I have seen this topic pop up on the internet, but never in a way that I have understood. Could it be that we are all born with some level of self-awareness? Maybe, but not all. We all know how to recognize and name ourselves, but as we age we don’t always know how to see and name others.
For some people that is the natural part of the aging process, but for the rest of us it is something we have to work at. For instance, the more we age, the more we see ourselves as less than our true selves. As we grow older we get wiser and better able to recognize the difference between the real you and your false self. At the same time, we can forget about some of the things we might have done in the past.
For instance, we can forget about all the mistakes we made in the past. Even the ones that never came to any harm are still memories, and are still painful. Because we have the ability to forget about things we’ve done, it is natural to think of that as being a good thing, and so we can be fooled into doing some things that later turn out to be worse than we ever intended. But that’s not the case.

To be honest, I find it hard to believe that you can go through a day and not remember at least some of your previous actions. After all, life is basically a series of events, and by the time we’ve completed our actions, we often have a pretty good sense of what we did, and where we’ve been. And we just can’t stop thinking about it until we do.
But we can. You see, the problem is that we don’t really have a very strong sense of what weve done. All we know is what we believe, and even that is vague. Sure, we might remember doing something, or what we thought we did. But we don’t know if we did anything good or bad, or if we were even aware of what we did until later.
This is where the concept of self-awareness can come in really handy. If we know what we did beforehand, we can see if we didnt do anything bad and we can see if we did something good. This is why it’s so difficult for us to remember things. Our brains simply cant remember anything to the exclusion of what we have already experienced.
I guess the concept of self-awareness would also apply to the concept of “awareness.” If you could see yourself doing something, you could be aware that you are doing something. This is true of all forms of self-awareness. If we could see our own behavior, we could also see the behavior of others.
The concept of self-awareness might sound like the same basic thing as self-awareness, but it is different. The two are related but not identical. Self-awareness is a cognitive process that allows us to see ourselves doing or experiencing certain things while making certain kinds of judgments about ourselves. Self-awareness is the process of self-awareness that allows us to see our own actions without being aware of them. But self-awareness is not the same as self-awareness. The two are separate.
