We all struggle with self acceptance some more than others. In todays society it is easy to get caught up in your talents, hight and weight. People do not know who they are anymore if their talent, hight, or weight did not classify them. I see this in a lot of athletes. They stop plying their sport and they are no longer a “athlete.” They thought being an “athlete” described them. You are not your hight, weight or talent. You are you; nothing else is better than you. Wanting to be someone else is a waste of your time. You will never be anyone else than you or have anyone else’s life but yours. Being you is good enough. You need to love yourself unconditionally because you are the only person there for yourself at the end of the day. You need to love and accept yourself without question. If you are not at that point where you can do so it is alright because I was once there and we all go through this issue. Accepting yourself is a big step, but it is one of the most important things you will ever do in your life. We all want other people to accept us on some level in life but looking for other peoples approval is a waste of your time. You can not change what other people think about you only they can and the same goes for you only you can change what you think of yourself. What other people think of you is not your problem it is theirs. Do not lose your real self in trying for others to accept you. Once you have accepted yourself and your flaws no one can ever use them against you. What you think of yourself is far more important than what anyone else may even think about you. To be truly happy with your life lays in the acceptance of yourself. If you love and accept yourself you have no competition. Either way at the end of the day it is what it is, it is up to you to make it happen and change your life.
