Do you Accept or Judge self? Why? How does this make you feel? Are you hard or easy on self? Why? Do you tear self down or lift self up? Why? Are you happy, satisfied with self? Or are you disgusted, tear apart self creating destruction? How do you hide true self so the world doesn’t truly see you? Your imperfections, your scars, your marks, genes, your past, failures, fears, your struggles, your true self? Truly think about this! …..……….
Do others Accept or Judge you? Why? How does this make you feel? How are you judged by others? Why? What is accepted of you by others? Why? Why do you feel your being judged? Why do you feel your accepted? How do you respond to judgements? Why? How do you respond to acceptance? Why? Why does the judgement or acceptance of others matter?
How close are the answers from how you treat self to how others treat you? How different are the answers? Why are they different? Why are they the same? What should change? What should grow? Do you judge self and expect others not to judge you? Fix it! Do you judge others and realized you just judged yourself too? Fix it! Do others accept you as you but you don’t ? Change it, fix it, be better then the self sabotage, self lies, self destruction!
Fix yourself first. You can not fix or change anyone but yourself first. The great thing about self growth, self change, and squashing the self sabotage everything around you just falls into place. You realize what is important and what is not important. I feel we fall into a trap with self because we want to be one way but our actions go the other way. We want to be healthy but we continue to feed the body with foods that are harmful to our health. We continue to pick the lazy, comfortable route to self destruction instead of the hard and uncomfortable route to self growth. You might look at yourself and ridicule self to believing the lies. You might have learned to talk yourself out of moving forward continuously. You have fallen into the routine of justify your fears, your self destruction, creating self lies and a pro at excuses. Your eyes need open to see self for self. So you will be able to squash the self sabotage, self destruction, self hate and learn the importance of self growth, self love, self respect no matter what your journey looks like. What works for me or others will not necessarily work for you. But what will look the same is working towards self change, moving forward, and the transformation of better self!
Acceptance of self leads to acceptance by others. Once you realize your worth. When you realize and understand you can’t change the past and no control of the future. You let go and start to tackle yourself working towards the direction you dream, hope, and wish for (better you). Change occurs. your actions and words start to align! You love self for self and those round you will love you for you. You will stop the self lies, self sabotage, self destruction and you will find your self free from excuses, blaming, judging, and control. You grow and those around you will grow and it will push you to grow. You accept self for self and every day you work to be better. Those around you will do the same. Before you realize all the tiny steps, the baby steps, the big steps you took towards better self all added up to true self transformation of accepting self for self! Accept self NOW!
