The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it is taking place at all. The highest communication is deep self-acceptance. How do we know that we have not yet arrived at a deeper self-acceptance? This can first be recognized when we are having difficulty and not at peace with others. If there is someone in your life right now that you just can’t seem to get along with, it’s because there’s a part of yourself that you’re failing to see, understand and recognize.
Being silent about how you feel or what you feel is the beginning of emotional disturbance. This doesn’t mean to let it all out or wear your emotions on your sleeve either.
Let’s talk about what’s really on your mind. Your past mistakes are meant to guide you – not to define you. It’s vital to talk about them. Being vulnerable is not a weakness, you can trust in being transparent. It’s critical to make peace with your past so that it doesn’t disturb your present. Hiding away from yourself and not talking is not a way to protect yourself – only to hurt yourself further.
It’s not necessary to overthink things either, it’s alright and perfectly acceptable to not know all the answers. Slow down and pay attention to the life that is trying to weave its way into your present awareness
Try to retrain your mind to accept life as it is, rather than as you think it is supposed to be.
Becoming beautiful means beginning to accept yourself as you are – deeply so. One day you will realize that material things mean precious little, and all that truly matters is the well-being of the people in your life – including yourself.
It’s possible to be perfectly happy without that meaning that everything in your life is perfect. In fact, it’s not necessary to have achieved anything at all to still be someone very special.
May the space between where you are and where you want to be not scare you, but inspire you. Acceptance means to offer genuine presence to yourself in every moment, and paradoxically that is the beginning of changing into the person you aspire to become. The best self-acceptance is the love for yourself that makes you a better person, without having to change into to someone other than the self of your highest aspirations.
