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 actually
reduce the life energy.
Many years ago, I came across a book about how important
it is to accept oneself the way we are. It was really a
door opener for me, I discovered how important it is to
be oneself and not the way other people expected of
me, or what the fashion or the perception in the society
say we ought to be. The western culture is constantly
pushing upon us ways of how we should look... The door
into self love is always self acceptance about how we
look the way we are born.
Being honest with oneself, by stopping and
reflecting, open up your eyes to see others also. Admitting
that you do things that does not serve, really make you

who you really are.
Self Love without being selfish leads to enlightenment.
Then we are humble and
proud to be ourselves, knowing all good values that lead
to a good life, not only for yourself, but for everybody
else also. 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 love, the more we let go of negative thoughts about
our selves and others so that we allow them to be where
they are on their path.
