Self Acceptance

Updated: Oct 11, 2022

Self Acceptance Definition

Acceptance means the act of accepting or the state of being accepted and approved.

Accept Thyself Wholeheartedly and You Will Begin to Win Again and Again in the Game We Call Life.

In the right arena, you will be celebrated, your relationships will flow and you will feel your confidence boosted and affirmed.

Today go where you know you will be supported mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Avoid those individuals, groups, things and places that leave you doubting yourself, leaving you drained and in some cases distraught.

Accept that you may not be “everyone’s cup of tea”, so that is why you must pay attention to those environments that accept you and nurture your mind, body and soul.

Seek to spend as much time in nurturing environments as you can – you will know when you have arrived.

Loving the skin that you are in does not come easily, therefore self-acceptance can only come about when you come to your senses and realise that “YOU” are in fact “enough”.

You are unique, there is no one like you, and that is ok. Stop comparing yourself to others, ie that you think you are too skinny, you think that you are carrying too much “luscious” weight, this one and that one looks better, talks better, lives better. Enough!

Take the emphasis of others and place it on yourself. You are special, you were blessed with unique talents and skills, think about it - you were given your own set of fingerprints for God’s sake!!!

You are a miracle – the fact is you are a beautiful soul: you are God’s gift to the world!

May you begin to accept yourself more fully, may you accept that you are God’s gift to the world and flaunt it! Starting from today, make yourself happy & enjoy each day that you are here!

As a woman in search of happiness, I accept that I am unique, I am special and deserve love, joy, peace and happiness.
