What is self-awareness?

Being able to understand and share your character, interests, strengths, needs, and goals with others. Ideally, being self-aware allows you to…

  • Explain your wants and needs to others.
  • Better understand your strengths and abilities.
  • Solve problems, set goals, and accept consequences.


  • Increases trust in your abilities, qualities and judgment.
  • Strengthens your ability to speak up for what you need.
  • Allows you to accept differences and understand the needs of others.
