We often talk about self-awareness and self-love yet we often forget about one of the most important aspects of self-awareness i.e being honest with ourselves. It is a general tendency among humans to neglect their own feelings and suppress their emotions. However, this is not how you should operate as we need to be more open about the things that make us feel uncomfortable. The least you can do to yourself is be honest about your feelings and emotions and not deny them.
I need help
You should have no shame in admitting that you need help. Help can be in any form be it physically, mentally, or medical help. A person shouldn’t shy away from admitting that they have been facing discomforts and problems for quite some time now and are no longer able to deal with it alone.

I made a mistake
It is true that all of us have egos, a big one rather. This often restricts us from admitting our mistakes or facing the consequences of the same. We live in a delusion that we can never go wrong or can never make mistakes. However, this is wrong. Whenever a person makes a mistake, there is deep down some voice for that conscious that keeps on reminding us about the same. Thus, you should not feel shame in accepting your mistakes. Rather you should be proud that you are brave enough to own up to your mistakes.
I care what others think of me
We are repeatedly told to mind our own business and not let any outside noise disturb us. There is a popular saying that people will bark let them bark. However, it is easier said than done. Most of us still care about what people think of us or our actions. Though we should live our lives with the fear of society, you should admit that it affects rather than just portraying that everything is okay to come out as a cool person.
