Self-acceptance quotes

Love and self-acceptance go hand in hand.

.

To love yourself is to accept your full self. This includes your inner critic and inner perfectionist.

.

Self-acceptance is not about giving up. Or surrendering. Or wallowing.

 

To be okay with what’s happening within yourself – even if you don’t like it, this is the practice of self-acceptance.

Not accepting an aspect is our-self, like our inner critic for example, makes us less effective. It disempowers us because it takes us away from our wholeness.

.

It is what it is. Even as it will change, over the course of time. Because everything changes in the passage of time. Even the mountains, the stars and the moon itself.

.

Acceptance doesn’t mean you blindly accept anything and everything. It’s about being with what is – even as that changes.

.

The practice of acceptance puts you in the best position to create change. Or thrive. Even after you make any mistakes.

.

Self-acceptance is: I know I’ll be okay. Even if things go wrong. Even if I make a mistake. Even if I’m not feeling great, I know I’ll be okay.

.

To be free from unpleasant thoughts or emotions, self-acceptance is the key.

Self-acceptance is about treating yourself with the same kind of patience and love – as you would a puppy or kitten.

How would you treat an anxious, fearful puppy or kitten? Can you treat your inner critic the same way?

.

An instant and profound transformation happens when you practise self-acceptance. You’ll discover this transformation when you practise it for yourself.

.

Judgement is the opposite of acceptance.

.

When we are anxious and fretting, we are less inclined to be loving or accepting of ourselves. Our inner critic or inner perfectionist demands that we get over it. Immediately. We stand in judgement of ourselves. Yet that is very moment when we need self-acceptance the most.

.

When we release ourselves from judgement, the practice of acceptance flows easily. And we return to our full capacity for problem-solving and rational thought.

.

There’s no magic pill for acceptance. It is a practice, something you cultivate over a period of time.
