A silly example of this quote above: I have a terrible habit of
gnawing at my cuticles when I'm anxious or nervous (which is pretty
often). My boyfriend is disgusted by the nasty habit (as am I) and
reminds me that it's just as bad as when someone picks their nose in public.
The more I thought about his statement (now I've got the awareness),
I've been much more conscious of stopping myself when I bite.
Moral of the story = picking your nose or biting on or around your nails is gross...so stop! But also, once we have awareness regarding something, we also have the ability to change it. Whoo-hoo!
