Day 1606: Self conscious

I am very conscious that many selves have shared being self conscious this week, in individual and group therapy.

Yourself, are you conscious of the meaning of “self conscious?”

feeling undue awareness of oneself, one’s appearance, or one’s actions.
“I feel a bit self-conscious parking my scruffy old car”
synonyms: embarrassed, uncomfortable, uneasy, nervous

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.

Should I feel self conscious about today’s photos?








I don’t think cats are particularly self-conscious.

Here’s Ellen being self conscious:

I am conscious that I, myself,  love comments from my readers.

Conscious gratitude to all who helped me create this self-conscious post and to you — of course! — for being yourself, here and now.

Minutes after I published this post, I became conscious of today’s New York Times piece on being self conscious.

Here’s a tip for operating your blog. Start by reconnecting with your title and with a photo you took recently.


I haven’t opened that book, so I don’t know which tips for operating my home are in there.

However, here are my personal tips for operating your home:

  • Learn about the systems.
  • Maintain the systems.
  • Repair and/or replace systems in a timely fashion.
  • Use your personal home-operating skills wisely.
  • If you need help from experts, find trustworthy ones and treat them fairly.
  • Don’t allow incompetent people to take over operating your home.

If you think I’m also writing about my homeland right now…


Let’s see what other tips I found when I was operating my iPhone camera at home yesterday.
