Why is it so important to accept oneself?
First of all, it is because our cells work after the
principle of self love/appreciation. It is the driving force in every single
cell from the moment when the egg cell is fertilized. Negative feelings and
thoughts about ourselves

it is to accept oneself the way we are. It was really a

It is very important to know right from
wrong. Deep inside everybody knows this, but it is very
easy to lie to ourselves when we want to achieve something.
The wounds of the soul prevents us from self
appreciation, so the path to get there goes like
suggested on these pages. The more we grow into true,
humble self appreciation, the more we let go of negative thoughts about
