Self-acceptance is a true feeling of happiness about who you are. It does not mean you think you’re perfect, it means you accept yourself, knowing you have strengths and weakness just like everyone else. Self-acceptance means you can get back up when you fall down; you can laugh at yourself; you can see your uniqueness for both both the good and the not so good; you recognize your talents and are proud of what you’re good at; you can make mistakes without feeling – worthless, hopeless or deeply sad; you see your mistakes as part of life; you know you’re still a good person even if you’re not perfect; and when you look in the mirror you truly like the person that you see.
Having good self-esteem is hard for many people, but every person deserves to look in the mirror and like who they see. There are so many effective ways to boost your self-esteem: daily affirmations, surround yourself with people who care about and appreciate you, get out of toxic relationships, pursue a career you feel good about, help others, exercise and take good care of yourself, read books on building self-esteem, and make a list of your accomplishments. If your self-esteem is really struggling, it’s likely holding you back in your personal and professional life, and generally bringing you down.
