How to Achieve Self acceptance

 How to Achieve Self acceptance

I have learnt through life that self acceptance is the source of true happiness. Accepting yourself boosts your self esteem and builds your confidence. You are able to accomplish much in life and easily achieve your goals. Self acceptance oozes out of us, it radiates to all around us.
Self acceptance is mirrored in our action towards ourselves and towards others. The level of our self acceptance will determine how we choose to be treated by those around us and how we treat others. A high level of self acceptance gives birth to respect towards others and to ourselves. This is a must have to everyone.

How do we achieve self acceptance?

Avoid comparing ourselves to others.
Comparing ourselves to others generates pain because there will always be someone who is better looking than you, someone who has achieved more or someone who is better than you in one aspect or another. Do your best, look your best and live within your means.

Be grateful.
Be grateful for who you are, what you have and what you have achieved. Count your blessing and achievements more often than your failures. Take failures as leaning points and stepping stones in your journey.

Learn to forgive yourself and others.
We all make mistakes in life. Forgiving your self is the best thing that can happen to you. You will also find it easy to forgive others in the process. A non forgiving heart is a cancerous heart.

Respect other people and their views.
You do not have to agree with everyone nor their views, but learn to respect them. It is a high maturity of self acceptance.
