Why is this so important? Well, for one, it’s a way of reframing the question of why your mind is so busy, and how you can stop it from being so. Secondly, it’s a great way to take a longer-term approach to self-awareness. By asking a hard question and writing about it, you can set yourself up to be able to make choices about what you are doing and why you are doing it.
The problem is that this question is really difficult to ask, especially when you don’t have enough information to answer. So asking, “what is the purpose of my thoughts?” isn’t going to get the answer you want. Ask, “What am I doing?” and you will get a lot more information about what you are doing and why you are doing it.
Self-awareness is the ability to make yourself aware of the thoughts, intentions, and emotions that you have. If you have a self who is not aware of their own thoughts and emotions, it can be tempting to ignore them, or to act on them like a robot.
The problem is that if you want to be aware of your feelings you need to be aware of your thoughts. But when you don’t have enough information to answer, you are only taking what you feel, which is often not what you want to hear. This is where self-awareness comes in, because it is the ability to listen to your feelings and to know the details of what is going on in your head and what you are doing as a person.
In any case, self-aware people are aware of their thoughts and emotions (and emotions are the most common reason people don’t know what they feel). The problem is that in our society, people are encouraged to ignore their thoughts and emotions. This is especially true for young people. Many of us have grown up with the culture of “if you can’t handle the emotion, don’t show it.
To listen to your feelings, you have to be aware that you have feelings and you have to know that you will express them. The problem is that people who are not self-aware are often just as emotionally stunted as their peers.
So a lot of people who feel they don’t know what they feel often find that they have to learn how to be self-aware. Like the kid who was in a fight with his friend and his face was covered in blood, but you know what? He didn’t know what he was feeling.
The most common mistake I see people make when they want to express their emotions is to hide them behind whatever they call a “mask.” This is a simple mistake that results in people being unable to tell what their heart feels and what their mind is telling them. They want to express their emotions through music, so they hide behind whatever music they listen to. It feels good and it works. And, it’s true.
But that’s when their mask is lifted because they are able to reveal their true emotions. When you are able to let your real emotions out, you will feel the right way to be. And I believe that you can know the feelings of other people and know how they feel when they are not being honest with you.
I believe that when we are able to feel the right way to be, we understand more, and we know more. We are able to feel the true feelings of others in a way that makes us ourselves feel that way. So let’s ask: what does the music say to you? I’m always reminded of the movie ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting.
