The Path to Unconditional Self-Acceptance

The Path to Unconditional Self-Acceptance

By Leon F Seltzer Ph.D. (PsychologyToday.com): Self-acceptance is not the same as self-esteem. Whereas self-esteem refers specifically to how valuable, or worthwhile, we see ourselves, self-acceptance alludes to a far more global affirmation of self. When we're self-accepting, we're able to embrace all facets of ourselves—not just the positive, more "esteem-able" parts. As such, self-acceptance is unconditional, free of any qualification. Read on to understand more about self-acceptance.

Greater Self-Acceptance Improves Emotional Well-being

Greater Self-Acceptance Improves Emotional Well-being

It’s hard for them to believe in genuine caring, and when it does come their way, they are suspicious of it. Of course, self-acceptance (or lack thereof) does not exist in a vacuum — it actually has profound effects on your physical and psychological health. For that reason, it is worth understanding what these effects are, and what you can do about it.

Self-Acceptance is the Key to a Healthier Self-Image

Self-Acceptance is the Key to a Healthier Self-Image

By Jeffrey T. Guterman, PhD.(PsychCentral.com): Much of the field of mental health seems intent on understanding self-image problems in terms of low self-esteem. It logically follows that a solution is to work toward increasing self-esteem. This makes sense on the surface. When people have high self-esteem, they usually feel better about themselves. From my clinical experience, however, increasing self-esteem is a temporary solution because it perpetuates the underlying problem: an irrational philosophy of self-rating. I suggest the key to a healthier self-image is self-acceptance, not self-esteem.

Yet, here you are, looking for a key to happiness and how to lead a fulfilling life. The truth is that a universal key to happiness is a myth.
