We tend to have very foolish ideas about who we are in life. This is not meant as criticism because each of us is doing the best that we can at this very moment. If we knew better, if we were to come to have more understanding and awareness about who we really are, then we would do and be different.
It is important to accept where you are in life and to not put yourself down for being where you are. Also, acknowledge yourself for being ready to make a positive change in your life. Accepting where you are and that you are ready to move forward is part of the initial stage of your transformation.
