The moment you accept yourself for who you are loving yourself unconditionally:
1. You find emotional freedom.
2. You have courage to speak your truth without fear of judgment.
3. You find the real you.
4. You release the need for outside validation.
5. It becomes easier for you to heal, grow, and evolve.
6. You attract more authentic relationships and people who accept you for who you are.
Who are you, really? If you’re like most people, the face you present to
the world might not reflect who you are inside. We have personas we
adopt for work, for strangers, and even loved ones.
Imagine what life would be like if you could be more authentic. If you could be comfortable enough in your own skin to be precisely who you are—all the time.
The key to a happier and more authentic life lies in how we see ourselves. When you’re able to accept who you really are, you find you’re ready to share that person with the world, and the world will be more accepting of you in return.
The moment you accept yourself, you discover the real you
When you accept yourself for who you truly are, magic happens. You’ll discover real happiness and joy in your life.
Pretending to be something you aren’t is exhausting. If you’re having trouble figuring out who you are deep down, make a list of your qualities and then ask yourself if they are rooted in your life values.
If not, you may discover that trait
is one you masqueraded because society expected it of you.
The moment you accept yourself, you quit looking for validation outside yourself
When you stop seeking after things or other people to make you happy, what you’re left with is yourself. Recognize true happiness comes from within.
Accept the good within you, as your ‘real self.’ Share this person with the world, and you’ll ring with an authenticity that will draw others to you.
You’ll suddenly find you no longer need a materialistic lifestyle to prove who you are.
You’ll stop seeking validation from others that you are enough.
This new, authentic you will draw new people and opportunities to you that will enrich your life in ways they couldn’t have before.
The moment you accept yourself, you fix your relationship with you
Having trouble because you’re finding aspects of yourself you don’t like? You’re never going to be happy until you accept you, where you are right now. With the acceptance of yourself, warts and all, you’ll discover self-love.
To do this might take some work on past issues and practicing forgiveness. Be patient with yourself as you work through the process. It’ll come. When it does, you’ll be living a happier and more authentic life.
Isn’t it time the world saw you for who you really are? Embrace the real you and discover the life you’re meant to live!
WHEN YOU ACCEPT YOURSELF QUOTES
“No human being is ever going to love you more than you love yourself.”
“Self motivation leads to acceptance of thyself.”
“If you can't accept something, you need to change it.
“It is your life, accept the challenge.”
When you can accept others for who they are, you are FREE!
Think about that person in your life who drives you absolutely crazy. Whether co-worker, acquaintance, or family member, there’s nothing worse than having to deal with someone who gets under your skin. The problem is, you can’t change the people around you.
You can, on the other hand, change you. By learning to accept people for who they are, you’ll find your interactions with these individuals will become easier. You’ll be more easygoing, and less likely to get bent out of shape. In short, you’ll become happier and experience far less stress.
Sound too easy? It really is. Just start with these three steps for accepting people who they are:
Recognize Everyone is Unique
When we feel secure in how we’re living our lives, it’s natural to think others should do as we do. For example, if you went to college, got a degree, and then got a job, you might expect your children to follow the same path.
The truth is, not everyone’s path is going to look like yours. Your child may not be suited to college or has other ambitions after high school. Does this make them wrong? When we recognize everyone is unique and has their own path to follow, it becomes easier to accept them for who they are.
The moment you accept yourself and others...
It’s Okay to Disagree.
Sometimes we see someone we love making choices we’re not comfortable with. Going back to the college example, maybe we’re worried that if our child takes a year off to travel to “find themselves” that they’ll never go back to school. When the person you disagree with is an adult, and they’re not doing something to physically harm themselves or someone else, it becomes time to back off.
Rather than feeling threatened
or disappointed in their choices, ask yourself what you might be able
to learn from them. Their unique point of view is something to
celebrate. After all, if we all made the same decisions all the time,
things would be pretty dull.
What About You?
In the end, if you’re caught up in how other people are living their lives, you’re focusing your attention in the wrong place. The only person you can actually change is you.
Stop worrying about what everyone else is doing and start paying attention to different choices you could make that would create more joy in life. With this in mind, you’ll find it easier to accept the people around you. Who knows, maybe you’ll feel a little happier with who you are as well
Life is much more enjoyable the moment you accept yourself and others for who they are.
