self-acceptance

Self-Acceptance leads to freedom  because one is no longer tied down by the bonds of expectation and demand of society/ others. A person can still desire and hope for certain outcomes; but with acceptance, he frees himself from the result, whatever it may be. Acceptance is the gift of freedom to others and to oneself.

If you accept yourself, regardless of what you do, how stupid you look, what stupid things you say – if you deeply, truly know who you are inside, know yourself, love yourself – you can do anything and know it doesnt define you. No matter what anyone else thinks about you, what you look like or what you do/say, you know you’re ok  🙂
