In the podcast entitled, Learning to Accept Yourself, we discovered that self acceptance is a process. It is not something we can accomplish overnight. It requires that we get really honest with ourselves, and take a good hard look at our beliefs and our actions – at true inventory of ourselves.
And honestly, looking at all aspects of ourselves can be time consuming. It’s also hard, and sometimes scary work.
In this podcast we’ll discover that if we try to tackle everything about ourselves all at once, we are bound to become overwhelmed. But when we find ourselves in this situation, we can remember to pull back, to let up just a little. We can remind ourselves, Easy Does It.
We’ll find that in many ways, it is our inability to have compassion for ourselves that drives us to judging ourselves, which in turn brings up feeling of shame. When our shame becomes more than we can handle, we head straight for denial. And where there is judgment, shame and denial, there cannot be acceptance.
And in the end, being gentle with ourselves during the process not only makes it more bearable, it’s actually readying us really look deeply into every aspect of our being. Thus, we learn to better accept ourselves.
