Self-acceptance allows us to take control of our lives, allows us to move on from the past, gives us confidence. Self-acceptance shows others our need for respect. Self-acceptance gives us empowerment, but most of all it allows us to bring peace back into our lives, so that we get to choose the life we want.
Self-acceptance becomes the building blocks and foundations of a better life. Through self-acceptance and learning to see ourselves as us, and being happy with who we are, puts us on a more positive path. Although it’s a given that we will make mistakes, self-acceptance gives us the confidence to identify and deal with those.
Learning to emotionally focus and stay in the present having dealt with certain aspects of our past, allows us to rid ourselves of any guilt we may have. But it’s important we let go of the past, because without letting go of the past, we cannot live comfortably in the present.
Learning to concentrate on our own life and not on other people, will also help contribute to self-acceptance. We must learn to look at our own uniqueness and be proud of who we are.
