No matter what thoughts you have about your self-worth, you are perfect the way you are. If you could only have the idea how the universe sees you, your self-confidence will be renewed and you would happily embrace the wholeness of your being. But every time you see your physical imperfections, you fail to respond to a situation in an emotionally balanced manner. There is nothing bad in trying to be your best but what hurts is when you are enslaved by a compulsion to meet some artificial idea of what it is to be perfect.
Perfection is an illusion and the healthiest path to optimal life is to embrace your flaws. Following are the few ideas that might be helpful in accepting yourself:
Accept that humans make mistakes:
You must be aware of the act that humans make mistakes and when you accept that, it will become easier to embrace your own imperfections. It is because when you take the pressure of perfection off the table, you become kind to yourself. This will help you to be authentic and not try to be someone you are not.
Using weaknesses as strengths:
Your weaknesses can actually become your strength. You only need to work on them instead of hiding them. You need to recognize them and instead of treating them like a downfall, work on them as your to-do list. Work on your weaknesses every single day and do things that you are afraid to do. This entire process will help you to change your weaknesses into your strengths and something that you can be really proud of.
Know your path:
Although it is not possible to predict the journey but you can control your own feet. Just stay true to who you are and take intentional steps that take you closer to your goals. When you are clear on what you want, you will feel confident wherever you are headed to.
Learn to laugh:
It is normal to laugh at something that is happening around you. But have you ever thought of laughing at your own self? Laugh at your own mistakes instead of cursing yourself. Whenever small blunders that you do during the day. These few moments will be very enjoyable and will give you enough strength to continue further.
