adrian miraculous has a lot to say about the psychology behind self-awareness. I am a huge fan of this book. It talks about how we all have our thoughts and feelings that we need to be mindful of, but how we often don’t even notice them. He talks about how we are all so busy with the tasks we do daily that we don’t take the time to pause and become aware of our thoughts and actions.
When you think about it, it really does sound as if we are all so busy with the things we do that it is difficult to pause and take the time to be aware of what is going on with us. But that is exactly how it is with people. We all want attention, we all want praise, and we all want to feel like we are valued. We all want to be recognized, to be the center of attention, but we rarely actually are.
This is something that I have known about myself for a long time and it is something I’ve been struggling with quite a bit, at times even feeling guilty about it. I was constantly told that I should be “self aware,” but I just didn’t want to admit that I was doing things just because they were good for me.
Ive had to admit that I am very self aware, but I also don’t think that that makes me a bad person. I think that there is a place for self awareness and self acceptance, but the problem is that I have never really felt good about myself. There are so many things that I have no control over that I dont feel good about. I often feel like I have to prove myself to people and they dont understand me and I feel very guilty about this.
People who are aware of their shortcomings and feel bad about them are often called “self-critical” by their peers, and that’s basically the word that most people who are self-critical use to describe themselves. They feel that they don’t measure up to someone else’s standards of perfection, and this leads them to try to prove themselves to everyone else.
The idea of self-criticism is a very old one. An ancient Greek philosopher, Seneca, wrote a great deal about it in his “Meditations.” He said that we have to learn to be humble and to be honest with ourselves. But also, to be honest with others.
Adrian Miracle is like a modern day “P-word” for the self-critic. All we want to do is be perfect as a person, and in doing so, we find that we have to be perfect in a specific area. For this reason, we feel that we have to be perfect in all areas of our lives, and in order to do that, we have to constantly prove ourselves to others, and we have to constantly put others down and make them feel bad about themselves.
We are, of course, all guilty of these sorts of behaviors. But they are very rare and very damaging to ourselves and to others. To be honest with ourselves is a very important part of being humble, but it is also an important part of being humble with others.
The fact of the matter is that we don’t have to be perfect. What works for one person may not work for another. If we think that we aren’t good enough, then we need to put ourselves in the position of others to prove ourselves.
These are the sorts of behaviors that make a culture good, and the point is that they are the sort of behavior that we all need to work to improve. Being good at something is just as important as being good at everything else.
