From the depths of my childhood I was taught that there are three levels of self-awareness. The first level is what we call “self-consciousness.” It is the conscious awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we consciously choose to think and act on.
Our second level is called “self-awareness”. This awareness is the awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we consciously choose not to think or to act on.
The third level is called self-awareness. This is the awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we consciously choose to think or to act on.
The first section of our first level is what we call self-awareness. It is the conscious awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we consciously choose to think and act on. Our second section is called self-awareness. This awareness is the awareness of the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors we consciously choose not to think or to act on.
The first few levels of our first level, self-awareness, are a bit more difficult. Our goal in these sections is to break through the barriers that separate us from the rest of the world, so we can see who we really are. But we can’t just walk up to someone and say, “Hey, I’m Matt L. Larsen” right? We need to let a little light in and look at ourselves in the mirror.
Most of the real world is a bit of a blur for most people. The point of the first level is to get us to see our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as our own. To do that, we need to take a step back, look up, and see what we’re actually doing. This is the first level of a long, difficult process of self-awareness.
It’s also the first step to a whole lot of fun. Because if we don’t take a look, we might just find ourselves like the guy from the movie “Fight Club” who says, “I’m a geek. I’m cool. I’m a loser. I’m a douche. And I’m from the future.
The scene in which Matt’s character sees himself is the most fun to watch because it shows us how we are all just walking through our lives, trying to see what’s really going on. But it’s also the most difficult. Matt is trying to see the world as it is, trying to be the person he wants to be, even as his brain is literally falling apart. This is what it feels like to go through the stages of grief.
We all go through stages of grief. For some it is very difficult and hard to process. For others it is very easy and comfortable. Regardless, if you find yourself going through a stage of grief, it is important that you stop and ask yourself why you feel this way. This is where compassion comes in. Because if you are going through a stage of grief, then it is clear you need support.
For many, the stage of grief is one of the most difficult to handle. It is a long, slow, and painful process. For those who go through it, it is often a journey that can be very difficult to navigate. Sometimes it is because of things they have done. For example, if someone is going through this, then it may be due to something that happened to them in the past.
