren’t self-aware now, doesn’t mean you have to stay that way forever! When we take care of ourselves, we know who we are, what we stand for, and what makes us tick.
