Are you too self-conscious?

Self-consciousness is a form of egocentricity….we feel all eyes are upon us. It’s called the spotlight effect. However, the attention you get when you notice a large ketchup stain on your blouse or when you slip on a banana peel isn’t the attention you want—it’s embarrassing.

We inherently strive to have others see us the way we want them to. Unfortunately, life has many pitfalls and obstacles to challenge us. In this Self-Coaching episode, you’ll learn that Self-consciousness is relative–the more insecure you are, the more likely you are to spend your time neurotically anticipating and worrying about what people think about you. Learn to explore what can be done to release you from the burden of being neurotically self-conscious.
