Caught myself trying to conform to my own ideals. How does that relate to self acceptance? Self exceptance – I love me except for . . . Blah did dee blah blah.
Be me, first; warts and all. Find compassion. Self compassion for each little bitty thing, good or bad that makes up me. Then love them and the sum of them — me.
Only then can I honestly, happily apply compensations from the me that I am to the me I want to be.
For my self and others, this would be a fine goal for this year.
