feeling undue awareness of oneself, one’s appearance, or one’s actions.

Why do so many selves feel embarrassed, uncomfortable, uneasy, and nervous about awareness of oneself? This week, self conscious people described pain, mind reading, personalization, paranoia, projection, isolation, and a drastic restriction of activities. This self is conscious of a wish that consciousness of self could lead to self-confidence and self-worth, not self-judgment.
