Yes, you didn’t misread it, it’s right. Self awareness is the mother of your personality. Everything that comes from you i.e toxicity, introversion, being a better mother, or a humorous partner it all begins with self awareness. How? To find it you need to read ahead ( Don’t worry, There’s no traffic jam here)
Have you ever wondered why people are being “so rude” to you like they seem to ignore you & you eventually end up declaring them as a bad person.
But rewinding a little bit more, it’s you who acted the same few days ago which therefore leads them to view you, as a “toxic person” but before your mind starts to raise the flood of questions let me tell you. It happens. A lot of times. But not to worry, these moments are replaceable.
Sometimes, it could also be that you’re imagining a better or ideal version of yourself but you’ve been an irritating & short tempered person in reality.
Or sometimes you’re clogged between the worries and concerns about the world, or about yourself. All I mean is you aren’t living your present moment and that time you do / say some things that you aren’t supposed to & you fail to remember it. It could also be because you really meant what you said and you don’t mind it.
Being self aware helps you to differentiate your good & bad traits and helps to correct them.
You can avoid through some self awareness
Self-awareness involves being aware of different aspects of the self including traits, behaviours, and feelings
Some steps of “self awareness”
• Communication When someone you (like your best friend, partner etc) seem hurted through your actions & they seem to neglect you or they may act abnormal you can go & talk to them
• Journal. When you journal you put down your emotions on the paper but along with that you also write you back up things that occur to you in a day which might help you to remind where you screwed up & stop you from repeating the mistakes
• Practising mindfulness
Mindfulness includes focused attention in the moment to whatever one is doing and involves practices such as meditation or a quieting of the mind.
Once you’ve pointed out your behaviours, its time to renovate them.
