Self awareness is the concept of learning about yourself. We all have different traits, behaviors, and feelings. By becomming self aware we are better able to understand why we do things in which the way we do them. We learn, over time, why we act a certain way in certain social and professional circles. We also learn why we feel the way we feel.

As you become more self aware, you are better able to control your life and surroundings, granted, most things you can not control but at least you can come to that realization if you are more self aware.

Psychologist's tout the benefits of getting in touch with your feelings. This makes you a better and happier person. Realize that this act of knowing one's self is a long arduous process and does not happen overnight.
