Self-awareness is key to living a spiritually, mentally, and physically healthy life. Let's get into 4 norms that you should adopt when it comes to being aware of yourself!
Self-awareness is the conscious knowledge of one's own character, feelings, motives, and desires.
This is you bringing attention to every aspect of your life.
Knowing what makes you happy.
Knowing what makes you sad.
Knowing what foods are bad for you.
Knowing what causes you to feel overwhelmed.
Knowing your weaknesses.
Knowing your strengths.
And as I am typing I feel someone saying “Well how am I possibly going to know all these things about myself, that is going to take forever!”
My response to that: “You know everything about everyone else who is important in your life, why not take the time to figure you out?”
Let’s get into the norms of self-awareness that we need to adopt as a people in Christ.
Knowing Your Triggers
You need to know these so you can address, avoid, and cut them out of your life.
Address the ones that you have the ability to control.
Avoid the triggers that you have no control over.
Cut out all triggers from your life.
Be Clear With Your Boundaries
Boundaries do not keep people out, they are set to protect your heart, mind, body, and spirit.
Be clear and concise with your boundaries, when you fail to do this you allow people and thing wiggle room to invade you.
Armor For Your Mindset
Self-awareness is a piece of the armor that you need to protect yourself from lies from Satan, self-doubt, and people putting their own opinions/ beliefs onto you.
The Destruction of Denial
Living in denial is like living with a shaded lens over your eyes. It prohibits you from seeing, feeling, and experiencing the truths about you. And it is not because you are unable to, it's because you chose not to.
If you are a person who…
Minimizes your feelings.
Downplays the reality of bad situations.
Seldomly talks about how you feel.
It’s likely you are under the lens of denial and not because you are intentionally this way. This is caused by how we are raised and experienced trauma.
Something you can do today: Write down the norm you want to adopt and use that as your journal prompt this week.
