Accept Yourself

“Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning you have been told how you should be. Nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are….

Don’t be obsessed with yourself — but a natural self-love is a must, a basic phenomenon. Only then out of it can you love somebody else. Accept yourself, love yourself.

Nobody else has ever been like you and nobody else will ever be like you; you are simply unique, incomparable. Accept this, love this, celebrate this — and in that very celebration you will start seeing the uniqueness of the others, the incomparable beauty of the others. Love is possible only when there is a deep acceptance of oneself, the other, the world. Acceptance creates the milieu in which love grows, the soil in which love blooms.”

    I’m right there with you. We all struggle with low self-esteem and just when we feel we are beginning to step out of the darkness, comparing ourself to others brings us right back to square one. I wish we all progress towards the journey to self love, I am sure each one of us is appreciated and loved by many 🙂

    Thank you for this ever relevant and inspiring article. I appreciate your advice on the subject. Thanks for your enlightening and encouraging words 🙂
