Does everyone in society have to be perfect? Is perfection pretend or reality? Does perfection exist? In my book, there is no such thing as perfection. Everyone has his or her flaws. Everyone has issues. If this is true then why do so many people try to act or be perfect in life? If it doest exist then no one should try to act as if they are perfect. Right?
Unfortunately, many people in this world fall into the traps that society lays upon them. What I mean by this is acceptance. Feelings like you need to please or act like others to be accepted.
This is not so my friends. So far, in mu articles I have been trying to explain that in order to make the power of positive thinking work for you, you need to love and accept yourself. All these things will fall in place once you get on the right track.
If you try to be accepted by acting like something your not then you are going to be happy with yourself because inside you know that this is not the true you. In order to be positive you need to not what others think about you its all about how you feel about yourself.
In order to feel good about yourself, you need to accept yourself. You must look at yourself positively and realize that there is no such thing as a perfect person. There is no need to feel a sense of embarrassment because you may not fit society’s make believe dream person.
What is most important in our life is that we try to master the daily troubles that come our way, and overcome the problems that have already occurred in our lives. Now this should be considered a triumph. If you are unhappy with yourself then you need to do something about it. Ignoring your problems and emotions, not dealing with them, is the easy way out, to face them and deal with then are accomplishments. We grow mentally, physically and spiritually by accepting ourselves.
Remember, it is not how we look on the outside that is important; it is how we feel on the inside that matters most. In this life in order to survive, it is important that we accept ourselves for who we are, feel good about ourselves and carry an inner strength so we can live a healthy, happy and productive life.
When we are young, we have people in our lives that help to mold us. They help us develop the strength, wisdom and knowledge we need to survive in this world. Yet many of us forget what we learned and focus on what is unimportant, such as how we look on the outside.
The results are in the end you are going to end up feeling emotionally drained and unable to live a successful and positive life. Everyone is on this earth for a reason. We need to pass on what we have learned along to others.
It is selfish and pure laziness to pity ourselves because you may not have that model figure. You must learn to accept and love yourself. You are not alone, many people feel unhappy with themselves.
To live with and accept yourself, you need to open your heart and listen to what it is telling you inside. Your heart will never lie to you because it only tells the truth. You must have the courage to ask your heart why you refuse to love yourself the way you are.
Usually when we are unhappy with ourselves, it is because we are embarrassed about whatever we are trying to hide. Your body is not something you should be ashamed of having. You need to help yourself by accepting yourself and loving yourself for who you are. This is the first step in order to heal yourself and feel good about you.
Ask yourself, what level of self-approval you have I reached on a day-to-day basis? I have listed seven steps to help you learn to love and accept yourself.
STEP 1- accept yourself for who you are and learn to love yourself for whom you are a person
STEP 2- understand yourself mentally, physically and spiritually
STEP 3- learn to control your mind, body and emotions
STEP 4- strengthen your inner self and make it apparent to others
STEP 5- begin changing what you do not like about yourself
STEP 6- notice the change in your self-esteem and self-confidence
STEP 7- have a tremendous amount of pride in yourself
People realize that to change and strengthen themselves they must accept themselves and learn how to live with themselves in a productive manner. You need to look at life in a positive way. You need to say to yourself, “OK, I’m not happy with the person, I have become. I need to change and this is what I am going to do about it.” Stop being lazy. This is the first step to healing and strengthening our souls and self-esteem. Be proud in who you are. Be thankful each morning that you can wake up and feel the warmth of the sun and the beauty that surrounds us all.
