    Discussing Factors of Self-Awareness

    Self-Awareness is defined as: In philosophy of self, self-awareness is the experience of one's own personality or individuality. It is not to be confused with consciousness in the sense of qualia. While consciousness is being aware of one's environment and body and lifestyle, self-awareness is the recognition of that awareness.

    ‘Self-awareness’ centers on recognizing and managing our emotions.
    “The term self-awareness can likely be traced back to Freud and Jung, but in the modern parlance, I think it arrived back on the radar around the time Daniel Goleman published 'Emotional Intelligence' nearly two decades back,” says John Duffy, a clinical psychologist, and author.


    “In effect, self-awareness is the recognition of one's own emotional state at any given point in time,” Duffy says. “The argument suggests that we are, far too often, wholly unaware of the emotional state we are currently in, and the degree to which that state influences our behavior and thought process. To the degree that we can manage our emotional states, we are better able to manage these other elements of our lives as well.”


    Amy McManus, a marriage and family therapist adds that “self-awareness is [also] the ability to look at your own words and actions from a perspective outside of yourself; to see yourself as others see you.”


    In this sense, we can see how self-awareness is a way of introspection that doesn’t shut the world out but rather brings it in for assessment against one’s own feelings and behaviors. It entails, as Katie Krimer, a licensed clinical social worker describes it, “meta-cognition: the ability to think about thinking [and] implies the ability to recognize ourselves as we see ourselves, but also to understand how others may see us based on what we know about human behavior.”

    "Post-Release" 40 Tons & The Story of Corvain Cooper

    "Post-Release" 40 Tons & The Story of Corvain Cooper

    Part 2 "Post-Release" 40 Tons & The Story of Corvain Cooper

    On the 28th of January 2013, Corvain Cooper was in his home. That day, he was accompanying his eldest daughter to her drill team competition. While in his car, about to exit his driveway, federal agents appeared.

    One of Corvain’s childhood friends was under arrest. The friend gave authorities 100 names in exchange for a reduced sentence. His name was among them. Corvain dealt in cannabis as a younger man, but he had been out of the game for years. So many, in fact, that he was a few short months away from the statute of limitations. So, he refused the plea deal and fought the charge in court. The system punished him for that choice.

    He was found responsible for the entirety (40T) of the cannabis transported by the group. Under California’s Three Strikes law, he was sentenced to life imprisonment. Since sentencing, his "Three Strikes" felonies have been retroactively reduced to misdemeanors. If Corvain went on trial today, he would not receive a life sentence.

    “When he was sent to prison for the rest of his life for selling marijuana, Corvain Cooper was 34 years old, a father to two young daughters, ages 4 and 8, a fiancee, a son, a friend, and a small business owner selling clothing and footwear.” (Change.org)
