Quote by Sandra Bierig
To accept ourselves as we are means to value our imperfections as much as our perfections.
When people are not accepting toward themselves they are often obsessed with acceptance by others.
When I accept myself, I am freed from the burden of needing you to accept me.
The attitude of unconditional self-acceptance is probably the most important variable in their long-term recovery.
Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward. If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down.
Self-acceptance is the process of being where we are long enough to appreciate where we have been and where we are headed.
The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
Accepting yourself isn't about giving up or settling, throwing in the towel. No. Accepting yourself is about having your own back and never abandoning yourself.
You don't need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
Self-acceptance is involved in this process. You have got to be able to look at both your dark and your light side and not get enamored or depressed by either.
What self-acceptance does is open up more possibilities of succeeding because you aren't fighting yourself along the way.
When you accept yourself, you are freed the burden of needing others to accept you. Don't allow anyone or anything to control, limit, repress, or discourage you from being your true self.
Accept yourself as you are right now; an imperfect, changing, growing and worthy person.
You look at yourself and you accept yourself for who you are, and once you accept yourself for who you are you become a better person.
Be yourself. Accept yourself. Value yourself. Forgive yourself. Bless yourself. Express yourself. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Empower yourself.
Accept yourself as you are. And that is the most difficult thing in the world, because it goes against your training, education, your culture. From the very beginning you have been told how you should be; nobody has ever told you that you are good as you are.
