I’m really excited about this book, it’s not just a book about the “self knowledge” but more about my journey as a teacher of mindfulness and how it’s changed my life in such a positive way. It also discusses things like how the “self” is not just a brain but a physical body, how emotions are not separate from the body and how the body is a very complex system.
The book, like many of the articles here, takes the reader into a personal journey and encourages them to identify with the characters they’re reading about, so I won’t spoil anything for you. But the book itself was written by a woman, so there’s something very poignant and personal about it.
There’s a lot of talk about self-awareness in the book, which is good because even when you do not have it, you still probably should care about it.
Well I personally was reading the book because I wanted to, and I was encouraged to by the author. Like many women in the book there are a few very strong female characters who are really strong characters. I’m not saying that one of them is going to be an alpha female, but one of them is going to be a strong female character.
The author is saying that women are more prone than men to self-awareness, but she is using this to talk about how women are still very much aware of how their behavior affects others around them.
This is true, but it is also not the only reason why female characters are more likely to be self-aware. It’s not just a matter of whether or not they realize they’re self-aware, but also that being self-aware does not mean that they are consciously aware of themselves. The best way to be aware about yourself is to look at yourself in the mirror every day.
I was born, raised, and educated in the Northside, and I don’t know anyone who is from the Southside. I don’t know a single person who lived there who is self-aware. I don’t know a single person who is self-aware, and I don’t know a single person who is self-aware.
The thing you need to realize when you try to be self-aware is that you’re not self-aware. You’re just as vulnerable to being fooled by a fake self as anyone else. You can fool yourself into thinking you’re a better person than you really are, but you’re not. You just have a harder time detecting that inner lie than anyone else.
The irony is that by trying to be self-aware, you actually end up trying to be less aware of reality. You still have to deal with the reality you’re trying to control, but you have to worry less about how others see you. By trying to be less aware of reality, you end up being less aware of yourself.
We know its easier to get others to think you’re better than you really are. Because you know what youre really good at. You know how to make people like you. Yet when you take the time to understand yourself, you find out how much you suck. Because you actually have feelings for yourself that you need to be aware of. But you can’t get the self-awareness to go away. So you just tell yourself youre better than you really are.
