Self-Awareness, Self Esteem and Perception

Self-awareness involves being aware of different aspects of the self including traits, behaviors, and feelings. Essentially, it is a psychological state in which oneself becomes the focus of attention.

Self-awareness is one of the first components of the self-concept to emerge. While it is something that is central to who you are. It is not something that you are acutely focused on at every moment of every day. Instead, it becomes woven into the fabric of who you are and emerges at different points depending on the situation and your personality.‚Äč
