Many times during a heated argument, the following words might just lash out without having any second thought when we tend to be at the losing side
“So what? That’s just me and what can I do about it?”
Well I guess that are still tons of things that we CAN do about it, but most of the time, we’ve decided to take the easy way out by “accepting who we really are.”
However, is it really a genuine acceptance and by doing so, will it really make us a happier person at the end of the day?
A happier person perhaps, but definitely not a better one.
SELF ACCEPTANCE IS A DOUBLE EDGED SWORD
USE IT AS A SHIELD
YOU ARE THE ONLY HAPPY SOUL ACCEPTING WHO YOU ARE
USE IT AS A TOOL
MANY HAPPY SOULS WILL GLADLY ACCEPT WHO YOU REALLY ARE
“Often, it’s not about becoming a new person,
but becoming the person
you were meant to be, and already are,
but don’t know how to be.”
― Heath L. Buckmaster, Box of Hair: A Fairy Tale
Only when we have truly accepted who we really are will there be rooms for us to change for the better and to become a happier person for ourselves, our loved ones, strangers and perhaps even enemies.
Have a great day exploring your lovely inner self!
