“I accept myself because I’m alive and have the capacity to enjoy my existence. I am not my behavior.
I can rate my traits and my behavior, but it is impossible to rate something as complex as my ‘self.’
My self consists of innumerable traits, not just this one. I strive for achievement only to enhance the enjoyment of my existence, not to prove my worth.
Failing at any task cannot make me a failure. I can choose to accept myself even if am unwilling or unable to change my ‘character
defects’ because there is no law of the universe that says I can’t.
My approval of myself cannot come from pandering to any external source or bowing external authority.
My self acceptance can only come from me, and I am free to choose
it at any time”. by Nick Rajacic.
