28 – The practice of self-acceptance


(duration 21:49)

Self-acceptance is something you do: the refusal to be in an adversarial relationship with yourself

The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden http://www.nathanielbranden.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=21_23&products_id=35

It’s important to be present to the reality of your behavior, paying attention to internal signals

Accepting doesn’t necessarily mean liking, enjoying, or condoning; denial leaves you stuck, whereas acceptance allows you to move on

Showing compassion for yourself is important; really feeling your feelings is crucial

Surrendering to the reality of what is, to your awareness, is the crux of self-acceptance

Self-acceptance basically means coming to terms with your emotions

If self-acceptance feels impossible, then accept your resistance, or if needed, accept your resistance to accepting your resistance

Acceptance of what is, is the precondition for change
