This is a word that I know pretty well but I’ve been meaning to write about for a long time. It’s also what I like to call the “quirky” or “self-aware” type of word. For me, the word is used to describe the kinds of people I am. I tend to be introverted and reserved in the “self-aware” sense, and I like to keep things in perspective.
For instance, when I was a kid I used to be very self-aware, but now I’m like, I’m actually a self-aware person. I wouldn’t want someone to think I’m self-aware, but I’ve had many times in my life that I don’t want people to think I’m self-aware. In other words, I’m more of a self-aware person.
The quirky word is a very common one too. But the self-aware person is a different thing entirely. For instance, my self-awareness is that I am a very self-aware person. When I get bored I go to the gym. But I dont tell anybody that, Im not a gym bunny. When I sit on my couch and watch movies, Im a movie buff. When Im talking to people, I dont put on a show. When Im reading, Im reading.
I think you are right. It is more complicated than that. There is a tendency for people to think that if they are self-aware then they would be able to control, direct, and control their thoughts and actions. But we all know that that is not the same as control. We also know that being self-aware is not the same thing as being able to control one’s actions.
I think it is a bit more complicated than that. I think that we tend to think that if we are conscious we will have control over our thoughts and actions, but we tend to think that if we are not, then it is not our fault. That would be a bad thing though.
It is a good thing though. If we are self-aware then we can use our brains and our instincts to control our actions. But we have to use our brains to control our thoughts and actions. So I think that we should probably leave that aside.
But in order to control our actions, we have to be aware of what we are doing. We have to know what we are wanting to get out of it, and what we want to stop doing. If we are not consciously aware, then we have to learn to be conscious all the time. The more conscious we are and the less unconscious we are, the more difficult it is to control our behavior.
It’s very difficult to be conscious of every decision. When we are faced with an action, we automatically think about what we want out of it. Our minds immediately move toward that goal, even before we have the opportunity to think about what we want to do about it. We are so used to that default way of thinking that we are usually unprepared to resist it.
This is where “mindlessness” comes into the picture. We are so used to automatically moving toward a goal that it is hard for us to resist it the first time. We can’t fight it because we have no choice. We are so used to it that we have no choice.
In any situation, we have a choice. But we have to make a choice to resist it. It is that choice that makes the difference in the end, not the way we make it.
