Today through this article we are going to discussing about the one of the most important and
difficult terms of our life “Acceptance”. According to human psychology acceptance is a “person’s
assent to the reality of a situation, recognizing a process or condition (often a negative or
uncomfortable situation) without attempting to change it or protest it.”
But what if I tell you whatever we are reading and watching is not a real meaning of acceptance. As
I already mention in my last few articles that whatever we want and needs from world is already
inside us and we just need to find them to recognise them. Let me explain you with an example,
BTS leader Kim Namjoon once said in his UN (2016) speech that: “Maybe I made a mistake
yesterday, but yesterday’s me is still me. Today I am who I am with all of my faults and my mistakes.
Tomorrow I might be tiny bit wiser and that’d be me too. Theses faults and mistakes are what I am,
making up the brightest stars in the constellation of my life”.
In his speech he clearly mentioned and talked about the power of loving ourself power of accepting
our all good and bad qualities. He also said “I have come to love myself for who I am, for who I was,
and for who I hope to become”.
I know it’s frustrating when you don’t feel like you’re where you should be or not doing enough, but
please take things slow try to live in the moment, take couple of moments to just appreciate
yourself, to look how far you’ve come, look how hard you’ve been fighting. Just accept your real self.
Its okay to get lost in the things that you love. In nature, in music, in art. Don’t rush yourself slowly
gradually accept everything, your existence because when we rush, we often miss out on the
beautiful subtleties of life. Sometimes all we needed is a moment of silence, hear the birds singing
their songs, feel the softness of the air against your face. To relax and allow your mind to take notice
our beautiful life. If we allow our self then we experience that a whole lot of life left to live, a lot
more art to make, more love to give and a lot more ocean to see. There is no better feeling than
when we accept our real self, because once we know us we will stop caring about others’ opinions
and what they think of us and then we will being able to appreciate all the little things that we
already have and makes our life wonderful, and when we embrace the weird and wonderful side of
us, it will open doors for a more beautiful opportunist for us, self- care and much more positive
attitude towards our life. “Trust me our present needs us more then our future does”. Todays
reminds for us “stop hating yourself for everything you aren’t and start loving yourself for everything
you already are”.
