Acceptance is the solution to all problems including how I think and feel about myself.

In the Big Book it states that acceptance is the solution to all of our problems. This seems especially important for me to apply to myself, that is, for how I think and feel about myself. I believe that to accept myself for who I am and who I am not is to come to love myself completely and unconditionally. When I authentically accept myself I find nothing wrong, there is no criticism of myself only the notion that I am how I am suppose to be at the moment. I am not in a struggle with reality, only an acceptance of it. I am not in a struggle with myself, only an acceptance of who I am and who I have become. For me accepting myself completely is me loving myself. I could say that love and acceptance of myself are the same.
