self love and self-acceptance.
Where does self-acceptance come from? How can one truly love oneself?
You can only truly love yourself once you get to know and truly understand yourself.
So try cutting out the things that don’t matter, the things you don’t need. Toss out your TV, stop pursuing material things, worrying about what your peers think about you, get off facebook, and just sit still and be quiet.
The more you cut out the bad, meaningless, pointless stuff in your life, the closer you will come to understand yourself. Cut out all the illusions, peal the ‘onion’ layer by layer until you get to the core, YOU. Get to know the real you, and from there you’ll learn to love yourself.
Meditate everyday for at least 8 minutes. Write your thoughts down and reflect on it whenever you get anxious or uncomfortable.
“Where does self-acceptance come from?”
-The subconscious mind. Mostly the ego.
“How can one truly love oneself?”
-Forget about the how, just do it. If it needs a how it’s not truly love.
“How can one feel good about oneself no matter what?”
-Just choose to feel good. Believe it or not, but it’s really that simple. That’s actually all there’s to it. Just feel good, right here right now, and keep doing it. If you rely on exterior shit to give you feelings, well then you’ll never have any lasting happiness.
“and how can one feel be one’s best companion?”
-I do not understand this question.
“What do you think are the best ways we can build self-acceptance and learn to love ourselves?”
-It’s NOT about building self-acceptance. It’s ALL about REMOVING the shit that’s getting in the way.
So to get your self-acceptance back, just remove that junk data from your ego.
As for self-love, it doesn’t really exist. True love is just love, it’s not love for the self or for another individual or for an object or event. True love is all-encompassing, it has no target.
@jpete011, Oh my god it’s the funky shit!
Great post, man. Really hit the nail right on the head.
@kidvisions, for me, the biggest thing that helped me was discovering my uniuqness. once i realized that everyone has there own strengths and weaknesses, I also realized that I wouldnt want to be anyone else. Accepting yourself is a big thing too i think
