Maybe you’ve spent countless hours self-doubting in the past, hiding behind fear, anxiety and uncertainty.
And despite such struggles and life’s difficulties, there’s one thing you’ve known all along and stood by:
You could do more; you could become more; you could achieve more.
Which is why you’ve never stopped improving yourself.
When we battle through insecurity and low self-esteem, loving ourselves seems like a feat to achieve.
Not because you dislike who you’re.
It’s just that your mind is yet to be trained to see positive things happening.
And here’s your chance to see that you might be a step closer to loving and accepting yourself than you think.
I have 10 signs below showing you you’re finally truly accepting yourself.
Read through and see how many signs you can spot in you.
It might surprise you you’re doing much better than you give yourself credit for.
10 Awesome Signs You’re Finally, Truly Accepting Yourself
1. You Smile More
When you accept yourself as you are, you naturally feel relaxed and comfortable.
You no longer pretend to be someone else. No more ridiculous and tiring “act” to impress or please others.
Life is lighter.
You smile more.
2. You Thank Your Past
Your past – regrets and failures – doesn’t cause you pain and heartache any more.
With a calm demeanour, you thank your past for the great lessons it has taught you and make a promise to not repeat the same mistake.
You now fondly look back and thank the past for the invaluable life lessons and memories it has given you.
And appreciate the present and look forward to the future.
3. Your Inner Critic is Quieter
You’ve learned to tame your inner critic with the right self-talk.
She may make her appearance now and then, but now you know how to win her over.
You let her have a say to check on the choices you make, but ultimately you trust your decision.
Your inner critic no longer takes a driving seat.
4. You Only Compete With You
You understand competing with others is pointless and competing your today to your yesterday is more productive and fulfilling.
Naturally, you nod fervently at this:
Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…
the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself

5. You Love Being Unique
You fully embrace the uniqueness of you. Love being you.
Trying to fit in is awfully tiring and, ultimately, is the biggest disservice we can do to ourselves.
You’re free from following the crowd.
You stay true to your unique being, giving yourself a chance to develop fully and become the person you are meant to be.
6. You are Happy for Others’ Success
As you’re happy being you, you’re filled with love for yourself and others.
You embrace others’ success with open arms.
Genuinely love seeing others succeed.
You understand we’re all in this life journey together.
Your whole life perspective has shifted from competition to togetherness, pursuing harmony and contribution over the competition.
7. You Grow More Confident
You value your own choices and opinions free from others’ influences over you.
You embrace it as an opportunity to grow and learn.
You feel empowered and, with each decision you make, you trust yourself and become more confident.
8. You Earnestly Accept…
… all the positive self-talk when you say it out loud.
Here is one example:
I like who I am, and I’m glad to be me.
There’s no more, “um… nah…” or “not really”.
You feel it, fully accept it and, when you say it, you mean it.
You’re free from self-doubt, fear and uncertainty about yourself. You do truly love being you!
9. You Invest Your Time in Self-Love
Now that you know the positive impact of looking after the number one (that is, you) on the overall quality of your life, you invest your time in self-improvement.
You continue to do all the things that make you fall in love with yourself.
10. You Truly Enjoy Your Life
You love setting goals and actively pursue them and enjoy living your life intentionally and on purpose.
You look for hobbies and interests to broaden your life experiences and do all those things alone and with others.
I’m sure you’ve found many signs telling you you’re on the right track.
Continue to be the biggest fan, the most devoted admirer, and the best cheerleader to yourself on your life journey.
Fully embrace who you are and love yourself more than anyone can love you.
