We can be on autopilot in a lot of ways, but we can tell ourselves.
Don’t tell people your problems is sort of a catchphrase for many of us. It’s like saying, “I think I’m having some kind of panic attack” instead of “I’m panicky.” It’s more of a statement of how you feel. It’s not like you’re going to be “faking” it, because if you want to be told your problems, then tell people about it.
I think everyone is on autopilot because they are all in control of their own life. There are so many people with autopilot that can make it all seem like it’s not happening. But this happens more often than not. It happens because the person that controls the autopilot (or someone that controls it) is always on autopilot.
Just because I don’t know how to do it doesn’t mean I don’t know how to help. Not only doesn’t make me more happy, but it makes me more prone to being annoying/trouble-prone. For instance, I’m on autopilot when the autopilot is dead. I’m on autopilot when I’m trying to fix a broken bike that hasn’t moved. I’m on autopilot when I’m trying to fix an old car.
There is a difference between being on autopilot and not using your autopilot at all. In fact, if you are using your autopilot, you should be using it all the time. There are a lot of things that are hard to do and a lot of things that are hard to think about. Being on autopilot is generally a bad thing, so if you are not using your autopilot, you should make sure that you are using it all the time.
The problem with “autopilot” may not be that you are on autopilot, but that you can’t use it. Most people confuse autopilot with “being in a car”. Autopilot is being on autopilot without thinking about where you are going next.
You have to use it all the time because if you don’t use it, you will get stuck in a loop. But the best thing to do is to use it consciously.
In the end though, not being on autopilot is not a bad thing. It’s just a step you should take right now to get you ready to deal with your problems. Even if you’re not on autopilot, you should make sure you are on autopilot.
So it’s time to figure out how you move yourself from “auto-pilot” to “self-awareness”. You have to understand the difference between what’s automatic and what is self-aware. Automatic is like a car which if you try to drive it, it will drive you where you want to go. Self-aware is like a robot. It will drive you as you want to go.
The difference between automatic and self-aware is that the former is like some mindless machine which you can use like a muscle. The latter is a person who has self-awareness. They have the ability to think and make choices.
