If you are someone who is struggling with self-acceptance and have low self-esteem then no worries, kudos to the writer and people who aspire for other people to become their best selves by creating immaculate self-help books.
Self-love or self-acceptance is not a destination that you need to reach. It’s a journey to becoming your best self. But you must not think that you are not enough or something like that or you are not your best self. You are exactly there, where you need to be. You are not early nor you’re late or lag behind.
Self-acceptance also comes with making peace with the state you currently reside in. If you feel like you aren’t satisfied then also make peace with it. Making peace with your current state will make room for you to create the life you want and desire.
Self-love is a form of art. We should embrace who we are and eventually love ourselves. With that being said, there is a lot more to self-love. If you want to explore this subject then consider going through the list of self-help books, I have assembled for your journey.
