Just as we try to love others, do we remember to love ourselves unconditionally? I know often I get caught up in the feeling that nothing I do is good enough, and always just wanting to be better. Consider the idea of fully accepting yourself for who you are, loving yourself flaws and all. When you come to love yourself, you grant yourself the ability to more fully love others as well. Accepting ourselves does not mean that we do not continue to improve.
“Acceptance isn’t stagnation — you will change no matter what. You can’t avoid changing. The question is whether that change comes from a place of acceptance and love, or a place of self-dislike and dissatisfaction. I vote for unconditional love.” – Leo Babauta
