Self Acceptance

Self-acceptance

Having self doubts no matter what gender identity or sexual preferences you may have has become the norm of our existence.  No matter where you turn to, you are being told that you could do, or be better, if you looked a certain way, or buy this or that product. Plastic surgery has become the solution for the unhappy, and big pharma has a pill that will make you forget all of your problems. We live in a synthetic world, a world that has kicked the natural into the curb. Many are dying with cancer, a disease that invades your soul. Cancer takes no prisoners, every cell of your body is consumed, changed and turned against itself. The treatment is no better, radiation and chemo is the destruction of the good and the bad in hopes to eradicate itself.

We want so badly to belong, to be seen like the cool kid, beautiful, radiant, slim, a masterpiece of perfection is our goal, after all the boob tube tells you so. No wonder our kids are wanting to be someone else, adults can’t deal with their world anymore, prozac and booze becomes the breakfast of champion in most house holds. Religion only sends us into a further spin by condemning our every move and inner feelings. Try to send a positive message to someone and they drag you in their dark world and shoot you without remorse.

I have found that self acceptance is the way to find true happiness, the more we try to fit into the protocol we are told we should be, the more it pushes us away from our center. Life is not easy, it is filled with contradictions, pain inflictions and over all sad undertones. The only one that can change that is you, switch the channel, turn it off, find your center, even if it means you need to find a hole to crawl in and meditate away your lack of outer control. You and only you have the key to your happiness and acceptance.

I have a long road to travel but I know I am in the right path. Breath and exhale, take one baby step at a time and before you know it you will be there.

 

Love you all

  1. You do have a point Maritza. I am going through a difficult and painful time and reading and listening to your webcast gives me hope. Meditation helps especially mindfulness meditation (It is surprisingly easy). You are right about meditation and also about sending someone a positive message – oh, do they drag you down! Until recently I didn’t even feel like healing my depression because of the people around me who only had negative things to say about their life, even though they had everything – a well-paying job, a house, car, wife/husband, children etc. I would sometimes feel like I am more happy than them even though I am still struggling to build my life. But through my blog and internet in general I have met more people like you and Lynna who instill love and hope in life for me. Thank you.
