Can you be too self-aware?
Listen now
Hello lovely listeners, We are back in your ears for the last episode of the year talking all things self-awareness. Self awareness is an incredibly beneficial tool to be able to process emotions, deepen relationships with others and self and move through difficult times. Culturally we see self-awareness as a good thing and with the huge rise in personal development, we know it is so popular to seek self-help. But can we have too much self awareness? At what point does too much introspection create dysunfction and is actually detrimental?  In this ep we deep dive into why and how self-awareness can actually function to create avoidance, dismissal of emotion and lack of trust in self. Essentially creating a self-awareness trap. We hope you enjoy! Also a HUGE thanks for your support this year, we are so appreciative of every one of you who listen, download and share. We see you and we are so grateful to be able to help at least one listener. We wish you a wonderful, gentle and fun festive season.
