“It doesn’t matter what we do until we accept ourselves. Once we accept ourselves, it doesn’t matter what we do.”
Many of us yearn for acceptance of those around us. Don’t we? Well, we all face those ultimate challenges in life where we desire to be loved and appreciated by one and all. We get affected to such an extent that we often forget that each of us is unique and special in his/her own ways. Does that happen with you too? At the end, the real beauty lies in embracing your own flaws and imperfections. Thus, we should live the life the way we want to and always craving for others acceptance isn’t desirable.
The real trouble begins when we start relying on what people think of us. When we let people allow the central stage in our lives, we invite expectations, anxieties and even depression sometimes. When we allow others to control our lives, we unconsciously start getting influenced by their opinions and decisions. We then start to imitate their ways and fitting into their lifestyles become our sole aim. Hence, the vicious cycle begins and we start losing out on what we believe in.
An important question which you need to answer for yourself is that what are the unique qualities which make you shine from within? We are often skeptical about the decisions which we make in life and keep following the crowds around us. To err is human and thus we need to stop worrying about what others would think if we fail. Life is all about taking risks and we shouldn’t depend on others opinions for each and every decision we take in life. Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are. Hence, always do what you believe in as life is too short to live with regrets.
Living life according to your set of rules is the best thing you can do to yourself. You would never be compromising on what you always wanted to do and thus trusting yourself is the best practise.
You couldn’t relive your life, skipping the awful parts, without losing what made it worthwhile. We cannot always let others govern our lives and thus we shouldn’t always live with self doubts. When you start taking responsibility for every action without thinking of what others might think about your life choices, you achieve that state of pure bliss and happiness. Believe me, at the end what really matters is how comfortable and honest you are with your own self.
Depending on others can be destructive if you are low on self confidence and esteem. Life would be a beautiful journey if we start concentrating on what we want in life and not what others want us to do in life. Have you ever lived a single day where you didn’t pay heed to what others around you said? Well, I am sure you haven’t.
Self acceptance is ultimate key to success and true happiness. You cannot always be afraid of trying something new just because you are afraid of failures. We all strive to be perfectionists in everything we do but we need to understand that hardships and failures are part of our lives. Like a rainbow, life cannot just be filled with beautiful colors and therefore inner strength can play an integral role in helping you cope with difficult times in life. Inner strength of the soul is all you need to grow leaps and bounds in your life.
Someone has rightly said that beauty is not in the face but beauty is a light in the heart. Thus, inner strength and courage can shape your personality in many positive ways. You just need to consciously make an effort to stop trying to achieve perfect results for everything you desire to do. You live just once, thus live to the fullest. Simply understand the fact that you cannot impress everyone around you and you would be judged at every point in life. The elevator to happiness is therefore more about possessing the courage to take responsibility for the wrongful choices you make and not cribbing about the lost chances in life.
