Self control is a powerful tool that can lead to a more productive and successful life. But when we are over-controlling ourselves, we may have a detrimental effect on our health and our relationships.
Self-control is one of those things that seems to have a lot of overlap with the idea of “control.” It’s about being able to let go of some things without taking yourself too seriously. However, self-control is a much more complex issue than that. For example, one reason why we tend to over-control ourselves is that we have a tendency to worry about so many things, but we tend to have a hard time relinquishing that worry.
Yes, this applies to many things. For example, my mother was a control freak, and I am one to boot. So while it’s okay to admit that you have a hard time letting go of your worries, it may not be helpful to take it to the next level and start worrying about things that you are not even worried about.
I think the biggest reason so many people lack the ability to let go of their worries is because they are worried about so many things. I am talking specifically about fear of getting sick. For example, I have a fear of getting sick. I’m not sure why, but I am scared to death that I’d be sick. I’m also a control freak, and I have a hard time letting go of that fear.
People in general are afraid of getting sick. If you are not worried about getting sick, you cannot let go of it. You can’t think of it as a worry, because you have no control over it. People with self-awareness are able to give themselves the freedom to let go of their worries to let go of other things.
To be clear, self-awareness doesn’t mean you’re always going to be able to let go of your self-loathing. But it does mean that your mind can be open to the idea that you’re not going to get sick. That is the only way to be able to let go of it.
You are not “not sick”, you are “not going to get sick.” You are aware that you can’t let go of it, but you are not letting go. There is a difference.
Self-awareness is a state of being in which one is able to be aware of one’s own thoughts and to feel compassion for oneself. It means you’re not going to get so self-conscious that you think about all the other people thinking about you, so you can let go and just enjoy yourself.
The self-awareness is a state of being in which you are aware of yourself and are able to feel compassion for yourself. Self-awareness in and of itself does not mean that you are unable to be selfish, but that you are aware of the fact that you are selfish, and you are able to feel compassion for yourself instead of letting that continue to happen.
If you’re really interested in getting better at controlling your behavior, a good place to start is to ask yourself if you’re doing it right.
