Having awareness is crucial when you find yourself entering a situation or surrounding that you are unfamiliar with. Being aware before these events happen means you are aware of what you are doing or about to do. It is important to be aware of what is going on around you and how to react for yourself and the well-being of others. Life experiences will help you gain awareness (i.e., what is good or bad, what and whom to trust, and not to trust). If you are not aware of certain characters or situations without thinking of the consequences first, you’ll become vulnerable for others to take advantage of. It is important to be aware of everything that happens in your life to gain the knowledge needed to help make better choices in the future.
