5 Powerful Practices to Foster Self-acceptance


Knowing who you are dictates how you navigate through life. It enables you to better navigate through difficult times and appreciate the good time. It allows you to make important decisions more wisely and enjoy healthy relationships. Having a strong sense of identity grounds you in your purpose and brings fulfillment and joy.
Self-acceptance is a vital component in your understanding of your true self. Learning to accept yourself completely means you know exactly who you are and have no desire to be anyone else.
Developing self-acceptance is easy. All you have to do is practice the following steps. Don't be fooled by their simplicity, though. They can be one of the most empowering things you do for yourself!  

1. Be genuine

Always behave naturally and let your true self shine through. Don’t try to copy or mimic others or put on a false front in order to go along with the crowd or feel accepted.
People can quickly pick up on non-genuine behavior and it's not a very appealing quality. Always be yourself and avoid the discomfort and stress of trying to be someone you're not.

2. Be sincere

Make sincerity the essence of who you are and always be true to yourself and others. Honesty and sincerity foster immense self-respect, which in turn makes you proud of being who you are. It also gains you respect and admiration from others, further strengthening your self-esteem and self-acceptance.

3. Celebrate your successes

Celebrate and share your successes big or small and bask in the pride of your achievements. This helps you dwell less on past failures and makes you more accepting of your shortcomings.
Celebrating your successes also helps you create a store of positive memories that fill you with confidence, pride and acceptance of who you, strengths and shortcomings and everything in between!

4. Surround yourself with a support network

It's inevitable that you'll encounter people who make you feel inferior or who don't accept or approve of you. Having a strong support network in place will empower you to ignore what they think.
Your support network should consist of the people in your life who love you and genuinely care about your welfare. These are the people who accept you as you are, overlook your shortcomings and give you immense emotional security. With people like these in your life, you can't help but be proud of yourself and your greatness.

5. Do the things that you love

Strengthen your sense of self by regularly making time for activities you enjoy. Doing what you love puts you in tune with yourself and fosters positive self-perception.
Many of us forget the importance of 'me time' amidst the daily pressures of our hectic lives. Don't fall into this trap as it can cause you to lose your sense of self amidst your countless responsibilities. Always make time to wind down and relax with a favorite activity to stay connected with yourself.


It's not enough to know who you really are unless you're able to accept yourself totally and completely. This is what will propel you toward your greatness and make your life so much more rewarding.
Skyrocket your self-acceptance with these 5 practices and make them a regular part of your lifestyle. They'll keep you grounded, confident and proud to be the wonderful and unique person that you are!
