Your sense of self is your awareness of being a unique, individual human being who's not dependent on anyone else's opinion or approval to determine self-worth.  A healthy sense of self allows you to experience true freedom of self-expression, which makes space for contentment, happiness, peace, and fulfillment. Lacking a healthy sense of self may lead to challenges such as anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

The Sense of Self Method teaches us how to restore our sense of self so that we can live life to the fullest.
