What does it mean to be self-aware?  According to the Oxford dictionary, it means "knowledge and understanding your character.  

Now, according to "The Self-awareness Guy". he states that self-awareness is a state of being where you deeply understand your own thoughts, emotions & behaviours, how they affect you & the world around you.  When you are self-aware, you are not simply existing or reacting to your environment but living a life that is fulfilling & meaningful.  You are the real you and you do things that reflect who you are deep inside.

Really, there is no great mystery around being self-aware.  It is not about being perfect, far from it, it is about be comfortable with yourself thereby making sure others around you feel the same way.  All it is - is becoming the best possible version of yourself.

So self-awareness for the highly sensitive means recognizing your sensitivity by working on yourself each day, becoming more aware of who you really are as a person, so that you can become the high functioning individual you are meant to be, treating yourself and others with kindness.
