Self Acceptance does not mean letting go of who you are. There are always things about ourselves that we are less comfortable with, but they are at their essence, what makes us, ‘us’. Accepting those things and integrating them into our lives instead of hiding them can be a therapeutic release. It is also important to recognize that you don’t need to prescribe to what someone else expects you to be. The Love Story provides both an online journal and an online community of Journal-Artists designed to hold space for you to process the overwhelming flood of suppressed emotions and situations that lead to where you are right now. The beginning of treating emotional challenges is creative expression. Explore how our journaling program will help you process that pain inside the genre of “Journal-Artism,” a writing modality that fuses journaling and journalism with the personal journey. Begin the process of self-acceptance you can begin to free yourself. Reveal, deal, feel, and heal.
Becoming self-aware gives you the power to break toxic habits by catching yourself in the act. Awareness is the first step to increasing emotional intelligence.
Self-respect is earned through watching yourself grow and become more in tune with your soul. Listen to your body and surround yourself with others who care about your human growth.
We all experience a full spectrum of emotions, but knowing how to handle them or knowing what triggers them is key to knowing yourself. Knowing yourself will boost confidence, and confidence is key in accepting yourself.
Try guided meditation to bring down your heart rate and begin to hear and feel what your body is telling you. Giving your time and space to just ‘be’ will provide you with the creative expression you need to lay the foundation to accepting yourself.
To accept yourself you must first see your true self
