A self-proclaimed “massage therapist” writes a book called, “The Three Levels of Self-Awareness: How to Get Where You Want to Go”. The title alone is a good one, but this book goes much deeper with examples of how to get where you want to go. Topics include how to get out of the rut, how to make new friends, how to love and stay loved, and on and on.
As a former massage therapist myself I love this book. It’s not just a cute read about how to get out of the rut or how to make new friends, it’s a very serious, and sometimes quite depressing read about the way self-awareness can cause us to make bad choices. Whether or not we’re aware of it, we’re making bad choices every time we buy a new car, pay our bills, or try to build a life.
I am a self-aware person. I have a very healthy self-awareness. I am aware of my emotions and I know what I want out of life. I am aware of my body and I know what I want and how to make it happen. I am aware of my surroundings and I know what I want and how to make it happen. I am aware of what I think or feel and I know how to recognize and deal with the feelings associated with it.
We’re told that if you can be aware of your emotions, you are able to handle your emotions. This is a common belief that many of us tend to hold, but it’s a common and inaccurate one. Many people, myself included, have a very hard time dealing with their emotions. They tend to get frustrated, angry, depressed, and even suicidal.
Emotions can be scary because they can be so powerful. They can change your entire life. One of the best ways to be aware of your feelings is to learn to recognize them as emotions. You can learn to tell when you are having an emotion, and you should remember that not every emotion is a good thing. Some emotions are harmless, and some are not. Sometimes your emotions are not even about the person you are feeling. They are about the world you are experiencing.
Well, I think that’s what you get for trying to play the role of a therapist. And if you’re not sure whether the world you’re experiencing is a good thing, try to learn to see it that way too. Emotions are the natural state of most human beings. We have a tendency to use mental illness to avoid real emotions. This is wrong, and we’re not always aware of why that is.
While certain emotions are very natural, and others are not, it does make a difference in which we use them. Some emotions are very strong. For example, anger is usually very visceral. If you are angry for a long time, you have a very strong emotional reaction. If you are angry for a short time, you might get a physical reaction. There is a difference.
So, when we feel angry, we often do things like throw things, get in physical fights, get involved in arguments with others. But what about the other emotions that are so much more subtle? Things like fear, sadness, and so on. When you are in an angry mood, does it usually get worse? I think so. When you are sad you might go into a deep depression, and then you might suddenly get some random idea that makes you want to cry.
