Acceptance

Recently I read an alarming statistic: Over 85% of adults in the U. S. don’t like themselves. Eighty five percent. Without going into all the data to back this claim, I accept it to be accurate.

This begs a question. Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Do you see a flawed human being, with ugliness inside and out, or do you see God’s creation? I encourage you to see yourself as the latter.

We cannot fully accept others until we have a healthy self-acceptance. You know your personal character defects, and only you can change them. Working on ourselves is the hardest thing we will ever do, but it’s so worthwhile…

Acceptance

Judging others drains you of valuable energy. Accepting people as they are opens the door to new ways of seeing life around us. Our minds are open to new possibilities, new creativity.

If people are jerks, keep them out of your circle of friends and acquaintances. You can’t change their hearts. Only God can do that. By limiting their access to your life, you are protecting yourself while still accepting them as they are. Something to consider…

Self Acceptance…

Many people are suffering from low self-esteem. Past mistakes, hurts and hang ups keep people trapped in their own self-imposed prisons. Release yourself from the lie that you aren’t good enough or acceptable. Work at being your best, doing your best and accepting yourself. The Creator of the universe created each of us exactly how He wanted us. That’s good enough for me…
