I Wonder Why Acceptance of Ourselves Is So Difficult

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 264 People

    I Think

    I really think its because we are wired and created with the knowledge of what we could be .  We see the end but all that is reality is a glimpse of it so we always have that space in back of our mind saying "hey why am I not this or that".  Plus there...

    Hmm..

    I really do wonder why the acceptance of ourselves is so difficult.  Because, they say that you can not love someone without loving yourself first.

    What's the point of physically judging others?

    The only thing it does it make us judge ourselves. Why do other people feel the need to show their self insecurities? It only makes those less attractive or less desirable feel mor insecure. Physicality shouldn't matter. Only what type of a person you are should.

    Almost Figured Out?

    This is a question I ask myself often and I reach the same conclusion every time. I think that the reason people have a difficult time accepting themselves is because for years they are berated, degraded and mistreated by others. From the minute we are born we are conditioned to...

    "acceptance"......................

    Acceptance is the key, if I was"nt so accepting I would not have any friends at all! I am not here to judge here or to be judged. I am here to listen and share. I am not a doctor and any advice that I give is purely my opinion. After all everyone has one 1

    Accept It Already

    There is no reason for a person not to accept themselves, I will always accept who I am...and if for some reason I do not like a certain aspect of myself I will change it. I figure you have to accept yourself in order to function correctly.

    Acceptance Of Ourselves

    I believe it is because what has been said to us throughout our lives and the subconscious thinks about the negative instead of the positive when it is supposed to be the other way around.
