This is actually one of the most fascinating things about self-care. People are obsessed with the idea that they spend their days taking care of their own. It’s what they do, and it’s what they do best. It’s the most important thing to all of us that we can be self-aware and self-reliant, because it is the most important thing to us.
That’s why many people do a lot of things that are bad for us, like drinking too much, eating too much, smoking too much, overeating, or doing too many things that make us feel bad (like cutting out calories, exercise, etc). When we do these things, we feel bad and in turn, feel bad about ourselves. So we do things that we think make ourselves feel good, and that we feel good about.
In the early 2000s, there were several things that were really bad for us, but none of them were self-aware. We were in denial about our bodies, our body image, our self worth, and our feelings about ourselves. After a few years of doing these things, we got sick of them and started to do things to make ourselves feel better. This is called self-loathing.
Self-loathing is a defense mechanism that allows us to feel guilty about something we’ve done. It’s often a defense mechanism that causes us to be reluctant to do things that are self-aware, or to take responsibility for our own choices.
People who believe they are self-aware feel guilty about not being able to control themselves, or about not having a great body image or self worth. They also often feel guilty about the things that they cant control, and so they self-loathe. A person who says they don’t believe they are self-aware is saying that they are not self-aware.
The main reason we spend time on autopilot is because sometimes we feel we are being taken advantage of, not because we are lazy. We feel like we have to be more careful when doing something that is self-aware, or we feel like we are being taken advantage of.
We want to feel important, but we are often not. We feel like we have to prove our worth to ourselves, and that means we feel guilty if we do something that we feel is wrong. Being that lazy, self-loathing, self-blaming, self-hating person is really an invitation to something else, like anxiety or self-loathing.
So, if we want to feel important and to feel like we deserve to be taken advantage of in some way (like by our family or a stranger), then we have to be aware of our motivations. We need to be aware of what we are doing, and our motives. It is possible to feel happy about self-awareness, but not about self-consciousness.
It’s not possible to be completely healthy and self-aware without being self-conscious, or at least self-conscious about your own existence. How we feel about ourselves and our own thoughts and actions is a key part of the self-awareness process, so if we don’t feel good about something, we might be less likely to want to do it.
It is no different when we feel good about ourselves, but when we feel bad about ourselves, we are less likely to be able to do anything about it. In fact, it turns out that when we feel bad about ourselves, we actually want to do something about it. In other words, we feel better about ourselves when we can do something about it, and less so when we cant.
