Love the way you are

"There will be many reasons why you don't like yourself, but when did you last find a reason to love and accept the way you are! Accepting self in the critic way is so easy, but have you ever tried listing the reasons why you are awesome just as "you."

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh

We spend half of our life by trying to find out- the good factors in us; and rest half is spent comparing them with others. Why it is important to compare your strengths and or weaknesses with others. Is it really so difficult to know who you are as a person- both from the inside and out! 

Everyone is made up of some good and bad qualities; then why sometimes we feel that; we are the only unfortunate ones! Why we depend on others to tell us that, "we are beautiful, we are brilliant, we have extra good qualities; etc." Does this really means, you are beautiful only when someone tells you, and otherwise not! 

When we learn to accept ourselves, we realize that; our bad habits or certain bad qualities does not make us bad and unacceptable. Nobody is perfect! 

"With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world." 
                                                      - Dalai Lama

A new life dawns when we realize things.  

Unless you have a clear idea of the reasons; why you should love the way you are, you will never have a peaceful life. You will always feel- you are not perfect and something is missing from your life. No human being is perfect. So are you! But you are definitely "better" in many ways- from others'.
So be a "shameless lover" of yourself. Nothing is more satisfying than knowing yourself better than anybody! 

As long as you are not hurting others or being the reason of their sorrow- loving the "imperfect you" is good. Hating yourself won't make you a better person. Learn the reasons why you should change and wish to be better than before. When you know why- your journey to a beautiful life begins. 

"I always knew, I am weak in many things, but was ashamed of accepting it. May be scared; what people will think about me." But slowly, I practiced facing people- just the way I am! I may be poor in many things, but I am too good in few things too! And nobody knows that better than me. All I did was- started believing in me and my capabilities. This is my life and my fight to let everyone know that- I am no waste! Not a reason for anyone to feel shy about; rather a pride for my family and kids!

  2. Epsita... I learned that lesson a year ago when I started losing weight, I had to learn to love myself where I was... otherwise I wouldn't love myself anymore after losing the weight. I have gained a few pounds back but that has not stopped me from loving myself... my weight is not who I am... this post is a wonderful reminder of valuing ourselves... so happy to see you back posting more often xox
