If you really want acceptance from others, first accept yourself.We human beings are full of emotions and these emotions play an important role for us in every field, in every direction, in every relationship even at every turn of life. When we try to strengthen ourselves emotionally, then somewhere we want people to accept us. We also feel more confident in ourselves when people show their acceptance of us. We always try to make ourselves worthy that the world accepts us but sometimes we forget that first, we should accept ourselves as we are.
This does not mean that we stop trying to improve ourselves and just start considering ourselves completely or perfectly. Recognizing our shortcomings and improving ourselves by improving them is a sensible step and we must adopt it. But at the same time, we should take care that we and every person in the world have come to this world with some shortcomings and some merits. At the same time, our life is given by different circumstances and there are many elements that make our life and us, so first learn to accept what we are.
Not accepting yourself means living a pretentious life, and if life is to be lived to the fullest, then one has to stop showing off and keep trying to improve yourself by accepting yourself. You will see that without any effort people and the world will accept you as you are because now you have learned to accept yourself.
This is my thread for TOW Acceptance.
