Inspirational Thoughts on Acceptance



No amount of self-improvement can make up for a lack of self-acceptance.
-- Robert Holden

Growth begins when we start to accept our own weakness.
-- Jean Vanier

You can outdistance that which is running after you but not what is running inside you.
-- Rwandan Proverb

The secret of life is not to do what you like, but to like what you do.
-- American Proverb

This above all else: to your own self be true.
-- Unknown Author

Self-acceptance comes from meeting life's challenges vigorously. Don't numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
-- J. Donald Walters

When you like someone, you like them in spite of their faults. When you love someone, you love them with their faults.
-- Elizabeth Cameron

-- Andre Gide

Consider a duck. It encounters the air, water and soil. It benefits from each, is hindered by none, harms nothing. They are cute, too. Be a duck!
-- Old Slovakian Saying

We are all one great big family, and any one of us can get hurt at any moment...We should never walk by somebody who's in a wheelchair and be afraid of them or think of them as a stranger. It could be us - in fact, it is us.
-- Christopher Reeve

When we see ourselves in a situation which must be endured and gone through, it is best to make up our minds to it, meet it with firmness and accommodate everything to it in the best way practicable. This lessens the evil, while fretting and fuming only serves to increase your own torments.
-- Thomas Jefferson

Happy is the one who forgets that which cannot be changed.
-- German Proverb

Your conscience is a little triangle in your heart. It acts like a pinwheel. When you're good it does not rotate. When you're bad, it turns around and the corners hurt a lot. If you keep on being bad, the corners eventually wear off, and when the little triangle spins around it doesn't hurt anymore.
-- Unknown Author

Once what you are living and what you are doing has for you meaning, it is irrelevant whether you are happy or unhappy. You are content. You are not alone in your spirit. You belong.
-- Sir Laurens van der Post

Any fish is good if it is on the hook.
-- Russian Proverb

What we acquire without sweat, we give without regret.
-- American Proverb

It's a rare person who wants to hear what he doesn't want to hear.
-- Dick Cavett

When we cannot bear to be alone, it means we do not properly value the only companion we will have from birth to death - ourselves.
-- Eda LeShan

You cannot make anyone love you. What you can do is to let yourself be loved.
-- Unknown Author

-- Unknown Author
