One of the most important things I learned during my journey of self-discovery and healing was to accept myself. Somewhere along the journey of my life, I started to see the flaws in myself and that was all I was able to see. From looking in the mirror to looking within, all I saw was what was wrong.
“Accept yourself for all that you are and that you’re not.” -Niki Meadows
Learning to accept myself was one of the best gifts I could ever give myself. It wasn’t something that happened over night but something I learned to do over time. I learned the difference between wanting to change and wanting to grow. I began to value the things that made me different and set me apart. I stopped focusing on things that made me feel like I wasn’t good enough and focused on my strengths. Once I grew my sense of self-worth I was able to strengthen the areas I hadn’t been confident enough to work on. This empowered me to connect with myself like never before.
Have you started your journey of self-acceptance? What have you learned to value about yourself? I’d love to celebrate with you in the comments.
Sending you lots of love! ❤
