Unconditional Acceptance of Yourself
From Leo Babauta’s zenhabits:
Many of us are familiar with the idea of loving our spouses, children, or parents unconditionally — and we might even try to practice that unconditional love, though imperfectly.
But do we try to love ourselves unconditionally?
Consider whether you do any of these:
- Criticize your body.
- Feel like you need to improve at things.
- Feel guilty about things you do.
- Feel undisciplined, lazy, unhappy with yourself.
- Not feel good enough.
- Fear that you’re going to fail, because you’re not good enough.
- See yourself as not that good looking.
- Feel bad about messing up.

One Response to “Unconditional Acceptance of Yourself”
Thank you John
Simple yet difficult, unconscious learned behavior is often very resistant to attempts to change it.
Sometimes it just doesn’t feel safe.
The familiar, the known, I can deal with.
This “change”, this compassionate challenge must be little and often.
A new habit!
A new and consistent healing for an old wound, has to be given the full conscious power of my unreserved consent.
Mindful Practice. 🙂
