How can somone break the feeling of self consciousness?

We have a lot of influences in the world these days resulting from media, over exposed celeberties, and models. We look at them and try to look “in”. How can we conqure this feeling of wanting to fit in. When your having a day when you feel fat or somwhat ugly what is a trick to getting your confidence back on track?


  1. It helps to realize that there really is no self because we were born and we die and because our lives our finite within infinite time they’re really just a blink of an eye so just live and don’t worry about some intangible self.

  2. We are what we are and who we are so I would never compare myself with anyone else. What would the world be like if everybody was the same?
    Write down on a piece of paper what you THINK your inadequacies are. For instance, if you think or feel like you’re a little overweight and unattractive, write down, “I am NOT overweight. I am beautiful and anyone with love to have me as their own”.
    Post that note in several places around the house. Above your monitor, on the refrigerator door, on the bathroom mirror, and on the front and back door of the house. You will constantly see the note and it will reinforce in your mind that you are not overweight and you ARE beautiful and you’ll start believing it because it’s true.
    The mind is a powerful tool to use when you apply a positive mental attitude.
    Read the book listed in my sources. It’s invaluable and can be practically applied to almost every facet of your life.

  3. Be Krishna Conscious (God Conscious)that is really the only way to overcome this so called self consciousness or false ego. FOr info on how to. Read Bhagavad Gita as it is By Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada. Now I know what to put my mind on and it isn’t me.

  4. Look in the mirror and laugh out loud, it puts things into perspective. Life is a fantastic beautiful thing, it is society which is the joke.

  5. I rethinking the basic nature of self consciousness is the best way to get over it. Self consciousness can be reduced to the fear that we may be inadequate in some way or another, and this will somehow lead to some form of rejection. If you are constantly comparing yourself to others, you will become side-tracked and pay less attention to those around you. Instead, try to focus on the situation at hand, and let go of the fear that you are inadequate in some way, because often these fears are products of your imagination. So don’t let them become self-fulfilling. Instead of worrying about what you can’t do and who you can’t look like, put as much of your energy as you can into figuring out what you are good at and put it into action. Often, the people who are most admired- internally as well as externally- are confident in who they are. It takes too much energy trying to be someone else, and others will take note of this. Become more interested in your surroundings, and focus your attention on others around you rather than on yourself, so your body language will be more open, you will have more to say, you will smile more, and more people will want to be around you.

  6. A way to fight self-consciousness is to keep reminding yourself that everyone else is probably self conscious too and so they are too busy worrying about themselves to care about you in that way. In everyone’s mind, they are the center of attention. That’s why we feel self conscious- because we are the center of attention to ourselves. But to everyone else, you’re just another “normal” person around them and they are probably worried that YOU won’t think THEY are normal.
