Accepting Yourself



“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”
Carl R Rogers

A lot of the work I have done on myself as an adult has, in fact, been about learning to accept and appreciate myself, and not just about how to be different and better,


Most of us have things about ourselves we wish we could improve. Making change is difficult – many of our habits are deeply ingrained, and certain aspects of ourselves, such as core personality attributes, may be immutable. But many more things can be changed, It is never too late, and with effort and determination, it is possible to be the person you want to be.


I think the important thing to remember about self improvement in general is that they are not miracle solutions. If anything, they are tools to bring us back to who we are, not tools to make us someone different than we are, in our core. Used well, self-help helps us know ourselves, accept ourselves, and even love ourselves……

Accept yourself, your strengths, your weaknesses, your truths, and know what tools you have to fulfill your purpose.”
Steve Marabol
