The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and behaviors are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget were on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.
A person without self awareness is able to exercise a little meta-cognition and say, “Hmm… every time my sister calls me and asks for money, I end up drinking a lot of vodkas. That might not be a coincidence,” a person with self awareness just hits the bottle and doesnt look back.
It turns out Colt Vahn is an amnesiac who seems to have woken up on a beach with no memory of why he’s on Deathloop’s party island, Blackreef. That’s okay though since someone has left him vague messages in the sky about what to do.
The purpose of this guide is to help you to understand that self awareness is an essential part of the process of becoming more self-aware. When we don’t know what we want, we don’t know where to look for it. We can’t just choose to “be more self-aware” and then magically find it in the midst of our everyday life. We need to be aware of what we’re doing, even if it’s just a single moment.
These are some of the most commonly used words in the English language. They are all in English. I use the name of the person I’m talking to when I’m talking to myself. This is a lot like the name of a town or city, so no need to write it off.
I have a new friend. We recently got to hang out for a while and she asked me about the different things I was doing. She’s also been reading a lot since her dad died recently. She told me that she was reading a lot of self-help books since her dad died. She told me it was because her dad was so self-aware that he could actually have some of the best advice in the world.
The same reason an adult would read self-help books is because they’re so much more effective when they have someone to teach them. Adults have to learn from the examples of people they know, but kids learn from their parents. Self-help books are a great way to learn how to be self-aware.
That’s also why I like to read books about self-awareness. Self-awareness is just too important to be left out of your life.
