Accepting & At Peace with Yourself

By Pamela J. Wells
Published: February 6, 2012

You have to accept yourself and be at peace with yourself without the need for approval from others. When you are able to release the need for acceptance from others, it is so freeing. It is like a heavy weight has been lifted off of you and you don’t get offended when someone says unkind things to you, judges you, or tries to belittle you; and you don’t get your feelings hurt when you are in a relationship with someone and they decide to end the relationship. You accept yourself and are at peace with yourself, regardless of whether that person is in your life or not. Their leaving does not define who you are. It is the mind that creates delusions, that creates meaning out of things that have no meaning. Accept yourself, believe in yourself, and do not try to convince yourself to accept yourself. It does not work. You have to feel it, believe it, and know it.
