How to Practice Loving Self-Acceptance

How to Practice Loving Self-Acceptance

Practicing loving self-acceptance is not something that may come naturally. In fact, it could be a key life lesson that some of us. You may find yourself attracting various experiences that involve this important aspect of what it means to embrace yourself totally.

Many of us long to be accepted for who we are. And so, we go about seeking validation and approval from others. However, the crux is that if we cannot accept ourselves, we cannot expect others to accept us too. Without any self-acceptance, we live in constant fear of being rejected.

“A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.” – Mark Twain

I find it great to learn from movies too.  One of the movies that I watched with my children was Wreck-it Ralph show. Initially, I had found the plot rather slow moving. And so I was not paying full attention to it. But as the movie wore on, I discovered that there were valuable lessons on self-acceptance.

In the movie, Ralph had massive issues accepting that he needs to play the role of a villain in an arcade game. He wants to be the hero or the Good Guy, instead. His adventure eventually leads him to learn the important lesson that he is actually good enough.

Well, my children enjoyed the movie tremendously. They kept reciting the most quotable quote from the movie….

Wreck-It Ralph: I’m Bad, and that’s Good. I will never be Good and that’s not Bad. There’s no one I’d rather be, than me.

Reasons for Self-Rejection

The opposite of acceptance is rejection. If you do not accept yourself fully, you are implicitly rejecting some part about yourself. Any slight criticism from someone else can send your world crashing. You become very sensitive to what others say or think about you. With low self-acceptance, you are likely to experience massive insecurity, uncertainty and doubt.

Here are some common reasons for self-rejection:

  • I am unable to accept my huge nose.
  • I hate myself.
  • I cannot accept that I have made a mistake.
  • I cannot accept who I am.
  • I am such a failure.
  • I reject my looks.

Excessive self-rejection can contribute to outcomes such as self-mutilation, going for multiple plastic surgeries, bulimia, harboring suicidal thoughts and so on. It is only when you stop rejecting yourself that your ability to accept yourself increases.

From Rejection to Self-Acceptance

Self-acceptance can be a horribly uphill battle when we are bombarded by messages promoting standards that are not easily attainable from where we are. Over time, it is possible to become less sure about ourselves when we repeatedly hear that we need an expensive sports car or that we need a bigger bust line, in order to feel complete. Hence, we cannot discount societal or environmental influences.

Where we do not have enough self-acceptance or self-love, we can possibly believe in these messages. We become more susceptible to the subliminal messages contained in some of the advertisements. Notwithstanding, rather than blame external factors, it is our responsibility not to allow our environment affect us, nonetheless.

An innate self-rejection results in the fear of rejection by others. We become inclined to create a self-image that we perceive as agreeable with others. Consequently, we try to do all we can to please others. However, our actions are largely driven by fear. We may appear to be confident on the outside but on the inside, we are really feeling unlovable.

On the contrary, with enough self-acceptance, we are not fretting over something fundamental about ourselves that we would like to change. We already feel complete even though we perceive that we are not perfect. We are willing to embrace ourselves – warts, faults and all. Embracing ourselves and accepting ourselves unconditionally paves the way for greater self-love.

How to Practice Loving Self-Acceptance

With self-acceptance, we are at peace on the inside.

Learn To Accept Yourself Fully

“The greatest success, is successful self acceptance.”- Ben Sweet

Self-acceptance centers you. It grounds you in the essence of who you really are. With self-acceptance, you build an unshakeable foundation from within.

It is not just through watching a movie. I would like my children to learn about self-acceptance. My wish is for them to know how accepted they are, even though they may not always succeed in their school tests.

In the same manner, we should do the same for ourselves. When we meet with failure or are not as perfect as we would like to be, we start by being willing to accept ourselves. The willingness for self-acceptance opens the door to receiving love from the space of our spiritual heart. Through embracing ourselves lovingly on the inside, we become our own best friend.

Encountering difficulties with accepting yourself wholeheartedly? Work with me towards greater self-acceptance and love. 

Love and abundance always,
