Does Self Acceptance Diminish or Lessen the Desire for Personal Growth?
Do we stop evolving if we really become accepting of our self?
I just wanted to ask you how one can balance gaining more self-awareness and gain confidence without losing drive to improve one’s self? How can we balance self-improvement (which I think we can all agree each of us could definitely use) with being okay with who we are and liking ourselves where we are all as well?
Thank you for your time, KC
I would like to ask, however, do you feel as though there is a place for judgement at times? I would agree that we can grow and improve much greater in the presence of inspiration than criticism and judgment, however such inspiration doesn’t always have an effect on us and isn’t even always there for us to experience (or at least very difficult to find or easily overlooked)… sometimes we need more of a “slap upside the head” if you will, to really make us realize how ugly our behavior is or has become. Our self image can be so misguided that we can think that we’re not so bad until we’re really harsh with ourselves. And I feel that sometimes the only time we really can get motivated to make needed changes in ourselves (no matter how much inspiration is around us) is to get mad at ourselves for not doing xyz
