Accept Yourself

To be beautiful means to be yourself.
You don’t need to be accepted by others.
You need to accept yourself.

  1. Hello Mr Two Hawks My name is Michael Beyer and your words have stuck me deeply and have gave me some insight to some problems I have.

  2. Well put🙂 we are all unique and different so why try to be the same. Us being all the same would be dreadfully boring lol. Plus we are all the best at being ourselves and the absolute worst at trying to be anything other. I believe we all want to be accepted for who we truly are, but that can’t happen if we let our fears of being not accepted overtake us making of try to be something that fits a bill we think others will like.

  3. Reminds me of Carole King’s “Beautiful.’ Thanks to you – that song deserves it’s place in my day, perhaps to kick off today’s painting session!

    The good thing about accepting one’s self, is that it gives amazing self confidence.. I am invincible – hmmm. and another song for painting!

    Thanks for always adding brightness to our days!
