Accepting yourself, and esteeming yourself is the biggest challenge there is, but also the most important of all.
Often fluctuating, self-acceptance is essential for your mental and emotional well-being.
However, it has happened to us at all times when another to doubt ourselves, less like 💔 seeing ourselves for some to hate ourselves.
However, self-acceptance is your superpower, it is your strength that will allow you to act, to have confidence in yourself and to affirm the person that you are.
Without self-acceptance, you will not be able to go very far in your projects and you will never feel at peace with yourself.
Through this article, I would like you to understand the importance of accepting yourself and giving yourself some keys to loving yourself as you are.
The importance of accepting yourself.
What image do you have of yourself? How do you look at yourself? Is your self-image positive or negative?
Concretely, do you accept yourself? Are you proud of who you are (both physically and mentally)?
Are the answers to these questions positive or negative? If your answers are negative it means that you do not accept yourself and this will or already pose problems for:
- to love you
- believe in your skills and successes
- have a fulfilling personal and emotional life
- act, undertake
- to take decisions
- dare despite the fear
- take your place
- have harmonious relations
- dare to say things, clearly express your ideas
If you don’t accept yourself, this might be how you behave:
- you don’t dare to act
- you are afraid of failure
- you have negative thoughts
- you do not assert yourself in front of others
- you have a bad image of yourself
- you have a malaise
- you have a difficult relationship
- you blame yourself inside
- you feel inferior to others
- you depreciate yourself
- you feel unable to accomplish things
- you procrastinate
10 ways to practice self-acceptance
Self-acceptance is learning to love yourself – inside and out. It’s about letting go of the things you can’t change and enjoying what makes you unique. However, being comfortable in your own skin is not always easy. Here are some ways to practice self-acceptance in your daily life:
1. Recognize what makes you unique
Thinking about the things that make you special is a good place to start. Ask yourself how these differences would benefit you in the future and how they add value to your life.
2. Let go of the things you can’t change
It’s important NOT to focus on things you can’t change. What might help you would be writing a letter to yourself about the importance of letting go of what you can’t change and welcoming the aspects of yourself that you love?
3. Identify your strengths
Make a list of things that you are good at and/or enjoy doing (e.g. sports, music, art, etc.). Doing these activities regularly can help you feel more confident in your skills and talents.
4. Set goals
Set some realistic goals for yourself, then make a plan for yourself to achieve them. (It might also help you have higher self-esteem.) Consider rewarding yourself when you reach a goal!
5. Celebrate your accomplishments
Make a list of everything you’ve accomplished so far and regularly add your successes to it. Place your list where you can see it often. Be proud of yourself!
6. Prepare in advance
If you can, try to avoid people and/or things that interfere with your self-acceptance. Memorize a few thoughts that you can repeat to yourself if you ever start to doubt your worth (these are sometimes called “positive statements”).
7. Think positive thoughts
Remember to treat yourself with kindness and turn your negative, self-critical thoughts into positive ones. Avoid being too demanding of yourself and comparing yourself to others.
8. Be kind to yourself
Think of some activities you could do to spoil yourself and to spend quality time with yourself (such as taking a nice hot bath, going for a walk in nature, etc.). It is also important that you take care of yourself by eating a good diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising regularly.
9. Get involved
Volunteer, find a part-time job or try a new extracurricular activity to learn more about yourself, what you love to do, and the things you’re good at.
10. Find people who can support you
You can always share how you are feeling with people you trust, such as family or friends. (You might even ask them to name two or three things they like about you.)
