Self-awareness, which is sometimes also referred to as self-knowledge or introspection, is about understanding your own needs, desires, shortcomings, habits, and everything else that makes you tick. Simply put, it just means to be “aware” of the things that make you who you are. The more you know about yourself, the better you are at adapting to life’s changes. Essentially, the more you pay attention to your emotions and how you work, the better you’ll understand why you do the things you do, your purpose.
