I’ve been listening to Sound’s True’s Self-Acceptance Summit, a free 10-day online event with leading experts such as Dr. Parker J. Palmer, Dr. Rick Hanson and Iyanla Vanzant presenting on self-acceptance. It’s been life changing. I realized that almost all problems lead back to a feeling of ineptness, not enoughness and low self-worth. It explains why we people please, self-sabotage and are so unhappy.
We are all works-in-progress. But imagine if we were all a little more self-compassionate, kind and supportive? Imagine what we would teach our children. Imagine how much kinder we would be to each other. While we can’t change the world, we can do much good by working on our self.
