10 Signs You Lack Self-Awareness

10 Signs You Lack Self-Awareness


Here are ten signs you lack self-awareness:

  • You always feel off-balance.
  • You can't seem to control your emotions: You're angry, or sad, or scared a lot of the time.
  • You do things to not feel your emotions.
  • You have unresolved issues in your life that affect you and others adversely.
  • You feel like you're living life as someone else.
  • You don't know who you really are deep inside.
  • There is a lot of conflict in your life, within yourself and with others.
  • You feel like you're not following your true path in life.
  • You're unhappy with how your life is going.
  • You listen to others instead of listening to your inner voice.

If you recognize yourself in any of these items then you have a great opportunity to take an honest look at yourself and start working on being the best version of you possible. Self-awareness isn't something that happens automatically, you have to identify the areas in your life that require some attention and work on them so you become a healthier more well-rounded person.

Why Are People Not Self-Aware?

Why Are People Not Self-Aware?


Why are people not self-aware? Because they've never been taught how to be or had an example in their lives of how to do it. When you've never been exposed to something, your likelihood of knowing anything about it is nil. In my experience, the vast majority of people have only the most basic self-awareness; they understand that they're alive and that they want certain things but not much beyond that. The key to developing deeper self-awareness is to do things like the following:

  • Discover who you really are deep inside and follow your true path in life.
  • Heal your hurts so they won't affect how you treat yourself and others.
  • Learn how your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors affect you and others and do everything in your power to move them in a positive experience.
  • Be comfortable in your own skin.
  • Be truly happy because you're living a kind, honest, deeply fulfilling life from your very core.
  • Treat people with empathy and compassion.
  • Make the world a better place.

Self-awareness doesn't just happen, it requires moving past the basics of simply existing to living a life of consciousness and deliberateness. You'll know you're self-aware when you no longer just barely make it through each day but rather live with great joy, kindness, and fulfillment.
