2 Telling my story
Self-awareness involves regular self-reflection. Self-reflection is a way of assessing yourself – your thoughts and actions, a bit like looking into a mirror and describing what you see.
It is important to make an honest assessment of what you see, and feeling uncomfortable isn’t a bad thing as it focuses our attention on what we need to change. However, self-reflection is more effective if you can examine your thoughts and feelings without criticism or defensiveness.
