Many of us have the inner critic that likes to tells us what a screw up we are or how we are always going to be a failure when trying new things. Some people also have the tendency put themselves down, assume they are going to be rejected , or that they do not deserve the things their heart is telling them to go after. When we go through the act of putting ourselves down, we are in turn rejecting ourselves, rather than sending ourselves love. Anytime we talk bad about our looks, our intelligence, or our accomplishments, we are telling ourselves that the way we currently are as a person, is unacceptable. When we are in constant put down mode, we in turn have a low sense of self or low self-esteem. In order to feel at peace or find a higher sense of self, we must first learn to accept who we are at any given moment.
True self acceptance is absolute love and kindness at all times, without judgement. So, in order to feel at peace with ourselves, kindness and self-compassion should be embraced daily. We as human beings need to give ourselves that ability to be real. To be real is to be imperfect. And being imperfect is what we all truly are. Each of us has things about ourselves or our situations that we may not love at the moment. But, as people we must learn the ability to embrace being imperfect. Instead,we all just need to be ok being real. Be real with your failures, your flaws, and the circumstances that leave you not being the person you thought you should be at a certain age. Instead, love the person you are now and not the person you are hoping to become. We may not be where we want to be, or look the way we want to but that doesn't mean we can't love ourselves unconditionally. By learning to love yourself unconditionally, you will find confidence in your weaknesses and will realize that no one is going to judge you for them. Once, you learn to release judgement from yourself, you will notice that the world around you feels more peaceful. Acceptance of self, brings you a higher sense of self. A higher sense of self will show you that as you become ok with being real, so will all world around you. Bring acceptance with you each day through both good and bad moments. Make a promise to yourself to always talk good to yourself, and others will begin to do the same. Let go of the inner critic, and be ok with being imperfect.
